Dr. Keskinocak, George Professor in the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE), has been named as interim associate dean for faculty development and scholarship in the College of Engineering (CoE) Dean’s Office, effective July 1.
David Gachuz is just one of the LEAP (Logistics Education and Pathways) program’s latest success stories. The high school senior, who is days away from graduation, has always wanted to work for Delta Airlines. Accordingly, he signed up for and completed the first of four LEAP courses, Supply Chain Management Principles, when he heard it could help him get a job at Delta.
Abe Cheung was a senior in high school when his business teacher approached him about enrolling in the Georgia Tech LEAP program. Having previously taken some logistics courses as part of his high school curriculum, Cheung knew that he was interested in pursuing additional education in supply chain and logistics. Plus, he said, there was the motivation of doing work that was recognized by Georgia Tech.
ISyE announced that Professor Xiaoming Huo has been selected by the American Statistical Association as a 2017 Fellow for distinguished contributions to the field of statistical science.
The Georgia Tech Agile Communication Architectures team is one of 30 teams selected to participate in the DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge. The team is spearheaded by Matthieu Bloch, an associate professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Sebastian Pokutta, David M. McKenney Family Associate Professor in ISyE. The team comprises graduate students from both schools and comes out of the interdisciplinary Center for Machine Learning at Georgia Tech (ML@GT).
ISyE announced that Dean's Professor and Stewart Faculty Fellow Shabbir Ahmed has been appointed to the Anderson-Interface Chair, effective July 1, 2017.
Professor Alejandro Mac Cawley (Ph.D., Georgia Tech ISyE) and his Chilean graduate students from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile recently visited Georgia Tech in May. This was a prime experience for the students, who are studying industrial engineering and supply chain and are looking to gain insights on U.S. company practices and culture.
31 practitioners in global health and humanitarian response, from 17 countries across the globe, gathered at Georgia Tech’s Global Learning Center for a week in May to participate in the certificate program in Health & Humanitarian Supply Chain Management offered by Georgia Tech’s Center for Health & Humanitarian Systems.
Watch VIDEO recap of the April 19th seminar from professors in College of Computing, the School of City & Regional Planning, and the Enterprise Innovation Institute on new research related to improving health and urban planning locally and internationally.
More than 50 professionals from industry, government and academia participated in the first ever Georgia Tech-sponsored ports logistics conference April 10-11 in Savannah. The program was sponsored by DINALOG (Dutch Institute for Advanced Logistics) and the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL).
Dr. John Bartholdi recently held the race, which involves shipping packages from the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute at Georgia Tech to a hard-to-reach destination around the world.
As human spaceflight inches closer to launching a Mars mission, onboard planning and mission adjustments loom large as potential issues. On a Mars flight, the communications lag time with Mission Control will be between four and 22 minutes, and astronauts need to be able to make some decisions on their own, especially in the event of an emergency.
When the best-laid plans need to be adjusted, how do astronauts reconnoiter?
This question is at the heart of "Technologies for Mixed-Initiative Plan Management for Human Space Flight," research conducted by three Georgia Tech engineering professors, including ISyE's Martin Savelsbergh, James C. Edenfield Chair and professor.
Shi will serve a four-year term as the editor-in-chief of IISE Transactions, which is the monthly flagship journal of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers.
Tens of thousands of patients each year are diagnosed with heart valve disease, with many in need of lifesaving surgery to treat the condition.
Now, researchers at the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute -- including ISyE Professor Chuck Zhang -- are working on a tool that could help cardiologists care for patients with the disease. Using highly detailed imaging from CT scans, engineers are using 3-D printers to make an exact model of an individual patient’s heart valve.
Evren Ozkaya (MSIE 05, Ph.D. 08) has long been fascinated by supply chain management. In this interview he discusses his passion for and interest in supply chains, his motivation for starting a supply chain consulting company, and the future of supply chain management.
