Dr. Nenad Ivezic is a research staff member of Systems Integration Division (SID) in the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. Ivezic works on measurement science problems that typically lead to new testing methods and standards required to solve challenging technical problems in advanced manufacturing systems.
Dr. Ivezic leads projects that investigate advanced technologies for systems integration, semantic technologies, standardization, and testing. Some of the recent projects he initiated include Global Testing Network project, Supplier Discovery in Dynamically-Formed Supply Chains, Production Network Supplier Characterization, Manufacturing Network Service Models, and Smart Manufacturing Reference Architecture.
Dr. Ivezic has been a long-time contributor to the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) where he developed testing methods and standards for material replenishment and logistics processes. He is a two-time recipient (2006 and 2007) of the annual Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) Outstanding Achievement Award. Nenad has been a long-time contributor to the Open Applications Group, where he lead development of the Business-to-Business Interoperability Testbed to commercial B2B software solutions to assure conformance to application standards and also co-chaired OAGi Semantic Integration Group. He is a recipient (2013) of the OAGi Outstanding Contributor Award.
Nenad extensively publishes on topics ranging from interoperability, advanced manufacturing, to testing, and standardization. He has been on international program committees of the Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications Conference (I-ESA) since 2006 and the e-Challenges Conference from 2005-2012. He was the Chair of the Global Interoperability e-Business Test Bed (GITB) CEN Workshop and contributor to the development of the ebXML Business Process Catalog within the Un/CEFACT standard development organization.
Before joining NIST, he was a Senior Researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he worked on research problems at the intersection of manufacturing and information technologies and for which he was awarded three patents.
