On behalf of the rest of the editorial board, the reviewers, and the Society of Industrial and Systems Engineering (SISE), it gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of the second issue of the journal entitled Industrial and Systems Engineering Review (ISER). ISER aims to publish original research manuscripts, review articles, case studies, as well as existing techniques as applied to new problem domains. In this second issue, we have seven (7) articles spanning the aforementioned areas. Herein, you will find articles in the following technical areas: reliability and maintenance, optimization, economic analysis, safety, ergonomics, lean, quantitative and qualitative analysis . The application areas are quite varied and include the manufacturing, construction, pharmacuetical, and others. Like we did, I hope you enjoy reading these articles and will consider submitting a manuscript to our journal in the near future.
