The UPLB Industrial Engineering Students Organization (UPLB IESO)

is a duly recognized academic organization of the University of the
Philippines Los Baos which prevails to be one of the most dynamic
academic organizations in the University of the Philippines Los Baos as
endorsed by the College of Engineering and Agro-Industrial Technology

As a proud member of the Philippine Institute of Industrial Engineers

(PIIE), the organization engages in the endeavors of the PIIE National
Student Chapter. In line with this, UPLB IESO also aims to promote and
propagate the interests and endeavors of Industrial Engineering in the
university, the community, and the society; and to establish camaraderie
with other student organizations inside and outside the University.

Previously: 8th STIES (2016)

PIONEER: Leading the Future with Lean Six Sigma


In fulfillment of our goals, the organization will be holding the annual

Southern Tagalog Industrial Engineering Seminar (S.T.I.E.S.) with the
theme PERCEIVE: Industrial Engineers Roles in Service Quality.
S.T.I.E.S. aims to develop the Industrial Engineering profession around
the CALABARZON area, the countrys manufacturing arena, in a hope
to pull together the academe, industry, and government sectors into
promoting Industrial Engineering in the whole Philippines. The activity
will showcase theme-based theories, concepts, and industrial practices
from reputable speakers from well-known firms.


Service Quality Management

Quality management is not a technology, rather, it is a philosophy. A new way of
thinking and deep commitment are essential; an overnight transformation should not
be expected. The road will be long and difficult, but the benefits will be countless.
Quality management utilizes different engineering and management techniques such
as statistical process control and quality circles to create a quality product, whether
that product be tangible (i.e. a physical good) or intangible (i.e. a service). It is
important "to manufacture products with the quality which can satisfy the
requirements of consumers." In other words, customer satisfaction should be a
primary concern. If the customer is not satisfied with the quality of the product, the
company will have difficulty selling that product regardless of its cost. The customer
may even take his business elsewhere maximum productivity is achieved and
output is regulated. Less scrap is produced. In turn, customers are much more

Industrial Engineers in Service Quality Management

Industrial engineers play an important role in the quality management
transformation. The course work of industrial engineers teaches them several
engineering techniques that are essential in implementing the quality management
philosophy. Techniques such as statistical process control and just in time (JIT)
manufacturing, and industrial engineers computer experience are assets to the
transformation process. The industrial engineer fulfills the role of the liaison between
management and hourly workers. Industrial engineers interact heavily with both of
these groups -which make them an ideal candidate to bridge the gap between them.
They also have the "people skills" that are necessary for this type of situation. They
offer guidance to the managers on how to make the quality management
transformation. They also institute training for the workers so they can understand
and can implement the new manufacturing techniques. The industrial engineer
becomes a counselor and facilitator for both groups.

On behalf of the Department of Industrial Engineering, we would like to

invite Industrial Engineering students from your school to participate in
the said seminar which would be held on September 16, 2017 8AM-5PM
at the D.L. Umali Auditorium, UPLB.
