Michael J. McCann, BSc(Eng), DIC, PhD, CEng, FIEE.
Dr Mike McCann, a
Chartered Engineer, is an expert in the application of quantitative math methods to give practical solutions to problems in business and engineering and the physical sciences. With a strong background in electrical engineering, electronics and process control engineering and in management sciences and operations research, he has managed teams of analysts and engineers in business planning, in electronics development and in simulation consulting

|Invitation. McCann can help if you have a
design or operational problem that needs some technical support that is outside your
team's experience, some quantitative assessment of what is really the cause of the
difficulties, some design alternatives or just a fresh look by an intelligent
If you have a problem with the behaviour of a market sector, plant, process or item of equipment and would like to get a quantitative handle on it to improve yield or optimise performance, then contact me. I'm always ready to give a little time to discuss a new puzzle, in confidence, of course. We'll only worry about fees when there is some defined work. I can be flexible about how I work with you.
