Ji obtained his PhD in industrial Engineering from West Virginia University in
1991. He worked in National University of Singapore before, and now he has been
working in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University over 20 years. He has published
more than 100 papers in the reputed journals and has been serving as an

Engineering (IE) is growing up with computer technologies. A good and early
example is MRP (Material Requirement Planning), which was first developed in
1950’s while the first digital computer was believed to be invented in 1940’s.
Now we are in the era of “big data” and IE has become iIE.
short presentation will brief some research projects we did recently in
industrial engineering. The first one is about Advanced Planning and Scheduling
(APS), which is an extension of the traditional MRP (Material Requirement
Planning). The second topic is about bioinformatics, how to use mathematics in
bioinformatics to get useful information. “Big Data” is simply to say data in
the internet. We discuss how an IE person can analyze intelligently the data in
the internet to obtain helpful information in the third topic.
