SCL includes some of the world’s most experienced researchers in their fields who enjoy sharing their perspectives on a wide variety of topics. Our faculty is world-renowned and our students are intellectually curious and our alumni can be found around the globe in leadership positions within a wide variety of fields.
SCL reaches out to students, educators, businesses and the logistics community in an effort to increase exposure and accessibility to supply chain & logistics expertise through a variety of educational programs, partnership opportunities and outreach activities.
New ideas and new tools are born in the robust research environment supported by the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute. Solutions and improvements produced by researchers provide businesses with the high level of competitiveness that is critical to their success in the marketplace both at home and overseas.
Thousands of logistics and supply chain management professionals have advanced their knowledge—and their companies’ profitability—with the education they obtained through the courses and graduate degree programs offered through the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Gunter Sharp is a emeritus professor in ISyE. He received B.S and Ph.D. degrees in industrial engineering from Georgia Tech, as well as an M.S. degree in engineering-economic systems from Stanford. From 1982 to 1995, he was program manager for warehousing systems research within Georgia Tech's Material Handling Research Center (MHRC), a consortium jointly funded by U.S. industry and the NSF, where he was responsible for research in automated guided vehicle system configuration, unit load storage systems, work-in-process storage systems, system cost analysis, accumulation and sorting systems, and order assembly systems.
From 1976 to 1981, Dr. Sharp was project director for the Multi-State Corridor University Research Program, a U.S. Department of Transportation-sponsored consortium involving nine universities. This research group developed analytical relationships between freight transportation improvements and industrial development. Results included a multi-mode multi-commodity network representation, mode share analysis, market share analysis, network capacity improvement algorithms, commodity flow data preparation, and demonstration of the integrated procedure for a seven-state area. Dr. Sharp's interests in logistics include multi-modal transportation systems, material flow systems, and order assembly systems.
