Gene is interested in using computers
to do better engineering, using simulation to provide
training and job opportunities and establishing and managing
Gene has used Abaqus and Hyperstudy. He has led a number
of efforts in establishing and managing collaborative
programs to use computers to improve engineering. Key
programs include the DARPA Initiative in Concurrent
Engineering, the Rapid Response Manufacturing Program
co-funded by the NIST Advanced Technology Program, and the
DARPA co-funded Robust Design Computational System.
Gene worked in the Navy Nuclear Power Program, becoming
an expert in the operations of nuclear propulsion plants.
Since 2002, he has promoted processes to take variability
into account in engineering analysis to improve simulation
accuracy, generally referred to as stochastic simulation.
Gene started Decision Incite in May 2008 and worked with
IBM, Egineous, MSC, and Ontonix to develop stochastic
simulation. He worked with the Navy at the Naval Surface
Most recently I coordinated a U.S. Navy effort to capture
the ship design process using process capture from Plexus
Gene has a degree in nuclear engineering at MIT.
He has written "Collaborative R&D: Manufacturing's New
Tool" in 1999," which was published by John Wiley & Sons.
