Professor David A. Nembhard joined the Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering faculty in Fall 2016. He previously held appointments in Industrial Engineering at Penn State University, and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in Systems Engineering from Case Western Reserve University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan.
Dr. Nembhard’s research program is multidisciplinary in nature focusing on improving the productivity and performance of complex systems considering individual human differences. Such differences may include levels and types of skills, learning and forgetting characteristics, as well as modes of interpersonal communication. He has contributed to several fields of study including human factors, management science, production systems, and ergonomics with over 50 peer reviewed articles and papers. In support of these research efforts, Nembhard’s work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, and various corporate sponsors. He has collaborated broadly with national and international colleagues, in France, Spain, Israel, Korea, and China to quantify key differences in work patterns among industrial and academic cohorts.
Dr. Nembhard has taught MBA courses in quality control, management science, and statistics. In engineering, he teaches courses in decision analysis, production planning, workforce engineering, data mining, probability models, and project management engineering. Dr. Nembhard is a member of The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences, the Institute for Industrial and Systems Engineering, and the IEEE Society for Engineering Management.
