Ontonix Obtains Contract from the NCMS

Como, March 24-th 2010. Ontonix has been awarded a contract from the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to participate as one of the key players in the NCMS-led initiative to develop a rapid and scalable methodology to assess the credibility of CAE models. Model validation is a key enabler of High Performance Computing which can be vital to the competitiveness of the U.S. manufacturing industry in the 21st century.

Ontonix will demonstrate the applicability of its Complexity-based Model Validation capability on the data and models to be developed in collaboration with the other key participants in the project. The other key participants are L&L Products, a tier 1 automotive supplier and The National Crash Analysis Center at the George Washington University.

NCMS is a non-profit body and a premier innovator of collaborative R&D, with over two decades of experience translating research results into real-world applications.

Author of nine books on simulation, uncertainty and complexity management, rating.

Developed in mid 90s the theory of eigenvalue orbits, a generalization of the concept of eigenvalue.

In 2000-2005 has developed the first Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT), including a comprehensive measure of complexity.

Founded Ontonix Complexity Management in 2005 in the USA and launched in 2006 the first commercial system for MEASURING and managing complexity: OntoSpace.

In 2007 launched first on-line Resilience Rating for businesses, an objective and transparent rating system:


In 2009 delivered real-time technology to measure the complexity and stability of patients during operation or permanence in Intensive Care Units.


Developed a new theory of risk and rating published in 2009 in a book entitled "A New Theory of Risk and Rating".

Over last decade develops quantitative complexity management (QCM) technology and solutions for applications in economics, finance, Risk Rating and Management as well as in Asset Management and medicine. In the past five years works towards the democratization of ratings.

In 2013 he founded London-based Assetdyne, focusing on design of complexity-based high-performance portfolios and complexity-based asset allocation and asset management.


He is currently focusing on creating a new Rating Agency and a fund which will be managed via complexity technology (QCT).
