Major Accomplishments

Originator of the Policy Delphi technique, which is an extension of the Delphi Method for use in Policy and Decision Analysis.  Member of the Design team on the Delphi dealing with the Social, Ethical and Legal Implications of Biomedical Research for the National Commission on the Protection of Human Subjects.  Designer of a Delphi on the Future of the Steel and Ferro-alloy Industry for the National Materials Advisory Board.  First to automate and conduct Delphis in real time on time-sharing computer systems, in 1970.

 

While at the Office of Emergency Preparedness, designed the nationwide Management Information System that was used for the 1971 Wage-Price-Rent Freeze (EMISARI).  This system and others that I designed (RIMS, IRIS, PREMIS) were used for a decade and a half by the U. S. Government for crisis management monitoring of most economic disruptions (e.g., coal strikes, transportation strikes) and commodity shortages (e.g., oil, gas, fertilizer).  That system also provided the first example of instant messaging in an operational environment.

 

Designed and implemented the EIES (Electronic Information Exchange System) as part of a 25 year research program in to the design of structured Computer Mediated Communications Systems (CMC) to conduct field trials and evaluations of alternative applications of human communications via computers.  All the research reports of htis center and some of hte earlier OEP work is now archived and on the Web by the NJIT library:  http://library.njit.edu/archives/cccc-materials/

 

Over thirty years of basic and applied research at NJIT in computer based communications covering design, implementation, application, evaluation, and assessment as well as incorporating controlled experimentation, field trials and methodological development.  This included:

  • Development and design of the Electronic Information Exchange System (EIES) as a system able to implement tailored communication structures for different applications.
  • Developed an evolutionary approach to the development of computerized conferencing systems tying ongoing evaluation methodologies into the evolutionary design of the system.
  • Design of software facilities to support the implementation of Computerized Conferencing Systems (Groupware, Group Decision Support Systems, etc.)
  • Design of specialized communication structures for emergency management, human problem solving, decision support, project tracking, learning and education support.
  • Design of the first fully electronic information marketplace, providing the ability of buyers and sellers to accomplish all marketplace functions within one information system.
  • Responsible for the design of the initial features in the software that comprised the Virtual Classroom functionality in both the original EIES and the follow on EIES2 system.

 

Administrative Accomplishments:

Development of the Computerized Conferencing and Communications Center at NJIT devoted to exploring the research, development, and assessment problems associated with the use of computers to aid human communications and cognitive processes.  This Center received over four million dollars worth of funding.  The work of the Conferencing Center at NJIT has resulted in the publication of at least five books and over two hundred professional papers by researchers associated with the center both from within and without NJIT.  The research reports of the Center are now available at: http://library.njit.edu/archives/cccc-materials/

 

Management of the original EIES operation serving over 2000 users in the U. S. and abroad from 1976 to 1990 and responsibility for the evolutionary development of that system.  Responsible for converting the operation of EIES from being based upon grant support to one dependent upon user fees.

 

Developer of many of the Information System degree programs at NJIT and provided leadership for the IS faculty as well as creating and developing a department in 2001 as well as chairing it for the first three years.
