Towards Design for System Resilience and its Economic Implications
- Babbio Center, Stevens Institute of Technology
This presentation will describe current research being developed at the System Development & Maturity Lab (see SysDML.com) to solve problems of national importance related to operational effectiveness. In specific, the talk will focus on the technical considerations needed to Design for System Resilience. The talk will describe the relationship of reliability and vulnerability analysis as the basis for the analysis of system resilience. Also, the talk will point out how the metrics developed can be used to quantify the economic impact of designing for resilience. Finally, the speaker will talk about potential research for future development.
BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Jose Emmanuel Ramirez-Marquez is an Associate Professor of the School of Systems & Enterprises at Stevens Institute of Technology. A former Fulbright Scholar, he holds degrees from Rutgers University in Industrial Engineering (Ph.D. and M.Sc.) and Statistics (M.Sc.) and from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in Actuarial Science. His research efforts focus on the development of mathematical models for the analysis and computation of system operational effectiveness: reliability and vulnerability analysis as the basis for design for system resilience. Also, the development of evolutionary algorithms for the optimization of complex problems of system performance design. In these areas, Dr. Ramirez-Marquez has conducted funded research for both private industry and government and, has published over 70 refereed manuscripts in technical journals, book chapters and industry reports. Dr. Ramirez-Marquez has presented his research findings both nationally and internationally in conferences such as INFORMS, ISERC and, ESREL. He is an Associate Editor for the International Journal of Performability Engineering. Nationally, he has served as the President of the Quality Control and Reliability division board of the Institute of Industrial Engineers. Internationally, he is a member of the Technical Committee on System Reliability for the European Safety and Reliability Association. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
