Maestro Story

The Swift Construction Company (SCC) is a fictional business in the Tom Swift series of youth science fiction and adventure books, published in the early 1900’s  The SCC is essentially a small-to-medium enterprise (SME), engaged in high-tech design engineering, manufacturing, sales and services.

Books published before 1923 are now in the public domain, and the employees, projects, customers and suppliers provide the Maestro project with a convenient source of requirements, stories, actors and supporting data.

The following employee organization chart was created for the Maestro project.
