The Laboratory for Intelligent Systems and Analytics (LISA) has been an integral part of the Industrial Engineering Department since 1987. Originally founded by Dr. Kumara, Joint Professor in Industrial Engineering and Computer Science, LISA (formerly called IDDRL: Intelligent Design and Diagnostics Research Laboratory) has grown to be an interdisciplinary laboratory that spans many academic departments. The mission of the LISA is to advance the lab into the wireless world and allow students to be able to connect to the network using point and connect services.

The LISA’s research objectives include:

  • Bringing together research on intelligent systems and statistics-based methods for monitoring, diagnosing, and controlling system/process behavior/quality
  • Conducting research on theoretical and applied aspects of information technology as applied to internet and e-manufacturing
  • Conducting research on nonlinear dynamics in behavior evolution in multi-agent systems in logistics
