IE59000 - Perspectives on Systems Engineering

Fall 2016

Days/Time: TBA / TBA
Credit Hours: 3

Learning Objective:
None

Description:
Today's engineers need to solve problems existing in large-scale complex systems. This course provides various control approaches from interdisciplinary perspectives, recognizing that such approaches are capable of producing the simple yet effective tools and techniques that are applicable to the large-scale, real-time decision-making problems. The principles behind the approaches are in general from the human or biological societies, and they are similarly applied to the complex systems, giving rise to globally desirable performance through local (in space and/or time) decisions and interactions. This course teaches how to apply auctions and social welfare functions from economics, swarm intelligence and learning from biology, and centrality from the study on complex networks (e.g. social networks, biological networks, and technological networks), to various decision problems in supply networks, logistics, computer/communication networks, sensor networks, multi-robot systems, and service/ubiquitous systems.
