An industrial engineer designs better methods and facilities for manufacturing and services. They study the various industrial processes involved, use mathematical models and computer simulation to devise new manufacturing systems that are more efficient.




When new projects come up, an industrial engineer is usually involved in it from start to finish. Industrial engineers determine the suitability of locations for factories depending on the best combination of raw material availability , transportation and other costs.




They also have to work out the best possible system for handling and storage of raw material , setting inventory size as well as packaging and the physical distribution of goods and services. In addition to these services, they are also concerned with worker safety and work environment.
