Prosenjit Bose, professor in the School of Computer Science, has received an Engage Grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). The funding will support Bose’s work with Kinaxis to improve manufacturing analytics.

Supply chains like those managed by Kinaxis software identify and encode the order in which components are needed by businesses. For example, before one can put the roof on a house, the foundation must be laid. Supply chains must also be able to identify components that can be accomplished concurrently, such as painting the walls in several rooms at the same time. This project will increase the efficiency of supply chains by identifying all components that can be completed at the same time.

The grants give Canadian companies access to knowledge, expertise and capabilities at Canadian universities and colleges. These grants foster new research partnerships by supporting short-term research and development projects aimed at addressing a company-specific problem.
