Industrial Engineering and Management Conference

Posted Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Register for the Industrial Engineering and Management Conference under the theme, Striving for Performance Excellence with Quality Management and IEM Practices.

The conference features Keynote speakers: Mr. Ernest Ashley Taylor, CEO PLIPDECO (Day 1) and Dr. Damian St. Jude Graham, CEO, Urban Development Company, Jamaica.

The conference takes place December 7 and 8 at the Faculty of Engineering, Ken Julien Building (Block 1) Room 101 as follows:

  • Friday December 7 | 8am to 8pm
  • Saturday December 8 | 8am to 6pm   


Industrial Engineering has contributed to performance excellence in all sectors within developed and rapidly developing countries but it is not well known or understood in the rest of the developing world, including this region.

This conference seeks to highlight the potential role of Industrial Engineering in managing and overcoming many challenges faced by Public and Private Sector entities within the region.


  • Building awareness of the field of Industrial Engineering
  • Presenting academic and industry-based research
  • Proposing solutions to problems faced in different sectors within the region
  • Highlighting the work of Industrial Engineering professionals
  • Stressing the importance of quality in business, engineering and public service


This event has the potential to change the way the members of the audience think about performance excellence and productivity. In financially challenging environments, it aims to show that industrial engineering ‘systems’ may be the lowest cost and least destructive means of sustainable enterprise and institutions. The messages and follow-up action can potentially impact a wide range of industries, individuals and jobs.

Target Market

  • Public service officials from all ministries
  • Private sector (manufacturing, banking, process industries, industrial services, retail, fast food franchises)
  • University community from UWI and other institutions, regionally
