Assessing the Sustainment of a Lean Manufacturing Implementation Using System Dynamics Modeling
Dr. Marc Haddad (Assistant Professor, Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering) presented a technical paper at the 2nd European Conference on Industrial Engineering and Operations Management (IEOM). The paper was co-authored with Mr. Rami Otayek, LAU lab instructor and alumni of the Industrial Engineering program, and it addressed the challenge of lean manufacturing sustainment through dynamic modeling based on a case study in the local apparel manufacturing industry. The presentation won the “best paper award for the system dynamics track”. The full paper is available through the IEOM conference proceedings at http://ieomsociety.org/paris2018/proceedings/ and is indexed in Scopus.
