The CAVE lab provides students, researchers, and decision makers with a more intuitive understanding of and access to quantitative methods to support strategic design, tactical planning and operational decision problems in the supply chain and logistics domain and related fields. Based on a newly created physical lab space at MIT CTL equipped with state-of-the-art visualization technology, the lab is developing interactive visual interfaces to data and analytical tools, addressing complex supply chain and logistics problems.
Complex data can be difficult to visualize and analyze. Working in cross-functional teams also adds a layer of complexity to making decisions from big data analysis. The CAVE Lab uses interactive visualization to improve data visibility, data analysis, and decision making for supply chain and logistics challenges.
