Dr. Kofi Nyamekye is the founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Integrated Activity-Based Simulation Research, Incorporated (IABSRI). The IABSRI is a small African American-owned technical and scientific research firm in modeling and simulation of any enterprise to achieve a superior competitive advantage, through its visionary (SOA)-Based DODAF concepts. It was formerly Nyamekye Research and Consulting (NRC), Incorporated. Through his career, Dr. Nyamekye has developed the educational, research and industrial experience to design and operate any manufacturing production system. As an educator (a former college professor) and a researcher, he has published extensive articles on the design and operation of Cellular Manufacturing Production Systems and Simulation and Modeling of the Traditional Manufacturing Processes. Dr. Nyamekye has received many awards, among them the 1994 Educator of the Year Award from the St. Louis Society of Manufacturing Engineers Chapter 17 and the 1996 Best Paper Award selected by the Engineering Division of the American Foundrymen’s Society.
Under a grant from NIST, Dr. Nyamekye has established the methodology for designing Activity-Based Simulation as a federate in the NIST distributed enterprise simulation model for the NIST IMS MISSION. The NIST federation uses the HLA RTI architecture. The model uses the entity-relationship (E-R) modeling technique for designing an activity-based costing model with input data from the simulation federates for supply chain optimization.
