His most important contributions were authorizing two key engineering programs, SizeMaster and iPRSM. Sizemaster, introduced in the 1980’s, was the first software program to automate the complex process of sizing and selecting pressure relief valves. In 2004, based on the foundation of SizeMaster, iPRSM was introduced. iPRSM, an engineering program to design and audit relief systems, is a transformation tool for management of relief systems. For his work with iPRSM, Josh was awarded three patents 7,565,215, 7,617,013 & 7,904,190.
