Pressures on modern technology-based businesses demand the development of product-service systems that are more effective and more efficient in ever shortening timeframes. Simultaneously, these organizations are dealing with increasingly complex value streams: manufacturing and assembly, supply chain, sales and marketing, service and support. Lean Commercialization is the process that creates these value streams to profitably generate value for stakeholders. A key process within Lean Commercialization is Systems Engineering (SE), which is a set of structured principles and methods that systematically and reliably enables value creation for stakeholders.
Participants in this workshop will learn SE principles and methods to systematically define, develop, and produce world-class products and systems. Participants are encouraged to bring actual product scenarios from their current work place for discussion and abbreviated practice sessions.
Who Should Attend
This program is intended for product development practitioners and managers including: systems engineers, other engineers, engineering managers, designers, executives, and anyone wishing a deeper understanding of the role that systems engineering plays in value creation and commercialization. Teams are strongly encouraged to attend, to develop a common language and to directly apply concepts and tools during the workshop to specific cross-functional projects.
Faculty consultation each day from 5:00-6:30pm (optional).

Dr. Marcos Esterman is an Associate Professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering at RIT. He received his BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and his Ph.D. from the Mechanical Engineering Design Division at Stanford. His teaching interests are in product and process development and systems engineering, and he regularly teaches in programs such as Multi-Disciplinary Senior Design, Manufacturing Leadership, Product Development, and Lean Six Sigma. Dr. Esterman is director of the Lean Engineering and Product Development Simulation (LEaP) Lab, which seeks to improve the effectiveness of product development and to increase commercialization success by closing the gap between academia and industry. His research is focused on structured product development, methods, integration of lean principles into the product development and commercialization processes, and print as a manufacturing process.
Prior to joining RIT, Dr. Esterman worked for Hewlett-Packard and GE Medical Systems. His analysis work at HP enhanced design and product architecture decision-making. While at HP he held a variety of positions in manufacturing and R&D while concurrently conducting his PhD research. Dr. Esterman brings over 25 years of combined experience in industrial and academic settings and he integrates these experiences in product development into the classroom. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
