GMAP | UNISINOS - Research Group on Modeling for Learning - works developing applied research to complex problems. To do it, we work in various areas of knowledge related to Production Engineering and Operations Research (Hard and Soft).
As a Group of Applied Research, we work on two fronts:
Research: Eventually, what we discover, create or improve solving real problems end up contributing to the advancement of existing science in these areas. Learn more about this aspect of our work in the Rearch section.
Education: We also share what we have learned in Undergraduate, Graduate and Post Graduate programs related Production and Operations Management.
Our research delivers results to great companies, government institutions and finally to the whole society. Learn more about our work in partnership with these institutions.
Our vision is defined as follows:
"Being recognized as a national and international reference in the applied research to modeling approach to learning in complex situations."
It means that, by promoting applied research projects using modeling approaches, especially those suitable for complex situations (such as Systems Thinking), we will be contributing to the advancement of both the society and the advancement of science itself.
Thus, "being a recognized research group" is not our goal, but the way which the achievement of the purpose becomes evident.
The GMAP | UNISINOS operates mainly in the development of research projects. Research projects may have different goals, but even then, they use the same group of skills and techniques of the domain of GMAP | UNISINOS.
Exemplifying, the GMAP uses Systems Thinking in projects of social and economic impact, as assistance in the definition of avenues for sustainable development of cities, to the achievement of strategic objectives of our companies.
We believe that applied research to the relevant problems of our society can make a difference in our country. Our work is guided in punctuality and excellence, while we maintain a partnership relationship with our clients. As Goldratt would say: "It is always possible to achieve a win-win solution."
