Yu Awarded Research Grant on Engineering Supply Chain Systems
January 20, 2009
EMIS faculty member Dr. Junfang Yu recently received the following $85,000 research grant from Sandia National Laboratories:
Collaborative Environment Implementation, Data Management and Security in Supply Chain System
This funded research project will help Sandia to design and implement a secure and effective Electronic Component Information System (ECIS) which is being used by design and development engineers, and other personnel along their supply chain in a collaborative environment. The scope of the work includes the design and implementation of the control mechanism and management schema for the engineering release of various designs and subsystems to be used in a complex weapon system. The project will also help Sandia to design and implement their ECIS so it could be used in a secure and collaborative way.
