For more than three decades, Anthony (Tony) has been a pioneer in cost forecasting and analysis technology. He has led PRICE® both in its former incarnation as a division of Lockheed Martin and since its inception as a successful independent company, as President, in 1998.
As PRICE® Product Development Manager for several years, Tony led a team of operations researchers, statisticians, and computer scientists in the development of predictive models and tools to serve the cost estimating and analysis community.
Among Tony’s credits are the design and implementation of the first application-specific integrated circuit cost-estimating tool. He soon added enhancements that produced the first parametric electronic module estimating system, which is still an avionics industry standard. He holds a patent on the PRICE® labor and materials cost estimating model, and, for the PC market, he designed XPERT/H™, a desktop version of the PRICE® Hardware Model.
Tony was appointed in 2001 by then–NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin to serve on the International Space Station Management and Cost Evaluation Task Force. He helped NASA to address cost growth by assessing the quality of the ISS cost estimates as well as program assumptions and requirements, and by identifying high-risk budget areas and potential risk mitigation strategies.
