About Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering at University of Windsor

MAME invites applications for a multi-disciplinary PhD in the field of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering. Industrial engineering is an integrated discipline that includes the study, management and control of integrated systems of people, machines, and technologies, in order to improve the quality and productivity of the entire system. Industrial engineering includes not only the manufacturing systems themselves, but also the operational research, and human factors (ergonomics: both physical and cognitive). Operational research is involved with developing models, algorithms and optimization; e.g. inventory control & production planning. Information technology is an integration tool.

Identifiable areas of research interest includes:

- Supply Chain Management

- Operational Research

- Operations Management

- Product Design and Manufacture

- Human Factors and Manufacturing Systems Design

- Operation and Control Human

Individual faculty expertise is clustered around focus groups such as those belonging to the Center for Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (IMS), Environmentally Conscious Design and Manufacturing, Ergonomics and Human-Centered Manufacturing, the Manufacturing Systems Modeling and Operational Research.
