IISE is the world’s largest professional society dedicated solely to the support of the industrial and systems engineering profession and individuals involved with improving quality and productivity. Founded in 1948, IISE is an international, nonprofit association that provides leadership for the application, education, training, research and development of industrial and systems engineering. Industrial and systems engineers focus on continuous quality and process improvement to achieve better products, services and profits. They work in a wide array of professional areas, including management, logistics, manufacturing, health systems and ergonomics, and they influence policy and implementation regarding topics like sustainability, innovation and Six Sigma.
