The faculty members in the School of ISE research at the intersection of Methodological and Impact Domains. Our work in Methodological Domains contributes to theory and tools in Systems Engineering, broadly including Design and Manufacturing Processes, Human Factors, and Reliability, and in Analytics, broadly including Predictive Modeling, Optimization, Simulation, and Decision Analysis. We apply these methodological innovations to three important collaborative Impact Domains aligned with OU’s strategic verticals of research and creative activity.
Cyber-Physical-Social Systems are complex systems that integrate physical components and processes, computational elements, and social interactions to perform tasks and provide services. Our applications recognize the interdependence among humans with physical and technological systems during their normal operation and the impact on communities during their disruption.
Health and Medical Systems refer to the infrastructure, organizations, and practices that are in place to provide healthcare services, promote public health, and support the well-being of individuals and communities. We improve these systems, which encompass a wide range of components and functions, including healthcare facilities, medical technologies, and public policy.
Predictive modeling for community health monitoring and control
Aerospace and Defense Systems refer to the technologies, equipment, and analytics used in military applications, national security, and aerospace activities. These systems, particularly important to military bases in Oklahoma and the aerospace sector in the region, encompass a wide range of components and capabilities, combining advanced manufacturing, maintenance planning, and operational strategies.
