Dr. Laila Cure presenting ‘Modeling and Analysis of Contemporary Work Systems’ today

Dr. Laila Cure, a Wichita State assistant professor in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, will present about “Modeling and Analysis of Contemporary Work Systems” at 11 a.m. today, March 11 via Zoom.

This presentation will investigate the dynamics of various types of work systems using statistical modeling techniques. A work system is described as a productive system involving humans executing tasks over a period to meet performance expectations. The definition includes, but is not limited to repetitive systems, which are the basis of state-of-the-art-work analysis methods.

Cure received her Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering at the University of South Florida in 2011. Her research focuses on the use of analytics and mathematical modeling techniques to understand and design operations involving humans interacting with technology in uncertain environments. Cure currently teaches Work Systems, Production Systems, Modeling and Analysis of Manufacturing Systems, and Data Analytics. She is also the faculty advisor for the Wichita State Student Chapter of the Association for Supply Chain Management.
