My expertise is in the application of system modeling, optimization, and statistical analysis to
product and process development. Many corporations these days are learning to use system models as
the basis for driving product and process development cycles. Creating models up front requires
more time, but reaps huge benefits downstream. It allows one to flow high level customer
requirements down to sub-system specifications, optimize the system as a whole for things such as
yield and return on investment, and eliminate the cost of over specifying sub-systems that are
pieced together after being separately designed and developed. Models also help in solving all the
unexpected problems that arise at later stages, and provide a quick starting point for next
generation product design.
