Florida Tech Students Win Engineering Management Paper Awards

– Two graduate-student teams from the Florida Tech Engineering Systems Department have won student paper awards from the Space Coast chapter of the
American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS) Educational and Research Foundation. Members of Team 1 were Chris Guodace, Mehul Shah and Jin
Ling. Team 2 members were Chris Bursk, Kurt Ernst and Jason Natwick.
Team 1 took first place and Team 2 won the second place award. They both advanced to the Southeast Regional Competition of the Donald W. Fogarty
International Student Paper Competition (ISPC).
Both winning APICS papers were a culmination of term projects from Florida Tech engineering management courses taught by Dr. Muzaffar Shaikh, professor and
head of the Florida Tech Engineering Systems Department. Team 1 applied statistical process control in a study of check-out time at large retail stores.
Team 2 used sound quality engineering data collection and analysis techniques to examine the on-time performance metric of an airline company.
The APICS Educational and Research Foundation, Inc., based in Alexandria, Va., supports and encourages the development and dissemination of knowledge in
