All of Optima's systems managed by Optima's principal, Dr. Kamal Golabi, utilize operations research/management science methodologies.

Dr. Golabi earned a Masters of Science degree from the University of California, Berkeley, in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research with a minor in Statistics. He then earned his Ph.D. at the University of California, Los Angeles, in Management Science/Operations Research while attaining minors in Mathematics and Economics.
Prior to founding Optima, Inc., Dr. Golabi utilized his desire to apply operations research to practical problems while working for Woodward Clyde Associates and The World Bank. Optima was founded in 1984 to focus on using operations research to optimize issues within network and infrastructure management systems, thereby saving companies and governments money while also protecting the public.
Optimization methods are continuing to replace simplistic ranking methods in an increasing number of industries. At Optima, we pride ourselves on the fact that we have demonstrated the shortcomings of such subjective approaches and designed and developed major infrastructure management systems that have replaced such methods. For example, the bridge management system PONTIS, now used in all 50 states and supported by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), replaced a ranking method that had been developed by the FHWA itself, which had been used in every state for many years. The inadequacy of these methods-no matter what weights and what factors are used-are many and are also described in the award-winning article, "PONTIS: A System for Maintenance Optimization and Improvement of US Bridge Network" (Golabi and Shepard, Interfaces 27, pp. 71-88, 1997).
The pioneering pavement management system developed by Golabi in the early 1980s has, over the last 20 years, replaced elementary methods for pavement management in every country that has adopted a nationwide system.
