Dr. Owen Molloy is currently a College Lecturer in the IT Centre, NUIG. His special areas of interest are the Extended Enterprise and agent-based approaches to Enterprise Application Integration. His academic background spans a primary degree from NUIG in Electronic Engineering (1985), a masters degree from UCD (1987 - specialising in telecommunications) and a PhD in Industrial Engineering (NUIG - 1995) in the area of Concurrent Engineering / Design For Manufacture. Dr. Molloy's broad range of business experience includes the development of CAD interfaces in Paris, enterprise information systems with Nortel (Galway) and the management of an ERP localisation start-up in Galway. From 1990-1995 Dr. Molloy worked as an R&D project manager for CIMRU, NUIG, and managed a number of national and international industrial research projects. Dr. Molloy is the principal author of "Design for Manufacture - Concepts, Architecture and Implementation", as well as other contributed book chapters, journal and conference papers.
Dr. Molloy is currently managing the Enterprise Ireland Research Innovation Fund project XML Based Expert System Shell for Distributed Agent Intelligence (X-ESS), as well as being involved in the IP2000 project. He is also involved in a number of SFI, EU and ATRP proposals pending approval in the areas of Extended Product Design, Meachtronics Systems Re-Design and E-Business Enablement for SME's.
