Abstract

This collaborative research effort between the National Science Foundation Center for e-Design and Center for Engineering Logistics and Distribution will result in a synergy that integrates the expertise from each center examining this extremely complex problem, which is referred to as Design for Supply Chain, in a holistic manner. The major objective of this research is to develop a working prototype software-based test platform that optimizes and simulates a user-defined supply chain for products that are being (re)designed. In addition, results from this research will be incorporated into existing and new graduate courses. This paper describes this ongoing collaborative research effort.
