flexible manufacturing, communications systems, embedded systems,
material transport systems, and automotive test equipment. He has
over 15 years of project management experience in defense and industrial
contracts. His recent project experience includes:
· SPANS Supply Chain Dynamics: developed supply chain analysis
tools and simulation models of a Newport News Shipyard supply chain
to evaluate improvements in the chain to reduce cost and lead times.
· AORIST: developed techniques from statistical physics to
evaluate the dynamics in agent-based negotiating systems. Developed
methods to identify and control pathological dynamics in agent-based
· ADAPTIV: developed novel distributed pheromone-based algorithms
for flight planning and air campaign control. Applied genetic algorithms
to tune the performance of the system for a variety of missions
obtaining a ten-fold increase in performance.
· AEMSI: technical consultant to the prime contractors (AMD
and ObjectSpace) to develop a semiconductor fabrication scheduling
systems using agent-based negotiation.
