Dr. CHEN Songlin is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. His research is focused on the design and operations of advanced manufacturing and service systems, with special interest in mass customization, product line design, supply chain coordination and contracting, healthcare services etc. Dr. Chen obtained his Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering & Engineering Management from the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology. Previous to that, he had a Bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering from the National University of Defence Technology in China and a Master degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University in U.S.

  • Interest:
    Manufacturing and Services Systems, Mass Customization, Healthcare services design and operations, 3D printing
  • Projects:
    Light Weight Structure Design and Optimization for 3D Printing
    The advancement of 3D printing technology promises much more freedom to design and fabricate complex and innovative structures. This project aims to develop new design methodologies and tools to facilitate the design of structures that are suitable for 3D printing. One particular focus of the project is to investigate the potential for weight reduction while maintaining structure strength.

    Patient-centered Healthcare Service Delivery
    The current healthcare delivery system operates based on a “mass production” model, which has physicians at its center. Based on the concept of “mass customization”, this project aims to design and develop a healthcare delivery system that caters to individual patients’ medical conditions and personal preferences.
