Dennis M. Buede

Chief Innovation Officer and Executive Principal Analyst

Dr. Buede has over forty years of experience in both the theoretical development and engineering application of decision support technologies. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. from the Engineering-Economic Systems Department of Stanford University and his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. He has been a Professor of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management at Stevens Institute of Technology and Professor at George Mason University. He has done extensive research in the fields of decision analysis, data fusion and systems engineering.  He has pioneered in the development of new decision methodologies in the areas of system design and evaluation, and resource allocation.  He has authored The Engineering Design of Systems: Methods and Models, coauthored a book titled Decision Synthesis, and authored or coauthored numerous professional and technical papers in the above fields. He belongs to the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science, and the International Council on Systems Engineering.  He is a Fellow of INCOSE.
