Conference News and Announcements
SAIIE 28 Partnership Prospectus
The 28th annual SAIIE conference, the premier conference of industrial engineering and related disciplines on the African continent, will be held from 25 - 27 October 2017 at Riverside Sun, Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng. The conference gives industry, organisations, academics, and government the opportunity to showcase cutting edge practice and research.
SAIIE28 wants to challenge the IE community to take a broader perspective, to not only seriously start taking an active interest and responsibility for our public sector, but more than that, to take up stewardship. The ISO for 'Sustainability in Events Management' provides this definition for stewardship: "Responsibility for sustainable development shared by all those whose actions affect environmental performance, economic activity, and social progress, reflected as both a value and a practice by individuals, organisations, communities, and competent authorities."
SAIIE28 will, in particular, focus on:
Government service delivery and capacity building
Water & Energy
Infrastructure & the NDP
The spectrum of work in industrial engineering is very broad. Presentations will be accepted in fields such as systems engineering, information management and big data, logistics & supply chain management, project management, change management, leadership, organisational excellence etc. Delegates will benefit from networking opportunities to exchange ideas, to gain insight from peers and to engage with the most up to date thinking in industrial engineering.
We would like to give your company the opportunity to partner with SAIIE to help make this conference one to remember. In the rest of this document, various opportunities are listed where you could become involved. You are also welcome to contact us should you have particular ideas of your involvement as a partner. We expect to have about 150 delegates.

Arguably, the most neglected area of the economy as far as the “general” industrial engineer is concerned is the civil service and local government environment. Municipalities and Metros are all understaffed with the “correct” resources, creating the now famous “capacity building” problem that is used as an excuse (sometimes valid, sometimes less so) for the poor service delivery.
All the areas which IEs have traditionally been involved in private enterprises, at varying levels, are also present in the public enterprises, think Energy, Health, Infrastructure projects, Supply Chain.
SAIIE would like to challenge our members to a take broader perspective, to not only seriously start taking an active interest and responsibility for our public sector, but more than that, to take up Stewardship.
The ISO for 'Sustainability in Events Management' provides this definition: "Responsibility for sustainable development shared by all those whose actions affect environmental performance, economic activity, and social progress, reflected as both a value and a practice by individuals, organisations, communities, and competent authorities"
Stewardship encompasses leadership, management, sustainability, social development and compassion within our communities – and holds us accountable for it in our daily interactions.
It is with great excitement that we now officially announce:
