From L-R: Edward de Juan (BSIE, 4th yr), Jayson Yodico (BSIE, 4th yr), Angelo Ani (case competition judge, UP Diliman IE Faculty, adviser of UP CIEM), Aubrey Butlig (BSIE, 4th yr), Patricia Minette Regalado (BSIE, 4th yr), Liza Leander (coach and Chair, Dept. of Engineering), and Dr. Florencio Gaa (Dean, SSE)

Last September 14, UA&P came out top among two other finalists in IEshikawa 8’s case study competition.

Aubrey Butlig, Edward de Juan, Patricia Regalado and Jason Yodico, all fourth year students and the pioneer batch of the Industrial Engineering program, represented the school in IEshikawa 8, a seminar-workshop event hosted by the UP Circle of Industrial Engineering Majors (UP CIEM) for industrial engineering students around the Philippines.

Already on it’s eighth installment, IEshikawa is an annual event hosted by the UP CIEM consisting of seminars and talks featuring different industrial engineering techniques and operations as well as a case study competition.

The case study involved Atlantis Motors, a fictional motoring company aiming to expand in an untapped area where competitors are slowly gaining footing. The students were tasked to forecast potential sales and to determine best locations and cost estimates for planned outlets and the Central Warehouse.

Using statistics and IE tools in accomplishing the case study, the group bested a number of engineering schools in the competition, most notably Ateneo de Davao and PUP (Sta. Mesa), who, along with UA&P, presented their case analysis last Saturday.

The students were coached by Ms. Liza Leander, SSE-Engineering Department Chair, with the assistance of SSE faculty members Dr. Malu U and Ms. Jovel Nabia and ICT Section Head for Academic Technologies Jason de Villa.
