Discrete Event Systems

Discrete Event Systems (DES) is a rapidly growing engineering field as a result of computer revolution. DES are typically processes associated with the systems which are discrete (in time and space), asynchronous (event-driven rather than clock driven), and nondeterministic. Such examples include manufacturing systems, computer networks, and air traffic control systems, etc. The application area being researched at Rowan ECE is modeling, design and optimization of reconfigurable manufacturing and de-manufacturing systems.
