Operations Journal Kick Off

August 19, 2009

To kick off the launch of this journal, I'd like to offer up the first post in order to talk about its motivation and goals we hope to achieve...

My name is Andrew, and I am currently an undergraduate Industrial, Systems and Operations Engineering student at Arizona State University, where LROC operations are based. At LROC, I am currently employed as the web developer.  This means I am the person who is primarily responsible for maintaining, developing and making updates and additions to the LROC website (as well as other websites for associated projects).
