I was in Dr. Francis class, when the first edition of his book with Dr. White was published. It’s my small tribute to him, to have started this endeavour with my copy of that book.

After my graduate studies at the University of Florida I returned to my home country, Portugal, where I have been teaching Industrial Engineering courses since 1979. Among them are the subjects of these five blogs.

    I am impressed with your dedication to your former professor and pleased you had the spare time to realize your plans.
    Since you’ve been doing this Industrial Engineering teaching for a few weeks now you probably have heard and seen it all. Just kidding- I’ve been involved in Industrial Engineering since 1979 too. I work for an aircraft manufacturer.
    Thanks for putting up thyis site.
