Modeling, Analysis and Performance Improvement of Intelligent Manufacturing and Service Industries Systems

Dr. Radu Babiceanu joined Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in August 2013 as an Associate Professor of Systems Engineering in the Department of Electrical, Computer, Software, and Systems Engineering. Dr. Babiceanu received his Ph.D. degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech in 2005, specializing in modeling, analysis and performance improvement of intelligent manufacturing and service industries systems.

Dr. Babiceanu teaches systems and software engineering courses, such as requirements engineering, decision and risk analysis, quality assurance, and project management. One of his teaching objectives is to familiarize students with systems thinking and systems engineering methods for solving real-world engineering problems.

Dr. Babiceanu’s research provides a systems engineering approach to modeling, operation, and performance improvement of large-scale complex systems, such as supply chain, transportation, and aviation and airport service industry systems. His work addresses the requirements, architecture, integration, and evaluation of systems, considering their lifecycle effectiveness and sustainability characteristics using methodologies such as systems analysis, engineering optimization, discrete-event and continuous simulation, computational intelligence techniques, and multi-agent systems.
