Continuous Improvement in the Industrial and Management Systems Engineering Programme at Kuwait University
Aldowaisan, Tariq; Allahverdi, Ali
European Journal of Engineering Education, v41 n4 p369-379 2016
This paper describes the process employed by the Industrial and Management Systems Engineering programme at Kuwait University to continuously improve the programme. Using a continuous improvement framework, the paper demonstrates how various qualitative and quantitative analyses methods, such as hypothesis testing and control charts, have been applied to the results of four assessment tools and other data sources to improve performance. Important improvements include the need to reconsider two student outcomes as they were difficult to implement in courses. In addition, through benchmarking and the engagement of Alumni and Employers, key decisions were made to improve the curriculum and enhance employability.
