Learning Outcomes You will be able to use ProModel simulation software as a tool in production and service environments by modeling systems in ProModel, simulating various scenarios of the systems and analyzing results.   Instructor Erik E. Kostandyan completed his Ph.D. program in Industrial Engineering at Western Michigan University. He has a Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and Systems Management from American University of Armenia.
His primary research areas of interest are systems simulation and modeling, reliability analysis, reliability test configurations and statistical models in reliability. Since 2006 he has been studying different set-ups’ for reliability tests. The title of his dissertation was "Optimum Failure Truncated Testing Strategies."
He has 5 years of teaching experience in areas such as Quality Assurance and Control with Minitab software and Advanced Engineering Systems Simulation with ProModel simulation software.
