“Dov Dori provides an exceptional text book … . The flow of the material builds the readers competence providing the knowledge to absorb the extensive material. The information is provided in clear language and solid detail which facilitates easy access to the abstract notions modeling requires. … I highly recommend Systems Engineers, and especially engineers working to become expert in model-based systems engineering, to work through this book and gain an understanding and appreciation for this minimalist approach.” (Robert Kuhfahl, MITRE Corporation, 2017)
Professor Dov Dori is Harry Lebensfeld Chair in Industrial Engineering and Head of the Enterprise System Modeling Laboratory at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management, Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. Since 2000 he has been intermittently Visiting Professor at MIT's Engineering Systems Division, where he is currently Lecturer. He received his PhD in Computer Science in 1988 from Weizmann Institute of Science, MSc in Operations Research from Tel Aviv University in 1981, and BSc in Industrial Engineering and Management from Technion in 1975. His research interests include model-based systems engineering, conceptual modeling of complex systems, systems architecture and design, software and systems engineering, and systems biology.
Prof. Dori invented and developed Object-Process Methodology (OPM), recently adopted as ISO 19450. He has authored over 300 publications, including journal and conference papers, books, and book chapters. Prof. Dori has mentored over 50 graduate students. He chaired or was co-chair of nine international conferences and workshops. Among his many editorial duties, Prof. Dori was Associate Editor of IEEE Transaction on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and currently he is Associate Editor of Systems Engineering. He is Fellow of INCOSE – International Council on Systems Engineering, Fellow of IAPR – International Association for Pattern Recognition, Member of Omega Alpha Association – International Honor Society for Systems Engineering, and Senior Member of IEEE and of ACM.
