Organization of Research Activities within the Center
The specific research projects to be undertaken by the Center are selected based on the interests of the faculty members, the needs and opinions of member organizations, and the availability of necessary resources to pursue the project.
Each research project performed within the Center has a focus group composed of representatives from member organizations with interests in the specific project. The mission of the focus group is to provide an industrial perspective on the project, ideas for and assessment of the process of carrying out the project, and, occasionally, additional resources necessary for the project's completion. Regular meetings between the faculty, students, and staff conducting the research and a project's focus group will take place to augment telephone and e-mail dialogue, thus assuring steady progress towards the project goals.
In general, all research results will be made available to all member organizations prior to their being submitted for publication consideration. This provides members with advanced knowledge that can provide them with an advantage over their competitors. Research of a more proprietary nature can be arranged between a single member organization and the Center, but this must be contracted and funded separate from the membership-sponsored activities.
