Dynamic Facilities Layout and Simulation Modeling Lab

Dynamic Facilities Layout and Simulation Modeling Lab

Our laboratory conducts research in the following areas

  • topological network design
  • facility layout and location
  • stochastic network design and analysis
  • Steiner minimal Trees in 3-dimensions
  • state dependent queueing network analysis and finite buffer queueing network models

Real world applications of our research include

  • the design and layout of manufacturing plants, health care facilities, and many other production and service oriented systems
  • analysis of routing in large transportation networks
  • modeling and evaluation of building and vehicular evacuation in case of emergencies
