While with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, East created the Corps’ Standard Data Exchange Format (SDEF) for cost-loaded Critical Path Method (CPM) schedules. SDEF has been built into the Corps’ enterprise software to help get Corps’ contractors paid on time for over 25 years. He developed parametric planning and automated schedule analysis tools, and provided related scheduling consulting services. His 2015 book, the Critical Path Method Tutor, published by McGraw-Hill is available on Amazon.com.

At last check the system averaged 100,000 active users per year.
