Dr. Irani has pioneered the development of JobshopLean, an extension of Lean Manufacturing concepts to high-mix low-volume small-to-medium-sized enterprises. His research group has created PFAST (Production Flow Analysis and Simplification Toolkit), a software for material flow analysis, that has been licensed to CreateAsoft Corporation, a simulation software vendor. A primary thrust in his teaching and research efforts is the practical realization of the theory and science of Industrial Engineering. He is a member of SME and IIE.
