The Center for Business and Industrial Studies (CBIS) encourages and facilitates sponsored research on multi-disciplinary problems. Projects have ranged from the conduct of survey research to the development and implementation of computer based systems for corporate planning and operational control. Through these projects, sponsoring organizations obtain creative insights on managerial problems and new uses of information technology, while students gain valuable experience in working with faculty in actual business settings.
The Supply Chain Risk and Resiliance Research Institute (SCR3) provides research opportunities for faculty and graduate students on projects involving logistics, transportation and supply chain management with public and private agencies. Recent research projects have included network analyses and inventory rationalization studies, transportation pricing and simulation of congested transportation systems.
