In today's global economy, the most successful engineering managers rely on a combination of technical skills and business principles. Industrial and systems engineering (ISE) aims at imparting fundamental knowledge to develop the ability to address complex industrial issues, highlighting how to design, run, control and optimise production systems. IJISE addresses the development of ISE principles, tools, systems and methods with special emphasis on the applications of ISE techniques and tools in improving organisational productivity and competitiveness in global markets.


 Topics covered include

  • Engineering economic analysis
  • Computer methods for engineering
  • Engineering experimental design
  • CIMS, robotics and automation
  • Quality engineering, environment risk analysis
  • Systems reliability engineering, maintenance analysis
  • Human factors/ergonomics in design
  • Simulation modelling/analysis
  • System design and control systems, concurrent engineering
  • Production systems analysis/design
  • Facilities layout/design
  • Financial/investment engineering
  • Information systems, ICT, AI/expert systems design
  • Project management, decision support systems
  • Technology management/transfer

More on this journal...

The main objective of IJISE is to provide a platform for interaction between researchers and practitioners who are dealing with ISE theory and applications. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of ISE. A systems perspective is emphasised with the objective of developing new industrial engineering concepts and technologies to meet the needs of organisational changes in the global e-markets. IJISE will provide executives and academics with the state of the art of ISE theory and applications. It aims to facilitate the exchange of information on the advances in ISE among researchers and practitioners.


IJISE acts as a vehicle to help professionals, academics and researchers working in the field of ISE to disseminate information and latest developments and to learn from each other’s research.


IJISE publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, book reviews, and notes. Special Issues devoted to important topics in ISE will occasionally be published.
