Moshe had extensive experience in industry and non-university research in a number of fields; in particular, design of complex machines, instruments, control systems, and production processes and tools. His university experience, extending 39 years, included teaching and research of very diverse topics in manufacturing. He conducted research in theory of machines, material transformation processes, reliability, wear, surface integrity, metrology, and modeling and optimization of manufacturing systems. Moshe's research was developed uniquely in and across the areas of processes, machines, systems, and metrology in manufacturing. It was common in discussion with Moshe on a new research idea, regardless if it was in manufacturing processes or systems, for him to say, “I did some work in this topic 20 years ago,” and he would show you a paper of his pioneering work. Moshe was an explorer and a trail blazer of manufacturing research.
