Lab. for Manufacturing Systems & Automation (LMS)
Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering
Research Activity
Production Systems Planning, Control and Networking, Design of Manufacturing Systems, Supply Chain Management
LMS interest is focused on the development, software implementation and use of advanced tools based on Artificial Intelligence methods for production systems planning & control and for the development of intelligent Internet-based applications addressing the enterprise-wide business activities. Specific fields involve:

- Real-time manufacturing scheduling and production planning
- Flexibility in manufacturing systems
- Chaos and Time Series Analysis in manufacturing systems
- E-business and E-work applications
- Supply Chain Management
- Model-based quality control procedures
Research Infrastructure
In the area of Software Development, LMS currently uses various tools for software development in Windows and Unix platforms, including: MS Visual C++ and Java, MS Visual Basic, Symantec Visual Cafe for Java, Rational Rose, Rational Purify, MS SQL Server and ORACLE, Sybase Anywhere Client/Server, OpenIngres Client/Server, OpenRoad/4GL, Division Mockup 2000 i2 and Division Safework for development of virtual reality applications.
