of operations management and production planning/control. This course will cover analysis and understanding of forecasting, aggregate planning, operations strategy, capacity planning, supply-chain management, just-in-time systems, lean manufacturing, agile manufacturing, materials requirement planning, inventory management, and scheduling and sequencing. Prerequisites: IE 320 and IE 350 3 credits IE 430 Lean Systems Students will learn Lean concepts and contrast them with traditional mass production and service methodologies. It also provides the students with a basic framework for performing analysis on existing systems. Students will also develop facilities planning and layout skills, including the ability to apply quantitative methods to decision-making in the areas of selecting, preparing, presenting, and implementing facilities plans. These skills have broad applications and can be useful for the planning and design of a manufacturing enterprise, hospital, airport, warehouse/distribution center, etc. Prerequisites: IE 410 3 credits IE 440: Lean Systems II The purpose of this course is to teach the student the key methods for implementation of Lean and allow the student to practice using the methods. The focus will be on understanding and using these methods as practiced in industry and health care. 3 credits IE 450: Simulation In this course, the student will develop an understanding and need for simulation in practice. The course will focus on basic and advanced concepts in simulation including comparing the simulated results with analytical results, and successfully develop simulation models useful in production/manufacturing, supply chains, transportation, and other areas related to Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Simulation package such as ARENA will be integrated and used throughout the course. Prerequisite: IE 350 3 credits IE 455: Operations Research II Stochastic models in operations research; Review of basic probability, discrete time Markov chains; continuous time Markov chains; discrete and continuous phase type distributions; birthand-death processes; elementary queuing models involving Poisson arrivals and exponential service times; advance queuing models; basic concepts in simulation and simulation of various processes. 3 credits IE 465: Healthcare Systems Engineering This course examines the technical structure of the healthcare delivery system and the role that industrial and systems engineering (ISE) plays in its design and improvement. Included will be how healthcare systems work in hospitals, medical offices, clinics and other healthcare organizations. Traditional ISE methods for improving quality, patient safety, and employee productivity and satisfaction will be presented within a systematic application of value chain engineering designed to produce lean processes. 3 credits IE 475: Robotics I This course covers the basic theory and methods of robot operation and programming. The laboratory portion of the course will focus on programming a robot for specific pick and place tasks. 3 credits IE 476: Robotics II This course covers advanced robot programming and movement. Advanced programming in the laboratory will include integration of the robot into a workcell. 3 credits IE 491-496 Special Topics in Industrial Engineering

1 to 3 credits

IE 495: Capstone This course provides the student with the challenge of integrating and synthesizing general engineering knowledge particularly in industrial and manufacturing disciplines, into creatively solving real-world, open-ended problems in a team setting. This requires defining
