Congratulations to Mark Kiemele for receiving the prestigious ITEA- RICHARD G. CROSS AWARD
For over thirty years, Dr. Mark Kiemele has pioneered fact-based mathematical tools, techniques, rules-of-thumb, and methodologies that have fundamentally helped test and evaluation in academic, industrial, governmental and professional organizations around the world. He has personally instructed over 30,000 leaders, scientists, engineers and managers, in all seven continents. For the past ten years, Mark has authored and personally taught T&E tutorials that have consistently received the very highest ratings.

The subjects have included Design of Experiments (DOE) as a powerful data collection strategy, Historical Data Analysis, High Throughput Testing, Measure Systems Analysis, Operational Capability as part of T&E, and Primers in Scientific Test and Analysis Techniques (STAT). Mark is also a well-published author in T&E. His tutorials, well-vetted articles and speaking events at T&E conferences have always been at no cost because of Mark’s passion and commitment to T&E, and to the soldier, sailor and airman.

The ability to anticipate T&E’s future requirements with the latest tools and methods remains one of Mark’s many contributions. Throughout his illustrious and unprecedented career, Mark maintains the character and values he had since being commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force: modesty, humility, honesty, hard work, loyalty to family, colleagues, customers and friends, and absolute integrity.

ITEA is pleased to present this well-deserved award to Dr. Mark Kiemele.
