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.

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.

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.

ISyE recently joined forces with Amazon to help shape and develop ISyE’s master’s degree in supply chain engineering. To this end, ISyE, the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute, and Amazon have announced funding of $665,000 from Amazon during the next five years. 

Suriya Arulselvan (MSCE 2015) and Valerie Thomas, a professor in Georgia Tech’s Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE), have been awarded the Judges’ Choice Award for the 2016 Aviation contest from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Climate CoLab.

John Bartholdi III, Craig Tovey, and John Vande Vate, all researchers who hail from Georgia Tech’s No. 1-ranked Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) – are part of an interdisciplinary team that has been designated as recipients of the 2016 Golden Goose Award. The Golden Goose Award honors scientists whose federally funded work may have been considered silly, odd, or obscure when first conducted, but has resulted in significant benefits to society.
