About the Author:

Dr. Hal Aikens is a professor in the Industrial and Information Engineering department at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He was previously employed by the University of Southern Queensland (formerly the Darling Downs Institute of Advanced Education) and Quebecar, Inc. (formerly Kingsport Press, Inc.). Hal served as a supply officer in the United States Navy and is a decorated Vietnam veteran. During his thirty-eight year career he has held leadership positions in industry and academe, with job titles such as manager, production control and cost estimating; senior planning engineer; industrial engineer; program head, operations management; associate dean, resources; and department head, industrial engineering. From 1999 — 2002 Hal served as an adjunct professor of management science at Bond University in Australia. In the decade of the 1990s, as a member of the faculty of the Tennessee Institutes for Productivity through Quality, he helped shape much of the early thinking during the industrial transition to total quality management.

 

Dr. Aikens has a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and two graduate degrees from the University of Tennessee: a master of science in industrial engineering and a Ph.D. in management science. He is a senior member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers and holds memberships in the Institution of Engineers, Australia, the American Society for Quality, and the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science. Hal is a principal reviewer for John Wiley, Prentice-Hall, McGraw-Hill, and Duxbury Press, and has served as an Associate Editor for the European Journal for Operational Research. He is a registered chartered professional engineer in Australia and an examiner for the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence. He has consulted with over 40 companies and has written numerous papers and given dozens of presentations and industrial seminars on the subject of quality improvement. His research interests are in quality implementations, lean process design, statistical analysis, and the theories of undergraduate education. With the support of the National Science Foundation Hal is currently taking the lead in designing an innovative new national template for engineering education that will be piloted at The University of Tennessee.
