You always get help from others. Here are some of the folks who have helped us along the way with their encouragement, advice, Java applets and Web page stuff.

Dr. Robert T. Sumichrast, Virginia Tech, for his encouragement and advice as our "Beta Tester" and special thanks for technical input on the application of Evolutionary Algortihms to production scheduling.

John A. Pew for the unique "Coalesce" applet used on our Welcome Page!

Jay Boersma for the wonderful Webpaper used in our backgrounds!
