Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) has awarded $1.4 million in project funding to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as part of its first round of funding to strengthen U.S. manufacturing. ARM selected projects that will generate timely impact on the national manufacturing landscape and serve as examples of ARM’s mission.
ISE News and Events
Jennifer Pazour, assistant professor of industrial and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering’s 24th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) symposium. The symposium will take place Sept. 5-7 at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Massachusetts.
On March 28, 2018 Alpha Pi Mu, the Honors Society of Industrial Engineers, hosted a trip to Price Chopper's distribution center located in Schenectady, Ny. Mr John Ahl, Inventory Control Summary Supervisor and Katie Kanai '18 held a discussion about distribution services, inventory management, transportation, and industry specific challenges that Price Chopper faces. This was then followed by a tour of the distribution facilities, including inbound and outbound docks, storage racks, and picking systems. They also addressed specific challenges in floral and produce shipments.
Jennifer Pazour honored as recipients of the 2018 Johnson & Johnson WiSTEM2D Scholar Award represent the caliber of talent that we believe is essential to global innovation today and in future. The Award program, and its distinguished Advisory Board, is part of our company’s commitment to help increase the participation of women in STEM2D fields worldwide,” said Kathy Wengel, Worldwide Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer, Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain and WiSTEM2D Program Executive Sponsor.
March issue of ISE Magazine features the recent research of the ISE PhD student N. Orkun Baycik and his dissertation advisor Dr. Thomas Sharkey
Their paper “Interdicting Layered Physical and Information Flow Networks” co-authored with Dr. Chase Rainwater from the University of Arkansas will appear in the April issue of IISE Transactions. This study focuses on an interdiction problem on two interdependent networks. They reformulate this problem using duality and apply this technique to law enforcement efforts against illegal drug trafficking, and cyber-based vulnerability analysis of supply chain networks and infrastructure systems.
