About Stanley Reiter

Over his career, Stanley was an inspiration to many people.. Please take a moment to read this letter from J. Michael Harrison, one of Stanley's colleagues. He relives a day he spent visiting Fairfield Manufacturing Co. in Lafayette, Indiana, with Stanley, that continues to impact the way he thinks today.

Stanley co-invented a computer system to "unsnarl the job shop problem." The results of this work has had far-reaching influences. A 1966 Business Week article featured this endeavor. For a step back in time, including a picture of Stanley and his colleagues with old-fashioned tools and machines, you can read this article here.

Finally, please read this piece by Jennifer Byrd about the impact Stanley has had on Kellogg.
