n South African Journal of Industrial Engineering - Note from the editor

Volume 21, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1012-277X



The May 2010 edition continues a theme introduced in the May 2009 edition of the Journal. It is a theme of introspection by industrial engineering researchers, probing questions about the research undertaken in various fields of industrial engineering and in doing so finding trends for the profession. As the quote above states, introspection is a healthy approach since it feeds the wisdom of the collective profession. It is therefore significant that this edition has two feature articles, both commenting on IE research trends and perspectives.
