Industrial engineering, operations research, and systems engineering are fields of study intended for individuals who are interested in analyzing and formulating abstract models of complex systems with the intention of improving system performance. Unlike traditional disciplines in engineering and the mathematical sciences, the fields address the role of the human decision-maker as key contributor to the inherent complexity of systems and primary benefactor of the analyses.
Georgia Tech pursues leading-edge research with industry, government, and community partners.
At ISyE, we are a national leader in 10 core fields of specialization: Advanced Manufacturing, Analytics and Machine Learning, Applied Probability and Simulation, Data Science and Statistics, Economic Decision Analysis, Energy and Sustainable Systems, Health and Humanitarian Systems, Optimization, Supply Chain Engineering, and Systems Informatics and Control.

High Level Objective: Development of decision support tool to provide visibility and transparency to the upstream supply chains. The tool will measure relevant key performance indicators to assess the supply chains performance with the potential to use Ai+ML to predict disruptive events towards the objective of enhancing flexibility, resilience, and agility. Complication: Supply chain management is based on knowledge and understanding of the supply chain tiers (Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 ...), and with limited visibility to these upstream supply chains management in a data driven method is limited at best. These supply chains at Tier 1 are well documented but visibility of performance is extremely limited. Tier 2 & Tier 3 supplier visibility and performance is nearly non-existent. How would a digital twin of our supply chains network enable Steelcase to proactively monitor performance and identify problems? And subsequently leverage a learning system using Ai+ML to predict performance and simulate alternate strategies? Objective: A digital twin of the seating category supply chains network that drives a tool that monitors the network health and performance for all Tier 1 & Tier 2 nodes. Stretch goal objective: Explore Ai+ML to develop a learning system that explores the ability to predict network performance events before they happen to enable preventative measure actions.
