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
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.

A framework for weighing up innovation
20 June, 2023
Research in the International Journal of Industrial and Systems Engineering, offers a new approach to evaluating and classifying innovative ideas within a company. The work introduces an ontology, a conceptual framework, for defining and measuring how radical a new idea is so that decision-makers within the company can assess its potential impact and push the company down a particular road rather than an alternative. Earlier researchers have grappled with how to identify and evaluate radically new ideas with an innovating company. Obviously, it is impossible to test all possible ideas. Previous discussions often revolved around assessing the level of risk or waiting until the effects of an innovation could be quantified. However, these approaches have proven to be limited in their effectiveness. Objective probabilities are frequently unavailable for radical ideas, rendering risk assessment inadequate. Additionally, relying on retrospective assessment of outcomes does not aid decision-making in the early stages of idea selection. Andrew N. Forde and Mark S. Fox of the Department of Industrial and Information Engineering at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, have found a way to address the shortcomings of earlier approaches. They have a fresh perspective that treats radical ideas as uncertainties and then employs subjective probabilities in the process of making a decision about whether a given idea should be taken further. This approach acknowledges that different decision-makers may hold varying beliefs about the potential outcomes of an idea, making probabilistic assessments subjective [...]More details...
