I'm a lean engineering professional with a unique blend of academic & corporate management experience. I'm not only a notable architect of knowledge-based lean product development (LPD) technology/ solutions, but I am also an award-winning researcher/ innovator -- recognized for my extensive publications, accomplishments, contributions and services to the engineering community at large.

I'm known best for delivering innovative, efficient and practical knowledge-based engineering (KBE) solutions to product design and development using off-the-self product life-cycle management (PLM) tools (like CATIA or NX) for aerospace & automotive companies. I help organizations lean their process by working closely with their existing team, process and tools & identifying the inherent gaps between management's expectations, core technologies, & actual team performance or production throughputs.

I’m a collaborative, hands-on thought leader with a passion for improving productivity & quality by combining knowledge-capture technologies with industrial automation needs. I am good at improving the company’s profitability and growth by mining the knowledge from the subject matter experts (SMEs) -- those who possess the Intellectual properties (IPs) so that others, who need their knowledge, can produce equal or better results (or products) in less time and costs.

I never "hold cards close to my chest" since I believe in sharing knowledge and teaching others what I've learned. As such, in addition to publishing “how to” techniques, I am an exceptional educator, manager & leader. Till today, I am the founding Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Concurrent Engineering now entering its 29th year of continuous publication. I have written two-volume textbooks entitled “Concurrent Engineering (CE) Fundamentals.”
