CELDi symposium connects industry, industrial engineering faculty, students
Industry leaders, faculty from several universities and industrial engineering students last week discussed supply chain issues, presented research and learned about ways they can help one another. The annual Center for Excellence in Logistics and Distribution (CELDi) Research Symposium brought about 45 attendees to Mizzou.
Noble Selected Chair for Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering
Professor James Noble has been named chair for the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE). His duties as chair began Oct. 1, 2020, although he had served as interim chair since March 2020.
CELDi Symposium Goes Virtual
As the University of Missouri campuses began preparations to move to remote teaching and telework in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Professor Jim Noble in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) was preparing for the Center for Excellence in Logistics and Distribution (CELDi) spring meeting and research symposium. Noble is the MU site director of CELDi, a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center.
IISE recognizes MU Engineering’s Noble for stellar career
The Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, like many professional engineering organizations, recognizes its top members by naming them fellows. IISE fellows are elected for making “significant, nationally recognized contributions to industrial and systems engineering.” Jim Noble fits the bill to a T, and that’s why the MU Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Professor earned one of IISE’s loftiest titles this year.
