Dr. Ciarallo

Dr. Ciarallo joined the faculty at Wright State as an assistant professor in March 2003. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering, and Engineering & Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University in 1986. He received both his M.S. in Manufacturing & Operations Systems (1988) and his Ph.D. in Industrial Administration (1993) from the Graduate School of Industrial Administration at Carnegie Mellon. Previously, Dr. Ciarallo has been on the faculty of Systems & Industrial Engineering at the University of Arizona, as well as a visiting professor at the University of California - Berkeley, in the Haas School of Business.

Dr. Ciarallo's teaching experience includes courses in production & inventory control, manufacturing systems modeling, operations management, simulation modeling & analysis, probability & statistics, and data structures & algorithms. He received the "Excellence at the Student Interface Award" by the vote of students in Systems & Industrial Engineering at the University of Arizona in four different years.

Dr Ciarallo's recent research interests include: production planning and inventory control in systems with process uncertainty, optimization and uncertainty in inspection planning, agent based performance analysis for distributed simulations, coordinated ramp metering for freeway traffic management, simulation modeling of complex systems, and perturbation analysis derivative estimates for traffic management. His publications have appeared in journals including Management Science, IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation, IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, International Journal of Production Research, Journal of Robotic Systems, and Robotics & Computer-Aided Manufacturing. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Arizona Department of Transportation, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He has served as a referee for journals including Management Science, Operations Research, International Journal of Production Research, IIE Transactions, Journal of Production and Operations Management, International Journal of Production Economics, European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Flexible Manufacturing Systems, and IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing.

Dr. Ciarallo is an active member of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He has served as the newsletter editor, webmaster and listserv moderator for the Manufacturing & Service Operations Management Society (MSOM) of INFORMS for many years, and received the Society's Distinguished Service Award in 2000.
