The Health Systems Engineering (HSE) Laboratory provides resources and expertise for the design analysis, and improvement of healthcare systems.
In particular, the HSE lab supports teaching and research activities led by Industrial, Systems, and Manufacturing Engineering students and faculty involving:
- operations analysis, standardization and improvement,
- optimization of resource planning and allocation decisions,
- data analytics,
- and model-based support for complex decision making.
Analytical tools employed include statistical data analysis, data mining techniques, design and analysis of experiments, digital simulation, and mathematical programming. The HSE lab also supports data collection and analysis efforts involving work measurement (time studies, work sampling), capacity assessment, and process mapping and standardization in a variety of settings.
