Simulation @ TU Delft - Systems Engineering group
The research and education of the Systems Engineering Group contributes to supporting problem owners in engineering their business systems and processes by formulating adequate engineering approaches and by developing effective support tools. The search for ways to improve the quality and efficiency of the performance of (groups of) people by means of better coordination, better structuring and improved support in the working space is one of the key issues. Some examples are the design of a luggage handling system at an airport, the development of a system for long-term personnel planning for large professional organizations, the (re) organization of a part of a police organization, the design and control of an underground automated transport system, the design of a collaborative risk management process for the financial industry, the design of a collaborative crisis management process for a harbor, the development of mobile information services on UMTS, and the development of a system to support strategic area planning in a harbor.
Major research clusters within the group include the application of computer simulation (dynamic modeling) and the application of collaboration technologies to support effective collaboration processes. In terms of application domains, the group gives special attention to the opportunities for improving processes through new information and communication technologies in service systems, such as logistics and financial systems. This site focuses mainly on the simulation research.
