Dr. Kurz's research highlighted by NSF

- Apr 2007

Dr. Mary Beth Kurz, Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering at Clemson, has been the first to harness the new Condor grid at Clemson, using the equivalent of 17 years of computer time in just one week. “Before using the campus grid, I was completely without hope of completing the computational studies my research required,” Dr. Kurz said. “As soon as I saw hundreds of my jobs running on the campus grid, I started sending love notes to the Condor team at Clemson.” Dr. Kurz studies genetic algorithms for large scale optimization in manufacturing and scheduling applications, and the Condor application has enabled her to run hundreds of algorithmic processing jobs to increase the throughput of manufacturers.
