Systems Engineering and Management
Group head:Virgilio Cruz-Machado

The main focus of this research group is on specific themes of industrial systems design, engineering and management, along with horizontal scientific areas of research that cover the vertical areas but also extend to the other research groups.

Currently there are 5 vertical Research Area Teams:
•Supply Chain Management
•Processes & Projects
•Quality, Six Sigma & Lean
•Digital Platforms & Interoperability
•Ergonomics & Safety

The 3 horizontal Research Area Teams are:
•Engineering Design
•Advanced Intelligent Decision Systems
•Knowledge, Innovation & Entrepreneurship
