Under Dr. Subrahmanian's direction, the n-dim group is interested in designing information systems that support the social processes that are integral to design. The group studies engineering work processes in order to create methods for managing knowledge in engineering design. They consider an understanding of work processes to be an integral part of system's development. In order to analyze work processes the n-dim group has researched and developed methods for studying the flow and use of information in design organizations. They then use an evolutionary prototyping method build and test design applications that support engineering knowledge management.

Dr. Subrahmanian co-authored a book titled, "Information and Communication Technology for Sustainable Development: Defining a Global Research Agenda with Dr. Rahul Tongia and Prof. V.S. Arunachalam." The book is available at:
