“In 2012, I want The RMS Partnership to be a non-profit leader in thinking about how Systems Engineering can boost Reliability, Maintainability and Supportability in the Department of Defense at sharply reduced cost. Addressing these issues early on and continuously throughout a systems life cycle is a key factor that will significantly contribute to ‘Better Buying Power’ while effectively responding to America’s global needs. Bill Bajusz is one of the right people to help me do that,” said Dr. Russ Vacante, the Partnership’s President and Executive Director.
Bill Bajusz has thirty five years’ experience in the private sector serving the DoD, has extensive knowledge of the DoD Acquisition Management System, and currently is President of William Bajusz & Associates, Inc. He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP®) and is also Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITILv3®) certified. He received his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Master Certificate in Business Analysis from Villanova University. A Senior Member of the American Society for Quality (ASQ®), he completed Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training this year and is currently training for LSS Black Belt certification and ASQ’s Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence (CMQ/OE).
Dr. Vacante founded the Partnership in 1993 and was a Professor and Program Director, Sector Leadership at the Defense Acquisition University for six years (2002-2008) and prior to that a Professor at the Army Management Staff College after serving as Chairman, interdisciplinary Reliability, Supportability and Maintainability Task Force, at what is now the US Army Communications-Electronics Life Cycle Management Command (CECOM). He was elected President of the International Society of Logistics (SOLE) in 2003. RMS Partnerships’ goal is to enhance communication and collaboration among industry, government and leading universities in order to promote an integrated systems engineering approach for end-to-end management of RMS(L) issues. Dr. Vacante is also an Adjutant Professor and Research Team Leader, Systems Engineering Program - Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering - SMU and President at TRANSLOG International, LLC.
