While in college Mr. Frederick developed a least cost routing algorithm for Metromedia, the predecessor of MCI / WorldCom. Immediately afterward he starting work at aviation information technology startup General DataMax, Mr. Frederick was instrumental in a request for proposal from Boeing to develop a format for their forthcoming Illustrated Parts Catalog (IPC) on Optical Drive. He worked on a proprietary algorithm that used a vector format for images saving 90% of the disk space over a raster format. Moving to IASG in the late 1980’s, Mr. Frederick worked in all aspects of the organization, from financial controller to administrative and operations management. While at IASG he developed one of the first inventory bar code systems for aviation parts using off the shelf Intermec equipment. He wrote and developed one of the first Windows based Inventory management software systems Automated Aviation Material Management (AAMM/AARM), in Superbase and subsequently migrated it to the first version of Microsoft Access in 1992. This program is still in use today at several aviation aftermarket companies. He was instrumental in the modification and customization of SYMEX for a commercial heavy check facility. The software featured a barcode system for all labor and materials. The system supported a workforce of over 100 mechanics and tracked both productive and nonproductive time. Mr. Frederick developed a material clearinghouse system for the industrial power generation industry. The system, http://www.ursmart.net, enabled the IPG industry to pool and list items available for sale or lease worldwide. Mr. Frederick developed customized database tools for Starman Auction Services which enabled the capture of auction pricing on machinery, equipment, tools, and parts. He created an Internet alternative to the ILS in 1995, Internet Parts Locator Systems (IPLS). He rewrote the C.A.S.E. database for the world’s major airlines that allows quality control personnel from around the globe to pool their resources, saving the industry millions of dollars a year. Mr. Frederick has completed all requirements and is an Accredited Senior Appraiser, ASA.

He was instrumental in the IS management of an FBO, working closely with management to create reports and make software changes that streamlined the process of recording productive and non-productive time. When the FBO was caught in the liquidity trap of 2001 he took on the task of working with creditors in a non bankruptcy scenario, allocating the remaining funds to pay off debt at 52 cents on the dollar. Richard was in charge of a recertification effort of a large Texas based aviation inventory. This process used a custom program to manage the work of four DAR’s for a period of nine months and successfully recertified over 40,000 parts. After the successful wind down of International Airline Support in 2003 Richard became a key component of Av Sales Group and is involved in every aspect of the organization.
