As human spaceflight inches closer to launching a Mars mission, onboard planning and mission adjustments loom large as potential issues. On a Mars flight, the communications lag time with Mission Control will be between four and 22 minutes, and astronauts need to be able to make some decisions on their own, especially in the event of an emergency.

When the best-laid plans need to be adjusted, how do astronauts reconnoiter?

This question is at the heart of "Technologies for Mixed-Initiative Plan Management for Human Space Flight," research conducted by three Georgia Tech engineering professors, including ISyE's Martin Savelsbergh, James C. Edenfield Chair and professor.

Tens of thousands of patients each year are diagnosed with heart valve disease, with many in need of lifesaving surgery to treat the condition.

Now, researchers at the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute -- including ISyE Professor Chuck Zhang -- are working on a tool that could help cardiologists care for patients with the disease. Using highly detailed imaging from CT scans, engineers are using 3-D printers to make an exact model of an individual patient’s heart valve.

Evren Ozkaya (MSIE 05, Ph.D. 08) has long been fascinated by supply chain management. In this interview he discusses his passion for and interest in supply chains, his motivation for starting a supply chain consulting company, and the future of supply chain management.  

Because food delivery systems in the U.S. are so efficient, they are also potentially excellent bio-weapons delivery systems. A team from ISyE is examining the relationship between the food supply chain and bioterrorism and how to mitigate the risk of a terrorist attack on the U.S. food supply chain.

Today's most pressing problems faced by humanity and our planet are complex, requiring a systems-level perspective, such as that of William W. George Chair and Professor Pinar Keskinocak.
