The Systems and Management research group (S&M RG) aims to contribute to improving the evaluation and decision-making processes as to the design, management and operation of complex systems through the development and application of state-of-the-art concepts, methods and techniques from the Operational Research and Management Science fields, including also the areas of building information modeling, information systems and sustainability and construction management.
