Description

The Institute for Systems Research's (ISR) research philosophy is that design and control methodologies can be developed to integrate components and technologies. At the heart of ISR's research agenda is a drive to advance and exploit fundamental methodological tools for solving systems engineering problems, including intelligent control; modeling and optimization; communications and signal processing; computing; operations research; human factors; reliability and risk assessment; and systems integration. These systems tools form the foundation for ISR's collaborative research and teaching. ISR's research has substantially advanced the state of art in these areas, motivated and clarified by the Institute's experience in applications-focused research projects. By taking the systems level approach to engineering problems, ISR is able to deliver revolutionary rather than incremental improvements in engineering systems. ISR has produced enabling technologies for a variety of applications, including manufacturing processes, consumer products and very large scale engineering systems such as hybrid communication networks. And in the process of developing these solutions, ISR also has made important contributions to basic research and education. Strategic partnerships with the industrial community are critical to ISR's success and continuing evolution. ISR researchers partner with practicing engineers to integrate control, communications and computation with physical and process knowledge. They synthesize existing and new technologies into better systems and products, and develop new tools for systems analysis and design. The Institute continuously and actively engages its industrial partners at every level. Companies can participate in ISR activities in a variety of ways: as industrial partners, as members of ISR centers or consortia; by sponsoring research or participating in joint research; or by sponsoring fellowships and participating in educational programs.
