The Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems & Automation (LMS) is oriented on research and development in cutting edge scientific and technological fields. LMS is involved in a number of research projects funded by the CEU and European industrial partners. Particular emphasis is given to the co-operation with the European industry as well as with a number of "hi-tech" firms. LMS is under the direction and technical coordination of Professor George Chryssolouris. It is organized in three different groups:
- Innovative Manufacturing Processes,
- Advanced Human-Centered Design Techniques, including Virtual Reality, and
- Production Systems Planning, Control and Networking.
