Welcome to CaRSEM!


We are the Change and Reliable Systems Engineering and Management research group


Our Focus: Integration of systems science into industrial and systems engineering; engineering of organization cultures; systemology; engineering management

Our Objective: To develop fundamental understanding of how to engineer and manage systemic change in organizations by combining engineering management, industrial engineering, and systems science. We work with Oregon’s industry, state agencies, the National Science Foundation, and other professional societies to determine systemic principles that guide the design, assimilation, and management of the systems engineering process, as well as continuous process improvement approaches such as Lean and Six Sigma.

 Our Impcat: With over $2M in grant support we are making important contributions to Oregon Industry, state agencies and the NSF, we have produced over 50 peer reviewed publications and are active participants in the systems science, systems engineering, and engineering management communities.
