Below is excerpt from Case Study followed by link to article.

I thought it was rather odd that the article states "Due to lack of
resource, we planned to hire a temporary programmer to work for a period
of 9 months"...

This is IBM Rochester for cryin out loud...

Oh well, interesting read...

Due to lack of resource, we planned to hire a temporary programmer to
work for a period of 9
months. The temporary programmer was to work half time on the year 2000
project. We trained the programmer on how to use our programming process
documentation procedures, code review procedures, our change control
process, and our
program implementation process.

We developed our strategy by first identifying where dates were used.
This was to be done using
various AS/400 string search tools such as FNDSTRPDM and QUSRTOOLS. We
scanned our
production source files including QDDSSRC, QCLSRC, QRPGSRC, QCSRC,
and QPASSRC. Also, we scanned any source members that were currently in
development. We
used search strings such as 'DAT', 'CVTDAT', 'YY', 'MM', 'DD', 'QDAT',
'CENT', 'DAY',
'MONTH', and 'YEAR'.
