SUMMARY
Dr. Terpenny’s research interests are at the intersection of engineering design and information technology with the
primary goal to revolutionize how engineered products and systems are conceptualized and configured. Integral to
this goal is research impinging information and knowledge sharing in collaborative distributed environments and
solution synthesis methods to automate and speed the consideration of design concepts in light of life-cycle
considerations. This has included investigating design process and methodology, domain-neutral and interoperable
formats for information and knowledge sharing via the Internet, a function-based customer-driven design paradigm,
and synthesis methods utilizing genetic programming and learning. Dr. Terpenny has prior industrial experience at
General Electric (GE) where she completed a two-year corporate training program in information systems and
received a management recognition award for outstanding performance. Prior to joining Virginia Tech, Dr.
Terpenny was an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts, where she was the site director of the NSF
Center for e-Design, a multi-university National Science Foundation industry-university cooperative research
center. She has been the principal or co-principal investigator on more than $5 million in contracts and grants. She
has been a leader in increasing information technology and industry participation in research and in engineering
education. She has published 2 book chapters, and 48 peer reviewed journal and conference proceedings. She has
served on numerous review panels for NSF in engineering, education, and small business. She has been a reviewer
for 11 journals and numerous conferences related to engineering and engineering education, and an invited
participant of several NSF workshops. She has supervised 4 Ph.D. students and 9 M.S. students and has been
active in programs and research to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities in engineering.

Synergistic Activities
Technology Development and Transfer: Rensselaer’s Scientific Computation Research Center
(SCOREC) has a long history of developing and transferring advanced automated, adaptive
and parallel simulation technologies to industry and government laboratories. Forty two com-
panies have supported work in the development of automated adaptive finite element software.
Several of them have commercialized the components of technologies developed. SCOREC
graduates have also generated a start-up company, Simmetrix Inc., that is now providing simu-
lation automation software components for simulation-based design that are being used by
CAD, CAE and manufacturing companies.
Educational: Developed three graduate level courses on finite element methods and a project level
interdisciplinary undergraduate/graduate course in computational science.

D. Synergistic Activities
The following examples demonstrate the impact of Dr. Gupta’s professional and scholarly activities:
1. Dr. Gupta has played a leadership role in organizing conferences in the area of computer-aided design
and manufacturing. He has served as Papers Chair in 1999 ASME Design for Manufacturing
Conference, Exhibit Chair in 2000 ASME Design Engineering Technical Conferences, Program Chair
in 2002 ASME Design for Manufacturing Conference, and Conference Chair in 2003 ASME Design
for Manufacturing Conference.
2. Dr. Gupta is the vice-chair of the Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Technical Committee of ASME’s
Design Division. As a member of this technical committee he plays a key role in establishing
communication between academia and industry and identifying actions that need to take place to
transfer DFM knowledge to industry.
3. Dr. Gupta is participating in a mentorship program called ESTEEM (Engineering Science and
Technology to Energize and Expand Young Minds). The goal of this program is to expose high
school students to research in the university laboratories by giving them well-defined research
projects. Last year, he mentored a student who learned CNC machining and machined simple molds
to study dimensional accuracy of interfaces in bi-material objects.
4. Dr. Gupta has developed a new undergraduate course titled Manufacturing Automation. This course
covers fundamentals underlying contemporary manufacturing automation technologies. Two aspects
of manufacturing automation are emphasized: (1) computer-based systems for automating and
controlling manufacturing processes such as numerically controlled machines, industrial robots, rapid
prototyping machines, coordinate measurement machines, and programmable logic controllers; and
(2) the use of software in facilitating information exchange between different components of
manufacturing decision support systems.
5. Dr. Gupta has participated in the development of a generative process planning system that reduces
the process planning time for a typical sheet metal part from several hours to few minutes. This
planner has been successfully tested with more than one thousand industry parts and is being used in
a number of sheet metal job shops. He has received a patent (U.S. Patent 6,233,538) on the setup-
planning algorithm developed as a part of this project. He also received SME's Robert W. Galvin
Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award in 2001 for his contributions to this project. He
has also received Young Investigator Award from the Office of Naval Research in 2000, CAREER
Award from NSF in 2001, and Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists an Engineers
(PECASE) in 2001 to carry out further research in computer aided manufacturing area.

Dr. Shooter is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Bucknell University where he has
taught since 1995. At Bucknell he teaches the capstone senior design course, mechanical design, and
mechatronics. His research interests involve information management for design and the design of
mechatronic systems and products. Integral to this research is the exploration of approaches for the
capture, storage and retrieval of product development information. He is a registered Professional
Engineer in the state of Pennsylvania and has been the PI on numerous projects with industry
involving new product development and the design of production infrastructure. During the summer
of 1997 and the year of 1998/99 he was a research faculty fellow at the National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) in the Design Engineering Technologies Group where he developed
knowledge-based protocols for a multi-university-based project called the Open Assembly Design
Environment. Prior to graduate study he was a Process Engineer for Sony Corporation where he
contributed to the start-up of their first compact disc manufacturing plant. He has consulted
extensively with the Pennsylvania Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to assist
entrepreneurs with new product development enterprises. He developed and implemented an award-
