How BinMaker was
The suggestion to create a program
which could "BIN-up weather data on-the-fly"
came from Mike Witte of Gard Analytics. Lew Harriman of
Mason-Grant developed and defined that idea as part of
his recommendations for the revision of AFM 88-29 (DOD
Engineering Weather Data Manual) He also wrote and
produced this manual.
Doug Kosar at GRI provided the
inspiration, guidance and funding needed to bring the
idea to a finished product. Dean Plager of Quantitative
Decision Support managed the project. He also defined
the program functions as well as the user interface, and
provided quantitative assessment of program results. Bob
Sacks of Bluejay Software was the programmer. Jim Judge,
P.E. of Linric Company provided technical programming
assistance, as well as the PSYCHLIB library of
psychrometric functions that allows BinMaker to
calculate values not found in the TMY-2 files.
