L3 Techonologies Training and UI Improvements

L3 Technologies supplies a wide range of products to aerospace, telecommunications, and wireless customers.


L3 was undergoing a large ERP and PLM project tying together 20+ homegrown systems into a cohesive, user friendly, and efficient software package. I led the UX initiative consisting of a range of GUI modifications to increase efficiency and decrease user confusion and error.


  • Teamcenter is a very function heavy application, but it is incredibly complicated for a new user.
  • There was a lack of user friendly documentation.


  • I wrote comprehensive training documentation and led training courses for:
    • Teamcenter Security
    • Command Suppression/Application Suppression
    • BMIDE
    • Style Sheets
    • Master Configuration Document
    • Externally Managed LOVS
    • Custom Icons and Property Renders
    • Report Builder
    • Query Builder
  • I configured 300+ style sheets to create a better user experience
  • I conducted contextual interviews and focus groups for identifying GUI tweaks.
  • I implemented command suppression across all applications and application suppression across all groups and roles.
  • I built VBA macros to automate workflow documentation.
  • I modified property renderers and unique icons for clearer status identification.


  • I received an aggregate rating of 4.8/5 from L3 Technologies.
  • This was one of the most well documented and implemented Teamcenter projects. It won Siemens “Best Aerospace and Defense Project” of 2012.
  • I was originally slated to work on the project for 3 months and was retained for almost 2 years.
