• Coordination in Multi-Organization Creative Design Projects 

      Eastman, Charles M.; Hsi, Idris; Potts, Colin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      We are interested in the coordination of design and planning decisions in large, multi-organizational projects and their implications for technology support. These projects are undertaken by goal-driven "virtual organizations", ...
    • Coordination of reactive power scheduling in a multi-area power system operated by independent utilities 

      Phulpin, Yannick Dominique (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-10-22)
      This thesis addresses the problem of reactive power scheduling in a power system with several areas controlled by independent transmission system operators (TSOs). To design a fair method for optimizing the control settings ...
    • Coordination of the dynamics of yeast sphingolipid metabolism during the diauxic shift 

      Alvarez-Vasquez, Fernando; Sims, Kellie J.; Voit, Eberhard O.; Hannun, Yusuf A.: (Georgia Institute of TechnologyBioMed Central, 2007-10)
      Background: The diauxic shift in yeast requires cells to coordinate a complicated response that involves numerous genes and metabolic processes. It is unknown whether responses of this type are mediated in vivo through ...
    • Impact of social and informational faultlines on patterns of trust and coordination in teams 

      Wax, Amy Martha (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04-09)
      Although diversity is often thought to improve team performance by expanding the range of ideas available to the group, reported relationships between team diversity and performance have been somewhat weak (e.g., Bowers, ...
    • Preparing for an Electronic Resources Management System, Part I: Conquering Entropy 

      Hogarth, Margaret (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-03-24)
      Preparing for an ERMS requires extensive planning and coordination of departments, workflow, resources, information, record-keeping systems, and relationships. Clean data, process analysis, and frank evaluation help the ...
    • Proprioceptive Control for a Robotic Vehicle Over Geometric Obstacles 

      Abdallah, Muhammad; Arkin, Ronald C.; Bakkum, Douglas James; Merrill, Ernest; Waldron, Kenneth J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003)
      In this paper we describe a software system built to coordinate an autonomous vehicle with variable configuration ability operating in rough terrain conditions. The paper describes the system architecture, with an emphasis ...
    • Research Coordination by Intermediary Organizations 

      Hessels, Laurens (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-15)
      Recently, many science systems have faced the rise of thematic task forces and national research programmes aiming to coordinate research activities in areas of strategic priority. This paper explores the mechanisms ...
    • Role-Assignment in Multi-Agent Coordination 

      Ji, Meng; Azuma, Shun-ichi; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Information Convergence Technology, 2006-03)
      In this paper we study the problem of parameterized assignment. This problem arises when a team of mobile robots must decide what role to take on in a given planar formation, where the parameters are the rotation and ...
    • Supply Chain Coordination for False Failure Returns (ed.1) 

      Ferguson, Mark E.; Guide, V. Daniel R., Jr.; Souza, Gilvan C. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-09-14)
      False failure returns are products that are returned by consumers to retailers with no functional or cosmetic defect. The cost of a false failure return includes the processing actions of testing, refurbishing if necessary, ...
