Engineering Design and System Engineering

The Engineering Design and Systems Engineering (EDSE) program supports fundamental research into the basic processes and phenomena of engineering design and systems engineering.

The program seeks proposals leading to improved understanding about how processes, organizational structure, social

interactions, strategic decision making, and other factors impact success in the planning and execution of engineering design and systems engineering projects.

It also supports advances pertaining to engineering design and systems engineering in areas that include, but are not limited to, decision making under uncertainty, including preference and demand modeling; problem decomposition and decision delegation; applications of reverse game theory (mechanism design); computer-aided design; design representation; system performance modeling and prediction; design optimization; uncertainty quantification; domain- or concern-specific design methods; and advanced computational techniques for supporting effective human cognition, decision making, and collaboration.

Competitive proposals for novel methods will include a plan to evaluate rigorously the effectiveness and performance of the proposed approach.

The EDSE program encourages multidisciplinary collaborations of experts in design and systems engineering with experts in other domains.

Of particular interest is research on the design of engineering material systems that leverages the unique aspects of a particular material system to realize advanced design methods that are driven by performance metrics and incorporate processing/manufacturing considerations.

The EDSE program does not support the development of ad-hoc approaches that lack grounding in theory, nor does it support design activities that do not advance scientific knowledge about engineering design or systems engineering.

Prospective investigators are encouraged to discuss research ideas and project scope with the Program Director in advance of proposal preparation and submission.
