Applied Solutions Sessions

The conference program comprises two types of sessions: Applied Solutions, showcasing proven solutions and applications from industry, and the Industrial & Systems Engineering Research Conference (ISERC), featuring research from academia and industry scholars.

The purpose of the Applied Solutions sessions is to present proven solutions from applying industrial and systems engineering principles within industry, healthcare or service companies.

Attendees will have the ability to select sessions from a dynamic list of presentations. These talks will include the following tracks:


  • Computer & Information Systems 
  • Construction 
  • Continuous Improvement (Lean & Six Sigma) 
  • Energy Systems 
  • Engineering Economic Analysis 
  • Engineering Education 
  • Engineering Management 
  • Facilities Design & Planning 
  • Healthcare Systems 
  • IE in International 
  • Logistics & Supply Chain 
  • Manufacturing & Engineering Design 
  • Modeling & Simulation 
  • Operations Research 
  • Production Planning & Scheduling 
  • Quality Control & Reliability 
  • Safety, Human Factors & Ergonomics 
  • Service & Work Systems 
  • Systems Engineering & Design 
  • Social, Environmental & Sustainability 

Within each industry track we will have multiple conference sessions that range from highly engaging industry panel discussions on current topics to "how-to" sessions related to soft skills for IEs' advancement, as well as others around hard analytical skills. Within all our Applied Solutions sessions, the common theme is to provide value to our professional members by presenting quality presentations to help them be better industrial engineers.


We encourage you to become an active participant within this conference, challenge yourself to look into something different, and expand on your own skills as an industrial engineer. We believe that each of us attending is an industrial engineer for life and by your active attendance, you contribute to the improvement of our profession.
