Abstract or Description

The purpose of this paper is to highlight new and creative research in a variety of disciplines- especially decision sciences-that help determine when, where, what type and by what means affordable housing and sustainable communities might be built, redeveloped and maintained. As a prelude, it is useful to draw a link between housing planning and supply chain management, the theme of the Frontiers of Engineering session in which this paper appears.
