Executive summaries of IIE Transactions and IIE Transactions on Healthcare Systems Engineering 

Edited by Ronald Askin and John W. Fowler  

This month we highlight two articles focusing on new approaches in quality and reliability engineering for manufacturing. The first article discusses new approaches to quality improvement in the era of big data, where the data is allowed to tell the story. The second article develops new reliability models for systems with competing failure mechanisms. These articles will appear in the May 2014 issue of IIE Transactions (Volume 46, No. 5).
