Customer Oriented Philosophy
The CTSM’s strength stems from its ability to develop technologies and creatively utilize sophisticated analytical tools to meet a set of objectives for decision situations relating to various systems, such as defense, homeland security, maritime, infrastructure, facility, health, intelligent and equipment systems. The technologies and systems are further defined in the context of many industries. Using a matrix structure of technologies and systems, several primary thrust areas were identified to constitute primary interests and the scope for the center by capitalizing on existing resources, including the University of Maryland at-large.
The products of the CTSM include technical report and papers, and software that increase efficiency and effectiveness, enhance reliability, reduce failure rates, and inform rational decision making for a cost-effective management of risk.
