An engineering professor is the editor of a new book celebrating women who have contributed to the field of industrial and systems engineering. Alice Smith, the Joe W. Forehand/Accenture Distinguished Professor of industrial and systems engineering and joint appointment professor of computer science and software engineering, sought out women engineers from across the globe to contribute to the book, “Women in Industrial and Systems Engineering” published by Springer. The 599-page book presents a diversity of innovative and impactful research in the field of industrial and systems engineering led by women investigators.

After a foreword by Margaret L.
