Today is a sad day at Clockwork Solutions as one of the co-founders of the company and technology, Professor Arie Dubi, has passed away.
All of us at Clockwork send our sincerest condolences to Professor Dubi’s family and friends. Prof. Dubi left an indelible mark on Clockwork and those who were fortunate enough to get to work with him. His pioneering work in Discrete Event Simulation in Systems Engineering set the foundation on which Clockwork Solutions’ current technologies are based.
Professor Dubi had a distinguished career as a Nuclear Physicist and professor of Systems Engineering. He published multiple scientific journal articles in the areas of nuclear physics and Monte Carlo discrete event simulation theory. He published 3 books in the field of Monte Carlo simulation in Systems Engineering: “Monte Carlo Applications in Systems Engineering”, Wiley, 2000; “System Engineering Science: Analytical Principles and Monte Carlo Methods”, 2003; and “Predictive Modeling and Simulation for Maximizing System Performance”, 2006.
He was honored as a Grand Fellow of the MIRCE Akademy “for the original development of the science-based, predictive simulation method for Modelling Industrial Reliability, Cost and Effectiveness” – shown below on the left in photo taken in 2001 as he received this honor. Professor Dubi is shown more recently, 2010, in the photo on the right taken for an article in which he was interviewed about the need for nuclear power plants in Israel (read the article and interview here: What Happens in 50 Years When the Oil Runs Out?).
Professor Dubi will be missed and celebrated for his friendship, numerous mentorships, his sense of humor, and his foundational contributions to our company.
