Assistant Professor of Systems Engineering
Radu Babiceanu is an Assistant Professor of Systems Engineering at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He received his Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech in 2005, specializing in modeling and analysis of manufacturing and service industries systems. Dr. Babiceanu also holds a M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toledo, Ohio, and a B.S. degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania. In terms of innovation achievments, Dr. Babiceanu developed a new manufacturing control architecture designed to specifically work in uncertain dynamic environments. The software implementation of the innovative “Holonic-based control system for automated manufacturing systems” is capable of delivering close to optimal results with the big advantage of its real-time response to any changes in the environemnt. In an another project, Dr. Babiceanu delivered a software implementation of warehousing operations including optimal policies for loading/unloading freight elevetors. Dr. Babiceanu’s research uses systems engineering methodologies and computational intelligence tools for the design and operation of complex systems. Currently, he works on identifying the system architecture and integration requirements and characteristics that lead to an overall improved system lifecycle effectiveness.
