Presented a talk on "Computers in Textiles" to the students in the Governor's Honors Program, Valdosta, GA, July 1986.
Made presentations on the Textile Engineering program at "banquets" organized by the School in cooperation with textile plants at several locations in Georgia for area high school students. These banquets have contributed to increased enrollment in the undergraduate programs.
Acquisition of a process control system for the School: Responsible for technical evaluation and system specification; also involved (along with the School Director) in extensive negotiations with Combustion Engineering (CE) on system cost. The discussions have led to the donation of a system valued at approximately $720K.
Coordinator, Georgia Tech / Milliken Summer Challenge, Summer 1992: Organized and coordinated the activities of interdisciplinary teams of 12 students and 6 faculty members in the first TQM Summer Challenge at Milliken & Company. Activities ranged from developing the plan of action to monitoring the progress and reporting the results to top Milliken management. Interacted extensively with students and Milliken sponsors. Recommended changes to the current plan to improve the quality of the program for the benefit of students, faculty and Milliken. Based on the summer experience, Milliken has elected to continue the program for the Summer of 1993. The proposed recommendations are also being implemented by Milliken.
Coordinator, Georgia Tech / Milliken Summer Challenge, Summer 1993: Similar activities as in 1992; Milliken decided to continue the program for the Summer of 1994.
Coordinator, Georgia Tech / Milliken Summer Challenge, Summer 1994: Similar activities as in 1992 amd 1993; Milliken has again decided to continue the program for the Summer of 1995.
