Paul F Hahn
Mr. Paul F. Hahn has more than 30 years of experience in the positioning
industry. He has worked as a land surveyor, construction surveyor, in
sales, marketing and product development for surveying and construction
instrument manufacturers.  Paul was a contributor to the Automated Machine
Guidance (AMG) developments at Spectra Precision during the early days of
AMG.  He has held senior management positions at several companies within
the positioning industry including, Carl Zeiss, Nikon, Geotronics, Spectra
Precision, Trimble Navigation and now as President of a firm that
continues to provide technical, marketing and business consulting to
geomatics product providers.

For the last 20 years, he has been a pundit of the Return on Investment
analysis approach for adopting productivity-enhancing technologies.

Paul will contribute "The Bottom Line" to Machine Control Online, a column
focused on that all-important facet of any business.

A note from Paul:

"All capital investments require careful scrutiny of their Return on
Investment.  What factors contribute to this return?  How long will it
take?  What are the financial ramifications after the break-even date?
What emerging technologies could impact your bottom line? Are there labor
or regulatory issues that could constrain your adaptation of advanced
technology?  Where are we in the technology adaptation life cycle? What
are the different entry levels for automated machine guidance (machine
control) and what are their price points?  How do these issues impact your
bottom line?"

Stay tuned for future installments of "The Bottom Line", from Paul Hahn.
