Brian is Parker Aerospace's most distinguished leader - bringing more than a decade of diverse engineering and business experiences from many large companies and disciplines.

He brings in unique experiences from a number of industry giants worldwide, including Unigraphics-- CAD/CAM software, EDS--systems integration and consulting, Ford, GM and Delphi --automotive, NASA -- aerospace, AAR--railroad and NASA-- government.

Dr. Prasad is internationally well known and has extensively worked on Knowledge-based Systems, Knowledge Management, Optimization, Concurrent Engineering, Integrated Product development, Supply Chain, and Collaborative Product Commerce (CPC). Before joining Parker Aerospace, he was a visiting Professor at California Institute of Technology, Pasadena and managing Spec2Market Solutions as Chief Technology Officer. Brian is one of the few e-Manufacturing company executives, who possess a strong multi-dimensional perspective and understanding of the e-manufacturing processes and practices.

Dr. Prasad is pioneer in combining knowledge-capture technologies with industrialautomation needs to deliver innovative solutions that no one has done before. His visionary ideas, strong leadership and relentless drive for instantaneous product realization have helped him to transform his creative ideas into viable e-manufacturing products and services.

Proving his innovation and drive, Brian has numerous publications and over a dozen of books on high-performance modern manufacturing, concurrent product development, knowledge-based systems and OEM-to-OEM (O2O) Internet exchange solutions.

Before joining Parker Aerospace, CSD group in Irvine, CA, Brian came from two premier organizations within Electronic Data Systems, Inc., Automated Concurrent Engineering (ACE) and Unigraphics Solutions (UGS), where he conceived, architected and launched the development of industry-leading, next-generation knowledge-based CAD/CAM system.

Within a year of its launch, he successfully delivered at the Fall UG-Users Conference an embedded solution to capture all sorts of knowledge including geometry within the same CAD/CAM environment - never done by anyone before. Prior to UGS, Brian served as a Senior ACE consultant and Director of ACE technology at Electronic Data Systems.

Brian graduated from one of the top US universities, Stanford, with a Degree of Engineer in Applied Mechanics, now a Division of Mechanical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology in 1977.

It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Kevin Gautier of Formlabs describes the making of a carbon fiber mold for an intake manifold, using a $3,300 3D printer, during Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
