Industry Faculty Research Forum slated - SDM Pulse, Fall 2007

On November 8, 2007, MIT’s System Design and Management and Leaders for Manufacturing programs will hold a daylong session for companies interested in establishing or deepening their involvement with SDM and LFM.

The purpose of the Industry Faculty Research Forum is to match up industry and faculty research interests as well as to develop structured internships for LFM students and thesis projects for SDM students.

Featured speakers will include Professor of the Practice Debbie Nightingale of aeronautics and astronautics (aero/astro) and engineering systems; research associate Eric Rebentisch of the Center for Technology, Policy and Industrial Development and the Lean Aerospace Initiative; Associate Professor Olivier de Weck of aero/astro and engineering systems; Professor Roy Welsch, director of the Center for Computational Research in Economics and Management Science; Stephen Graves, the Abraham Siegel professor of management; and Warren Seering, the Weber-Shaughness professor of mechanical engineering and engineering systems and the engineering codirector of SDM and LFM.

Breakout session topics will include call center operations optimization, global supply chain modeling, strategic sourcing, product platforms, and lean assessment process and tools.

The meeting will be held at the MIT Faculty Club, and lunch will be served.
