  • 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.
