Industrial Engineering in South Africa is relatively new, when compared to some of the other Engineering disciplines in South Africa. And, what makes it interesting, is that a lot of the active Industrial Engineers in South Africa have had the privilege to know, or even study under the pioneers who established this exciting discipline in South Africa. However, time moves on and unless we document it, this rich history will get lost. This journal is an ideal vehicle to document some of this history. It is therefore a privilege to publish in this edition a guest editorial from Frank Sperotto. Frank Sperotto is one of the individuals who was involved with SAIIE right from the beginning, and is thus in an ideal position to ensure that this legacy is not lost. This editorial updates earlier publications, documenting the history of Industrial Engineering in South Africa.
