See program guidelines for contact information.
The Operations, Designs and Dynamical Systems (ODDS) Cluster supports fundamental research on the mathematical and decision-making aspects of engineering, including design, control, and optimization as applied at levels ranging from component to enterprise systems. Supported research includes the use of sensor data in decision-making and control, and extends to service sector systems that address areas such as manufacturing and healthcare delivery. Support is provided to enable advances in engineering decision-making, optimization and control, and their application to engineered systems.
