Our aim is to develop novel discrete/continuous optimization models and techniques for problems in process systems engineering, with special emphasis on planning, scheduling, and more broadly, enterprise-wide optimization. Our techniques, which include mixed-integer and disjunctive programming for handling discrete and continuous decisions, and stochastic programming for incorporating uncertainty issues, are applied to batch and continuous processes, process supply chains, and to energy systems, including gas and oil, IGCC, and biomass.

Under Dr. Subrahmanian's direction, the n-dim group is interested in designing information systems that support the social processes that are integral to design. The group studies engineering work processes in order to create methods for managing knowledge in engineering design. They consider an understanding of work processes to be an integral part of system's development. In order to analyze work processes the n-dim group has researched and developed methods for studying the flow and use of information in design organizations. They then use an evolutionary prototyping method build and test design applications that support engineering knowledge management.
