BillBaileyWelcome to my webpage.  After several years as an adjunct instructor in the Master of Science in Quality Assurance program I joined the full time faculty as an Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering Technology and Quality Assurance in 2012. Beginning in the fall of 2013, I became the coordinator of the MSQA program.  In 2015, I became coordinator for all graduate programs in the Systems and Industrial Engineering Department. This includes the MSQA, Master of Science in Systems Engineering, and our new Master of Science in Engineering Management programs. In the spring of 2019, I earned tenure and was promoted to Associate Professor.

Before joining SPSU, now Kennesaw State University, I worked in manufacturing where I began as a Tool & Die Maker.  As a Plant Trainer and Corporate Trainer, I became involved in training for quality assurance, Lean implementation, and other process improvement approaches.  After leaving manufacturing, I developed and implemented a Tool, Die & Mold Making program for a local community college. 

I have served multiple years as an an examiner for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality award.  I  also serve as an examiner, senior examiner, team leader and trainer for the Georgia Oglethorpe award process.  I teach Lean Six Sigma workshops, and consult on process improvement and organizational performance.
