Improving Workflow in an Intensive Care Unit

Jung Hyup Kim, associate professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, is investigating how to help nurses spend more time with patients who need extra care, especially in a hectic ICU environment.

Study: Drivers Experience Four Levels of Attentive ‘Gaze’ in Response to Alerts From Pre-crash Warning Systems

A team of engineers at the University of Missouri conducted open road testing of three collision avoidance systems and demonstrated that a drivers’ visual behavior in response to an alert generated from a collision avoidance system can be divided into one of four different behavioral categories: active gaze, self-conscious gaze, attentive gaze and ignored gaze.

CELDi Symposium Goes Virtual

As the University of Missouri campuses began preparations to move to remote teaching and telework in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Professor Jim Noble in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) was preparing for the Center for Excellence in Logistics and Distribution (CELDi) spring meeting and research symposium. Noble is the MU site director of CELDi, a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center.

Future Engineers choose Mizzou on Decision Day

High school seniors today are making one of the most significant choices of their lives: It’s Decision Day.

MAB students

Student Volunteers Lend a Hand

More than 20 Mizzou Engineering students sacrificed a portion of their time away from school during the winter break to help others. Students participated in a week-long Mizzou Alternative Breaks (MAB) service trip in early January, prior to the start of the spring semester. Since 1991, Mizzou Alternative Breaks has been sending groups of students on trips around the country to volunteer at various places in need.

Mizzou alumnus honors family with $1.7 million in recent gifts

Today University of Missouri officials announced two gifts from an alumnus and his wife to honor his family’s legacy and long-time support of Missouri’s flagship university. Ken Donohew, a 1967 industrial engineering graduate, and his wife, Ellen Kippel, recently gave $1.7 million, bringing his lifetime giving to more than $3 million.

Engineering, Business partner on Supply Chain Management graduate certificate

Mizzou Engineering’s Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department and Trulaske College of Business’ Department of Marketing recently teamed up on an undergraduate Global Supply Chain Management certificate. Now, they’re expanding it to the graduate level.

Mizzou research aims to improve driver alerts through science

If researchers can predict how drivers will react, they can better tailor systems either broadly or potentially to individual motorists. Mizzou Engineering Assistant Professor Jung Hyup Kim’s research opens the door to potentially creating a more interactive system.

Quick eyes can show level of situational awareness, MU study shows

Oil refinery safety technicians, air traffic controllers, security guards, TSA agents, nuclear power plant safety techs — these jobs and more are key to our safety. And all require the ability to monitor loads of information and adjust to any abnormal signals, which makes understanding their awareness and effectiveness in real time critical to public safety. Mizzou Engineering’s Jung Hyup Kim just discovered a way to do just that.
