The only field of engineering that makes an individual technically equipped , while instilling efficient management techniques is industrial engineering. Industrial engineering is all about designing/ managing methods and procedures to increase productivity, quality and efficiency in manufacturing process.



WORK AREAS

  • As an industrial engineer you will design better methods and facilities for manufacturing and services. You will study the various industrial processes involved , use mathematical models and computer simulation to device new manufacturing systems that are more efficient.
  • You will calculate how much each machine or worker should deliver and if necessary initiate the use of automation and robots. As an industrial engineer you will aid in financial planning and cost analysis, design production systems as well as quality control procedures.
  • You will 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 & services. In addition to these responsibilities you are also concerned with worker safety and work environment.
  • When new projects come up, as an industrial engineer you will be involved in it from start to finish. Industrial engineers determine the suitability of locations for factories depending upon the best combination of raw materials availability , transportation and costs.
  • In actual plant design , an industrial engineer should figure out which computer systems, machines and automated equipment will be used in the design and manufacturing process. You will determine the most effective layout for computers, equipment and offices such that it is flexible and easily maintainable. As an industrial engineer you will also develop wage and salary administration systems and job evaluation programmes.
  • Much of an industrial engineeroutput is used by management for making decisions. As an industrial engineer , your recommendations may affect the size of firm's profits, its labor relations as well as its production costs. In many ways you are the bridge between management goals and operational performance.
  • One of the major challenges an industrial engineer faces is automating a production process.You will have to first determine what aspect of production needs to be automated and if it makes financial sense. As an industrial engineer, you will also which machine fit the requirements.
  • As an industrial engineer , you will ensure that the placement of equipment, computers and keyboards is perfect right down to the height of desks and tables.
To sum up the main areas of work of an industrial engineer are:-
  • Quality control
  • statistical process control
  • product ability
  • motion economy
  • research & development
