Student Team Takes 2nd at CICMHE Competition

Primary tabs

Three students from the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) were recently recognized by the College Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) in its student design competition.

The team was comprised of ISyE seniors Natasha Jain and Matt Knepper as well as visiting graduate student Chang Peng Shen. Chen Zhou, Associate Professor and Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies advised the student team. The team received the second place prize in the competition, winning a cash prize of $1000 in addition to a $500 prize for the Stewart School.

The students for the 2007-2008 competition tackled the problem of designing a dry grocery distribution center developed by Keogh Consulting. CICMHE sponsors the annual material handling student design competition for teams of students interested in the analysis and design of material handling systems. Since the first design competition was offered during the 1994-1995 academic year, student design teams have developed material handling system designs for a variety of manufacturing and warehousing operations. Design problems are typically drawn from the case files of designers and manufacturers of material handling equipment and their end users.
