UH IE Department Hosts Annual INFORMS & IISE Cintas Hackathon Event at the Cintas Services Facility in Northwest Houston on Saturday, Jan. 25.

Thirty-two students from the University of Houston industrial engineering department attended the annual Informs & IISE Hackathon event held at the Cintas services facility in Northwest Houston on Saturday, Jan. 25. 

The day started with a plant tour of the Cintas facilities and a presentation led by the Cintas maintenance supervisor and Director of Operations Engineering, Eric Ayanegui (BSIE ’95). The presentation discussed Cintas’ history and what it takes to maintain the safety, quality, reliability and efficiency of the company.

Following the presentation, students were able to network with Cintas leadership and participate in a group brainstorming session about what it takes to solve a critical problem around reliability.

The group with the most impressive presentation was able to present their ideas to Cintas leadership for plans around reliability management.

The goal of these events is to provide networking opportunities and resources to further the successes of UH IE students.
