3.6       RESEARCH 

3.6.1    BOOK MANUSCRIPT IN PROGRESS

 

Engineering for Sustainability

Sustainability is the ability to endure. In ecology, sustainability describes how biological systems survive. For humans, it is our long-term wellbeing. For mechanical systems and structures, it is conserving required resources and reducing waste. For an enterprise, it is the ability of its products and systems to remain productive long term, without failure and minimizing waste. Sustainability and sustainable development has become a popular goal. It has also become a wide-ranging term that can be applied on a local or a global scale and over long time periods. The proposed third volume is intended to focus on the principles of sustainable engineering. The intent is to address the important question: how does one engineer a system for sustainability. It is the third book in the series on sustainability.

3.6.2    RESEARCH IN PROGRESS

 

1  

Very Light Jets (VLJs)

 

VLJs are radically new concept jets costing around $1.5 million. They have spawned a series of entrepreneurial start-up airlines flying 1-4 passengers on-demand point-to-point from small airports for about the cost of a full-fare coach or first class ticket. The problem is to find an optimal routing and scheduling of aircraft to satisfy the customer demands (as defined by a desired departure and arrival time window). This problem has never specifically been solved, except for the ground transportation “dial-a-ride” problem. I have developed a minimum cost optimization algorithm and coded it on a computer. It is under test and evaluation by two airlines.

Sustainability

 

This research project entails the development of strategies, principles, approaches, and technologies necessary to effectively and efficiently sustain an enterprise and its products.  Sustainment is defined here as the means by which an enterprise is enduring. It also is defined as the maintenance, repair and/or overhaul practices that keep systems (the products of the enterprise) operating and up-to-date (new technology upgrades) throughout their entire life cycles. The research focuses on the tools that management, product development, and operational support teams should consider in the design, development, operation, and improvement of their products that are cost-effective in all phases of the product’s life cycle: from cradle to grave. The goal is to minimize non-value-added activities throughout the entire sustainment enterprise.
