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.

Galerie Living is a developer, owner and operator of senior living communities that include independent, assisted living and memory care. Galerie Living is headquartered in Atlanta.
Galerie Living is interested in conducting an analysis of care delivery to their residents. Care is scheduled and delivered based on ADL's (Activities of Daily Living). Staffing is based on the number of ADL's needed during a time period and staffing ratios required by the state department of health. Residents are charged for care based on the difficulty, time to complete and number of ADL's. Galerie wants to improve efficiencies in care delivery including load balancing of staff, efficiency roadblocks, improving staff's travel paths, understanding the true burden of each ADL (average time to complete each ADL type, factors that influence time to complete, best positioning of staff, etc.). A time and motion study and an analysis report would be appropriate.
Experience or classwork on time and motion studies. Students should be comfortable interacting with staff and seniors. Taking the time to understand effective ways of interacting with individuals with dementia and understanding how it effects seniors would be helpful before the project start.
