Applied Solutions Sessions

The conference program comprises two types of sessions: Applied Solutions, showcasing proven solutions and applications from industry, and the Industrial & Systems Engineering Research Conference (ISERC), featuring research from academia and industry scholars.

The purpose of the Applied Solutions sessions is to present proven solutions from applying industrial and systems engineering principles within industry, healthcare or service companies.

What's new for 2016?

Whether you are a first time attendee or a conference veteran, there are several changes this year intended to make your conference experience even more valuable through a more unified conference. Changes are based on feedback from prior conferences in support of that goal.

Within each industry track we will have multiple conference sessions that range from highly engaging industry panel discussions on current topics to "how-to" sessions related to soft skills for IEs' advancement, as well as others around hard analytical skills. Within all our Applied Solutions sessions, the common theme is to provide value to our professional members by presenting quality presentations to help them be better industrial engineers.

We encourage you to become an active participant within this conference, challenge yourself to look into something different, and expand on your own skills as an industrial engineer. We believe that each of us attending is an industrial engineer for life and by your active attendance, you contribute to the improvement of our profession.
