His current research focuses on ergonomics product design and the development of thermal management to Li-Ion batteries using phase change materials. He works as a consultant and production manager at ALL Cell technologies in USA building Li-ion batteries used for electrical cars. He has more than 10 years of teaching in the states. He supervised different Master thesis at Jordan University of Science and Technology and served in many master thesis committees at Jordan University of Science and Technology and Jordan University. He was in charge of establishing Industrial Incubator at Jordan University y of science and Technology. He served as a referee on the Institute of Industrial Engineering conference and the International Conference in Production Research. He regularly serves as a reviewer in Material Sciences Journals. Dr. Alrashdan published studies in various industrial engineering areas, most recently in the Proceedings of Institute of Industrial engineering in Istanbul, Turkey.
Dr. Sa'Ed M. Salhieh is an Assistant Professor at Industrial Engineering department at Alfaisal University. He is specialized in new product development. Dr. Salhieh has a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology in Jordan, a M.Sc. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Michigan – Dearborn in USA, and a PhD. in Industrial Engineering from Wayne State University in USA. Dr. Salhieh's research is mainly motivated by the appreciation of the importance of product development in the current competitive and global environment. He strongly believes that companies nowadays need to develop new products or services to survive and compete in the current turbulent marketplace; consequently he always seeks to develop and implement solution methodologies in the local industry. His primary research interests are modular design, collaborative engineering, product development and information modeling. The scope of his research involves using analytical and quantitative tools to gather, analyze, and model information about customer needs and product functions to engineer new product that can better meet customer demands. His research extends to include developing novel solution methodologies to enhance the product development process. His future research includes investigating new avenues to address the fuzzy front end of the product design process. Currently he is planning to develop methodologies using real options analysis, and logical gates to address the problem of selecting new product concepts. Dr. Salhieh has an established record in research where he has participated in several funded research projects in USA and Jordan. These research projects mainly address the different phases of product development. Dr. Salhieh has also co-founded and serves as the director of the Product Design Laboratory at the University of Jordan. Dr. Salhieh has many publications such as a co- authored book entitled "Product Design for Modularity". In addition his publications are well cited in the literature of product development and mainly in the area of Product Modularity and Collaborative Product Development.
