Data Fusion and Analytics, Quality Engineering, Advanced Manufacturing


        Jionghua (Judy) Jin is a professor in the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering
and the Director of Manufacturing Program of Integrative Systems and Design Division at the
University of Michigan. Her research interests are in data fusion and analytics in quality
engineering with primary applications in manufacturing. Her research targets in-situ quality
control for defect prevention during manufacturing by optimizing operations and maintenance
decisions concurrently. Her methodologies are based on the fusion of engineering models with
advanced statistics, machine learning, reliability, system control, and optimization. She has
served as PI and co-PI for more than $18-million in research grants, funded by National Science
Foundation (NSF), US-Army, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, and various
industrial companies including GM, Ford, Honda, Samsung, Global Solar Energy, etc. Her
research has been implemented in various manufacturing industries including metal forming
(stamping, forging, casting, rolling and seamless tubes), automotive, electronics, solar energy
systems, etc., which generate significant economic and social impacts.

         Dr. Jin is currently serving as the Editor of IISE Transactions on Quality and Reliability
Engineering (QRE) and serving on the Editorial Advisory Board of Journal of Industrial and
Production Engineering. She served as the Department Editor of IISE-QRE and an Associate
Editor for Technometrics (2009–2012), Journal of Quality Technology (2007–2009), and
International Journal of Flexible Manufacturing Systems (2005–2008). She served as Vice
President of INFORMS for International Activities (2010–2013), President-Elect (2007) &
President (2008) for IISE-Quality Control and Reliability Engineering (QCRE) Division; Chair-
Elect (2006) & Chair (2007) for INFORMS-Quality and Reliability subdivision.

          Dr. Jin has received numerous awards including the Presidential Award (NSF-PECASE) in
2004; NSF-CAREER Award in 2002, Forging Achievement Award from Forging Industry
Educational and Research Foundation in 2007, and fourteen (14) Best Paper Awards from IISE
Transactions, ASME-MSEC, ASME-IMECE, IE and INFORMS annual conferences, etc. She is
an elected Fellow of Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineering (IISE), American Society of
Mechanical Engineering (ASME), and International Statistical Institute (ISI).
