I’m going to be giving my first championship conference presentation this year on something near and dear to my heart–applying Industrial Engineering principles to the FIRST Robotics Competition. Come check it out in Detroit on Thursday 4/24 at 9:30AM in Cobo 251A if you’re interested!
Here is the abstract:
Industrial Engineering can bring your team to optimum efficiency. This presentation covers applying principles of Industrial Engineering (IE) to FIRST programs, including managing team productivity, continuous process improvement, and best practices for maximizing both the student experience and your team’s competition success.
IE principles covered (with example applications) include:
- Design for Manufacturing
- Design of Experiments
- Six Sigma
- Operations Management
