Sport vs. Industry "Athletes": Physical Demands and Injury Prevention Methodologies

Presented by Applied Ergonomics Conference Committee - OPEN TO ALL
Nov. 1, 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Brock Anderson, founder and principle consultant, ergo-ology

Industrial professionals turned to Olympic competition and professional sports to redefine the definition of front-line associates. The phrase “industrial athletes” is a description born out of similarities in human performance and the stress-response generated by a physically demanding task. Yet, there are still enormous differences between today’s finely tuned athletes and the broad mix of employees who occupy the workaday world.

The ISE Role in Service Systems Engineering: Service 4.0 Overview, Digital Transformation in Healthcare and Enterprise Shared Service

Presented by Chapter #1, CISE, SHS, SEMS and IAB - OPEN TO ALL
Nov. 6, 12 p.m. Eastern time

Presenters: Vittal Prabhu, Penn State University; Michael Caesar, University Health Network; David Poirier, The Poirier Group and CISE Chair
Moderator: D. Scott Sink, Ph.D., The Ohio State University

Industry 4.0 is a concept that is becoming well socialized and understood. The ISE roles in this ongoing transformation are well established. A similar transformation is occurring in Service Systems. That transformation, which some are calling Service 4.0, is less well understood and for sure the ISE role is much less well defined. The Service Systems Engineering “Community” in IISE has joined forces with Chapter No. 1 and created a series of webinars that will launch on the Nov. 6 and continue into 2019.

Presenter: Arman Sabbaghi, assistant professor, Purdue University

Geometric shape deviation models constitute an important component in quality control for cyber-physical additive manufacturing (AM) systems. However, specified models have a limited scope of application across the vast spectrum of processes in a system that are characterized by different settings of process variables, and the disparate classes of shapes that are of interest for manufacture.
