IISE Work Systems (ws) division student video competition

Sponsored by the IISE Work Systems Division


As the demands of industry to deliver both efficiency and effectiveness climb to new levels, Time is the new currency.  Work Measurement (WM) is a fundamental building block that enables IE’s to understand time and build solutions that optimize around it. To help rebuild awareness and reinforce the importance of WM, the Work Systems Division has launched a campaign labeled It’s All About Time.  To help raise the “fun level”, we would like to engage students within the Work Systems Division in a video competition to creatively share the importance of WM and show how it has evolved via new technologies and processes. This is an opportunity to show your creativity and be a part of something bigger! In the process, you will also be rewarded with national exposure while expanding your network within the IISE.


Streaming video published onto “YouTube” that complies with fair use of copyrighted materials guidelines in the English language or with English sub-titles.


6 minutes maximum; 3 minutes minimum.


Create a video presentation which shares the importance of Work Measurement and shows how new technologies and processes have redefined how it can be leveraged.
