As we were preparing the November edition of the journal, I received very sad news on Sunday morning 26 October: Prof Kris Adendorff had passed away during the night. Prof Adendorff is considered by many to be the father of Industrial Engineering in South Africa. Through his wisdom, vision, leadership and endless energy, the Industrial Engineering discipline was established as an academic programme at most of the major academic universities in South Africa in the 60's and 70's. For many of us, he was our teacher, mentor, study leader, colleague and friend.
