The WATMIMS Research Group was formed in 1984 within the Department of Management Sciences at the University of Waterloo.

Our group consists of University of Waterloo graduate students and faculty researchers who conduct research in supply chain, logistics and manufacturing in conjunction with industry partners.

Our research comprises the development and application of tools and techniques to aid in the management of integrated manufacturing and logistics/supply chain systems. We aim to create new knowledge about the design, implementation, operation, and control of these systems, not overlooking the important interfaces with purchasing, transportation, product and process design, inventory management and human resources.
