Stevens Institute of Technology professor Jose Emmanuel Ramirez-Marquez was named associate editor of IISE Transactions, the flagship peer-reviewed journal of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE). Widely regarded as a leading publication of interest to industrial and systems engineers, IISE Transactions covers wide-ranging topics in the areas of design and manufacturing, operations engineering and analytics, quality and reliability engineering, and scheduling and logistics.

“This is an exciting time for the journal which enters its 48th year, and with a new name,” says Dr. Ramirez-Marquez, who is also the director of the Enterprise Science and Engineering Division at the Stevens School of Systems and Enterprises (SSE). “I’ve been a member of the IISE community of researchers for over 15 years, and I look forward to the opportunity to further move our science ahead by helping to showcase high quality research focused on solving real engineering problems.”

The journal, which encourages research to solve complex engineering problems across multiple domains aligns well with the core research areas at SSE. Originally founded in 1969 as AIIE Transactions, the journal was known as IIE Transactions from 1983 – 2016. The name of the journal has recently changed to reflect the name of the organization, which was recently changed from the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) to the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE).

During his three-year term as associate editor for IISE Transactions, Ramirez-Marquez will oversee the review process for the focus issue on quality and reliability engineering. Prior to this appointment, he served a two year term as President Elect of the Quality Control and Reliability division board of the Institute of Industrial Engineers.

As a member of the research faculty at SSE, Dr. Ramirez-Marquez focuses his research on the development of mathematical models for analysis and design of resilient systems. His recent work explores how data visualization can be used to understand community based behavior/risk and improve decision-making. As associate editor of a nationally recognized journal, Ramirez will further enhance Stevens’ voice in matters related to quality and reliability engineering.
