Our research is grouped into five areas of expertise:
The Centre for Industrial Management has built up solid expertise in the areas of production planning, transportation, logistics and supply chain management. Current research projects focus on algorithms for vehicle routing and production planning problems. More information.
This research area is concerned with techniques for the evaluation and optimisation of product design, mainly rooted in a Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) approach. Techniques for the assessment of life cycle costs and environmental life cycle impact are considered. Also the development of a new generation of knowledge management systems is a research interest of the division. More information.
This research area covers multiple themes: policy analysis and transport system analysis, systematic design of transport networks, intelligent transportation systems, safety, accessibility and sustainability (environment) aspects of the transport system. More information.
