Imagine if ... solutions were integrated, systemic

The motivation behind this column results from knowledge that industrial and systems engineers have the capability to make the world a more effective, productive and resilient place. As we look to make a difference, applying our natural strengths will allow us to have greater impact. Our experiences in industrial and systems engineering (education and industry) have supplied the context in which we can apply these natural strengths, coupled with our technical and social abilities, to further strengthen our aptitude as leaders in engineering. We have the skills to analyze engineering problems at not only a component level but also at the component-interaction and systemic levels.
