Dr. A. R. Habayeb
Abdul R. Habayeb, Ph.D. is a recognized industry leader in areas of systems engineering, architecting, and effectiveness. He has over 35 years of Operations and Systems research and management experience. His research specialties include engineering systems, architecting systems, Systems Effectiveness, and Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM). Dr. Habayeb's theorem on conflict analysis, called the Variable Interaction Law, is one of the first theorems to mathematically quantify the value of information in operational scenarios. His methodology for integrating information technology into manufacturing processes has been applied to actual manufacturing environments. Once applied by the manufacturer, substantial productivity improvements and cost savings have been realized.
Dr. Habayeb’s extensive engineering background includes design of logic circuits and control systems, performance evaluation, reliability assessment, and analysis and quantification of systems effectiveness. Dr. Habayeb has managed several information, and communications programs. He has also published several papers, reports, and a book entitled "Systems Effectiveness". He is a frequent lecturer in the areas of CIM, Architecting, Engineering Systems, and evaluation of Systems Effectiveness. He has been requested by domestic and international clients to lecture on these topics.
Prior to joining the BITS management team, Dr. Habayeb served as Systems Command, Guidance and Control Technology Administrator for the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR)in Washington, D.C. At NAVAIR, he helped identify alternative manufacturing processes that the United States Navy could use to produce systems and utilize technologies faster and more economically. One of his research projects helped modernize a sensors factory that has realized substantial productivity improvements and cost savings since its modernization.
Dr. Habayeb has a Bachelor of Science
degree in Electrical Engineering from Kansas State University. He
received his Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and his
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kansas. He has
served as Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, and Chairman of the
Electrical Engineering Department in Jordan. Dr.Habayeb has taught
Systems Engineering courses at the University of Maryland and George
Washington University. He holds several
patents in the field of switching circuits and data communication. Dr.
Habayeb is a senior member of the IEEE and Sigma Xi.
