Department of Operational Sciences
About the Department
Summer interns in the Department of Operational Sciences work on projects related to operations research and operations analysis.
- Modeling Behavior
This project is part of a long-term effort to model elements of behavior and influence. Intern effort will involve literature search, web search, aiding in the design and running of some statistical analysis in conjunction with graduate students and project leader, and other modeling activities. The ideal candidate would have some quantitative background with studies in psychology, the social sciences, human or organizational behavior, or marketing research at the graduate or undergraduate levels. A willingness to learn and participate is the essential ingredient.
Dick Deckro, Ph.D.
- Technical Editing
This project is an ongoing effort to improve the quality and timeliness of written documentation supporting the wide range of sponsored research topics in the Department of Operational Sciences. Intern effort will involve work with various ENS faculty members in reviewing and editing research reports, articles, presentations, etc. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in technical writing and familiarity with Word and PowerPoint and any associated editing tools in these packages. In addition, the candidate should be able to communicate clearly and willing to discuss their comments with faculty members. A willingness to learn and participate is the essential ingredient.
J.O. Miller, Ph.D.
- Master Air Attack Plan (MAAP) Automation
This research will target the Command and Control Battlelab at Hurlburt Field. The battlelab supports the MAAP process of the Air Operations Center (AOC). The MAAP process tries to identify the assignment and scheduling of resources to an Air Tasking Order (ATO) to achieve desired goals. This research will provide the battlelab with an initial capability to quickly generate assignments and schedules. Currently the battlelab is funding research with AFIT's Electrical & Computer Engineering Department to create a GUI that will allow them to interact with any algorithm that generates assignments and schedules.
