The Workshop was Successfully Held at ASME IDETC/CIE 2017

We organized a workshop titled “Lab Experiments on Individual and Interactive Decision Making in Design” on the ASME IDETC/CIE 2017  on August 5th at Cleveland, OH. The workshop was collaboratively organized with Dr. Jitesh Panchal, Dr. Ilias Bilionis and Dr. Karthik Kanna from Purdue University. Dr. Sha presented three different lab experiments in support of understanding the designers’ behaviors under competition and their decisions-making strategies about information acquisition in engineering systems design. The papers related to research presented in this workshop can be found here and here.

Dr. Sha is Awarded the Best Dissertation of the Year by ASME

Dr. Zhenghui Sha, is selected as the awardee of the prestigious American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) 2017 Best Ph.D. Dissertation of the Year Award for his dissertation entitled “Decision-Centric Foundations for Complex Systems Engineering and Design“.  His PhD is advised by Dr. Jitesh H. Panchal from Purdue University.

The ASME Computers and Information in Engineering (CIE) Division has presented the award in recognition of “a promising young investigator who authored the best Ph.D thesis of the year in the area of computers and information in engineering“. To ensure that it is presented to appropriately qualified recipients and to maintain the prestigious nature of the award it may not be presented every year. The award is presented on the ASME IDETC/CIE 2017.
