The Challenge of Industrial Engineering & Operations Management in Building Sustainable Manufacturing & Service Systems

The first IEOM UK International Symposium on Industrial Engineering and Operations Management aims at providing a platform for academics, researchers, scientists and practitioners to exchange ideas to bridge the gap between the Industrial Engineering and Operations Management theory and its application to solve the most current problems and challenges faced by 21st century organisations. Hence, the conference is also expected to foster networking, collaboration and a joint effort among the conference participants to advance the theory and practice as well as to identify major trends in Industrial Engineering and Operations Management. The main focus of the symposium is to explore how the fields of Industrial Engineering and Operations Management may contribute in addressing one of the main challenges that mankind is currently facing; how to achieve sustainable economic and social growth while at the same time reducing environmental degradation, climate change and resources scarcity. The main theme of the symposium is therefore “The Challenge of Industrial Engineering and Operations Management in Building Sustainable Manufacturing and Service Systems”. The first IEOM UK International Symposium on Industrial Engineering and Operations will hence promote knowledge and experience sharing between Industrial Engineering and Operations Management experts to address this challenge.
