·        If you are a retail chain, a DOD enterprise such as the USTRANSCOM or an OEM using the traditional value-chain analysis tool, can you accurately predict the supply chain cost of any merchandise item, or any activity on the battlefield? More importantly, can you optimize your supply chain as integrated systems-of-systems rather than as individual trading partners or value chains?


·       Do you know that supply chains are not static and must be continuously reconfigured to improve the weak links?  Have you been successful with your traditional value-chain analysis tool to do so?


·       Do have the emerging Command and Control (C2) and its supporting systems-of-systems infrastructure to integrate your supply chain into e-business architecture using your current application modules -- Enterprise Resource Planning, Operating-Resource Management, Selling-Chain Management, Customer Relationship Management, etc.?


Our premier technical and scientific research platforms that address these and many other issues include the following:


  • Our pioneered Activity-Based Simulation (ABS) models that independently execute and interact with each other, using emerging autonomous purposeful agents or individuals paradigm, to simulate an entire supply chain, and that can even be easily adapted to creating the DOD Global Information Grid (GIG)


  • Activity-based Costing/Management models for predicting the supply chain cost for each merchandise item using data from the distributed ABS models, and for supply chain optimization


  • Axiomatic design for reconfiguring the current supply-chain into an intelligent integrated global distributed enterprise system such as the GIG, using the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles


  • Adapters that allow different application modules in the supply chain to be integrated into e-business architecture, in the High Level Architecture (HLA) Runtime Infrastructure (RTI) environment.  No other interfaces are needed.  Just plug the modules (even legacy ones) into the Internet, and let the adapters handle the data interchange among them, through the HLA RTI.


Our proven technical and scientific research activities are the results from years of collaborative scientific research with the U.S. Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and other major industrial partners-- Boeing, General Dynamics EDGE Innovation Network, etc. 


Regardless of the geographical location of your trading partners (whether onshore or offshore), cultural and language differences among them, we will design and integrate them into one system -- operating under one global umbrella through the Web.




The current scorecard of enterprises adopting SOA concludes that it is extremely difficult to implement SOA. The IABSRI believes that SOA requires “big-picture thinking” for integrated design and operation of any enterprise value system. The IABSRI is the first firm to create a training program that uses its cutting edge SOA peer-reviewed concept paper integrated with the US Department of Defense (DOD) visionary (SOA)-Based DODAF concepts based on “big-picture thinking” and its recently, successfully and revolutionary Army's funded SBIR Phase-I scientific-based and cutting-edge technology, as the blueprint to transform any enterprise into (SOA)-Based integrated adaptive value chains. We call this new groundbreaking scientific architectural framework and invention, as “IABSRI (SOA)-Based DODAF Approach: For Designing Net-Centric Value Systems For The Future”.


As Eweek puts it with the old DODAF [,1895,1744550,00.asp]: “When the DOD tells its IT and other systems suppliers to follow specific rules in defining, designing and documenting products and services, it's not just a good idea; in many cases, it's the law.”  The new integrated IABSRI concept and the new (SOA)-Based DODAF complemented by its  Army's funded SBIR Phase-I scientific-based and cutting-edge technology, is a revolutionary blueprint for not only designing DOD agile enterprises but also for designing any integrated and agile (SOA)-Based systems-of-systems. So, call us to start an exciting journey to become the next generation of world-class adaptive ecosystems.

IABSRI also provides the following consulting services:
