Research Areas

Dr. DeLaurentis' doctoral research was motivated by the emerging paradigm of Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD), which sought to bring historically process-based statistical approaches to product design. His work focused upon the characterization, representation, and quantification of the impact of uncertainty on aerospace design problems. Unique techniques were developed to accomplish this, including the use of Design of Experiments combined with probability theory to obtain rapid estimates of the cumulative distribution functions (CDFs) of key system metrics and objectives. Subsequently, a more direct adoption of robust feedback control concepts has been applied resulting in a new formulation for the design problem to include technology impact assessments and requirement exploration.

In addition to methodological advances, the type of problems being faced by the community is changing significantly. Aerospace problems are increasingly becoming recognized as of the "system-of-systems" type, consisting of multiple interacting complex systems of differing type and function. The air transportation system is one example, as are associated issues such as personal air transportation and airborne delivery logistics architectures. Such challenges will require more than just "vehicle synthesis"; they will require "system-of-systems synthesis". Thus, Dr. DeLaurentis has embarked on two projects exploring the use of system dynamics, agent-based modeling, and other approaches to address these multi-disciplinary, multi-system problems. In addition, the areas of network theory and complexity are being explored, to better account for interconnections as well as nodes (i.e. systems) in designing future system-of-systems. The ultimate goal is to better define individual system requirements by understanding the context in which they will operate and to ensure that such operation will be robust over a wide range of plausible futures.
