Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor in the Industrial Engineering Technology department at SPSU. I enjoy interacting and helping students learn to become industrial engineers. A bit of background on me, most of my professional life was working as an industrial engineer in many capacities then moved into a combination of engineering and information systems. At Union Carbide I performed classical time studies, calculated savings from employee suggestions, and introduced CAD to the product designers. Later worked for Lockheed-Martin as a computer-aided manufacturing engineer and worked on many exciting projects namely the multi-million dollar Manufacturing Assembly Tracking System project. This was my first real exposure to computer programming and my team designed and implemented this system for the C130 assembly floor (I think its still operating on the F22 program!).
Later I decided to go back to school to get my masters degree at Georgia Tech and ended up working there as a research engineer for several years. Next stop was Oracle corporation and traveled the world demonstrating their manufacturing suite of software products. Had enough of travel and settled in at TSI Logistics, a 3PL company, in a management position as Director of IT development. IT operations, and customer service. Got involved a little in teaching part time at Chattahoochie Tech and decided to teach full time at SPSU in 2008. Went back to school again recently and I'm currently a doctoral student in information systems management.
