President’s Message

It is amazing to see how quickly this year is going by.

The temperatures are already dipping and that

means that the exciting holiday season will be soon

upon us. As we prepare for the holidays, we will also

be electing new members to the IIE Twin Cities Board

of Directors.

Through our transition plan, Sean Dveris will be the

President of the chapter for 2014. Sean has been an

active member of the board and I am confident that

Sean will continue to offer his leadership to this

group. With this change, I will take on the role of

Past President.

Tracey Bauer will be the President-Elect and Jeromy

Knapp will be the Treasurer. Both Tracey and Jeromy

have successfully held several board positions. They

will continue to help Sean lead the group.

Christy Strong will be leaving the board of directors

to focus more on working with student chapters.

Christy is a long time member of the board and her

contributions over the years have led to the success

of this group. I would like to thank Christy for her

dedicated service to this group.

Christy also gave us tips on writing up our

resumes. She suggested that instead of

simply stating the projects we’ve completed

for a class or job, we should describe how we

solved a problem or improved a system

through the project.

She also spoke about her career path and the

opportunities that are available in the health

care industry. Christy gave us great tips for

preparing for our future and the paths we

could take.

As an IIE collegiate chapter we try to bring in

speakers who can help us prepare for life after

graduation. On Friday, October 11th

, Christy

Strong, the new chair for the NDSU Advisory

Board and Project Manager at Boston

Scientific, spoke to a group of industrial and

manufacturing engineering students.

She spoke on some topics of our choice such

as the health care industry, how to obtain an

internship or full time job and women in a

management role. Christy highlighted the

importance of networking not only with

companies, but also with fellow students.

Those connections are important when looking

for a job and are the easiest to make.

As a division of Emerson, Rosemount Inc.

assembles measurement instrumentation

products with many thousands of

configurations and under the guidelines of

approval agencies from all over the world.

This is achieved by utilizing a combination of

checks and balances to ensure that the

customer gets what they require and all

safety and regulatory compliance

requirements are met.

This tour was a unique opportunity for the IIE

group was able to see multiple methods of

achieving this truly one-piece flow for

thousands of unit configurations per day.

Rosemount’s “legacy” line stocks the majority

of component options at each step along the

way with bar code scanning and light curtains

to verify and provide traceability. In an effort

to reduce cycle time and footprint, a new line

utilizing a super-market system with light

curtains and visual indicators has been

implemented. This line allows components to

be picked up-front (rather than point-of-use).

This change required additional quality

investigation with parts handling and

inspection points.

Many thanks to John Roche and Chuck

Kutrzman of the Rosemount facility in

Chanhassen for hosting us!

Change Management Workshop, June 2013

On June 17th

IIE Twin Cities hosted the “Change Management – The ‘soft stuff’ is the hard stuff”

workshop presented by Susan Campion at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Susan is currently an

adjunct faculty member at the University of St. Thomas where she teaches in the MBA and

executive education programs.

The workshop included the following topics: aligning improvement efforts with business objectives, creating a culture, engaging your

organization, and communicating for change. Susan’s style of using creative examples to demonstrate key success factors kept the day

interesting. It was refreshing to break away from standard manufacturing cases.

The group discussed and shared experience and best practices in:

Elements of lean culture: continuous improvement/ PDCA, bottom-up problem solving/ improvement ideas, teamwork, visual

communication, standard work, relentlessly reducing waste, challenging assumptions, monitoring/ measuring and listening and

valuing opinions from all

Leading a culture change: what leaders can do

The change cycle

Tools: communication planning and stakeholder analysis

Thanks to all who came and participated!

On July 11th

the IIE Twin Cities chapter held

an event at RedEye, by Stratasys, in Eden

Prairie. RedEye is the leader in rapid

prototyping with more than 150 machines

globally. RedEye can build up to 5,000 parts

in two weeks and reduce build times from

days to hours. As companies see the

advantages of the technology, the rapid

prototyping industry is projected to reach

between $230 billion to $550 billion per year

by 2025.

With the growth and capabilities of 3D

printing will come a plethora of

opportunities for industrial engineers to

improve processes. This event provided a

firsthand experience with the machines,

parts, and capabilities of this exciting

technology.

The event started with an overview of

RedEye from the Vice President of RedEye,

Jim Bartel. The overview included a

background of RedEye and Stratasys along

with types, advantages, and applications of

3D printing. After the overview the group

broke into three smaller groups to rotate

through a series of stations and machines.

The first station, concept modeling and

functional prototypes, provided a glimpse of

one of the newest Stratasys acquisitions in

action, the Objet. The machine is inkjet based

producing high feature and surface finished

parts. The second station, manufacturing

tools, highlighted the capability of companies

using 3D printing to create jigs, fixtures,

molds, etc. One example was a tool used to

locate the BMW logo on the trunk of a car.

The final station, low volume production of

end-use parts, showcased how final parts can

be made to meet the needs of the final

product.

The event concluded at Jake's with a little

post event networking. Thanks to RedEye for

hosting the event and to everyone that was

able to make the event.

What is IIE?

IIE is the world’s largest professional society dedicated solely to the support of the industrial engineering

profession and individuals involved with improving quality and productivity. Founded in 1948, IIE is an international, non-profit association that provides leadership for the application, education, training,

research and development of industrial engineering.

With approximately 15,000 members and 280 chapters worldwide, IIE’s primary mission is to meet the ever-

changing needs of industrial engineers, which includes undergraduate and graduate students, engineering

practitioners and consultants in all industries, engineering managers, and engineers in education,

research and government.

What is IIE Twin Cities?

The IIE Twin Cities Chapter 38 provides a network for individuals within Minnesota and surrounding areas to

collaborate about industrial engineering. Our members include professionals with industrial engineering degrees, both working in IE and non-IE roles and

professionals working in IE related functions.

We provide monthly events which include topics in professional development, Lean, Six Sigma, Quality,

process improvement and tours at distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, hospitals and consulting firms. We also promote the industrial engineering profession by providing scholarships to IE students and becoming

involved with several student IIE chapters.
