Karl Majeske’s research involves three main streams: the application of ‘functional build’ to sheet metal stamping and automobile body manufacturing; warranty and reliability data analysis and prediction; and measurement system analysis. Although he is a young researcher early in his career, he has been extraordinarily productive. In the past two years, he has published seven articles, including one in "IIE Transactions" and another in the "International Journal of Production Research." These two top tier journals appear on the Decision and Information Sciences Department premier journal list. In addition, he is an excellent colleague providing his analytical expertise to researchers in diverse areas including, information systems security, tax accounting, and forensic psychology. Majeske’s research has not been undertaken at the expense of either teaching or service. He is an innovative instructor who is able to combine a rigorous approach to difficult material with a pleasant reinforcing teaching environment. He is among the most popular instructors in the School of Business Administration. He also participates on committees at the departmental, school and university levels. He has actively worked to bring about an innovative career development program called ACHIEVE.
