Welcome to Distributed Control Lab


Distributed Control (DC) lab is located in the School of Industrial Engineering at Purdue University. DC lab was established by Dr. Seokcheon Lee in August 2008. Our main focus of research is on the design and control of large-scale complex network systems, e.g. supply network coordination, dynamic resource allocation, and emergency logistics. The decision principles are especially designed from multidisciplinary perspectives, and they have been proven effective and efficient appropriately for the real-time decisions even in large-scale operations. The principles found in human or biological societies are similarly applied to the complex engineering systems, giving rise to globally desireable performance through local (in space and/or time) decisions and interactions.
