Welcome to the Society for Engineering and Management Systems

The Society for Engineering and Management Systems is for current and aspiring engineering managers and management researchers who lead by example – and not just from the boardroom. Many spend their time on the shop floor, in distribution centers, in RFID laboratories and in benchmarking sessions around the world. SEMS is for those who focus continually on improving productivity and quality through effective and economical managerial techniques and philosophies.

Julie Dryzmalski“SEMS has afforded me the opportunity to meet other systems thinking professionals globally. As an academic it helps me to stay connected to the practitioner side, understand their needs to help inform and guide my own teaching and research. Being active in the Society and helping to shape its future direction is rewarding and exciting as we try to determine what the future of engineering management systems looks like and how we can provide the tools they need to be resilient, robust and successful.”
