Transformative Results

 

CCALS’ Applied Research Focus

At CCALS, industry and world class universities will collaboratively leverage expertise, resources and experience to solve logistics problems with new, breakthrough solutions. Industry will determine the center’s research roadmap, and universities will apply proven capabilities across a range of core logistics functions, including:

  • Large-scale systems and financial engineering.
  • System dependability, reliability, security and trust.
  • Human factors (demographics, workforce, behaviors and processes).
  • Supply chain and risk management.
  • System dependability, reliability, security and trust.
  • Modeling and simulation.
  • Large-data management, integration and analytics.
  • Enterprise systems integration, application and customization.

In all of these areas CCALS focuses on a thorough and practical understanding of the fundamentals, the development of technologies and processes that solve problems of industrial importance, the transfer of the technologies into industrial applications, and the solution of practical problems encountered by industry.

CCALS’ Research Objectives

CCALS is focused on the development of new and advanced solutions that will optimize logistics efficiency, reduce costs and maximize the value of logistics systems. The CCALS applied research evaluates and assesses logistics systems to understand the relationship between process parameters and the interaction between the many subsystems (transportation, technology, human) that make logistics work.
