He is a recipient of the INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Science) Simulation Society's Lifetime Professional Achievement Award, of the Society's Distinguished Service Award, of the Winter Simulation Conference Board of Directorsí Award for Distinguished Service, and of the Victor L. Bernard Faculty Award for Leadership in Teaching. He is a Fellow of the Decision Sciences Institute and author of four textbooks, among them "Simulation Using GPSS" and "An Introduction to Simulation Using GPSS/H," which were in widespread use for many years in this country and abroad. He served ten years on the WSC (Winter Simulation Conference) Board of Directors, and was Board Chair two of those years. At the 40th anniversary of the WSC, his co-authored paper "Inside Discrete-Event Simulation Software: How It Works and Why It Matters" was designated as one of ten Landmark Papers given in the first forty years of the conference. He is a Charter Member of the Decision Sciences Institute and is a member of ASIM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation, the German-language simulation society), the Institute of Industrial Engineers, and INFORMS, and is listed in Marquis Who's Who in America. His research interests over the years have focused on discrete-event simulation (DES), and include the logical foundations of DES software, design of DES experiments, analysis of DES output, and the use of DES for decision support, such as in the design of manufacturing systems.
