There are no fixed working hours of an industrial and production engineer and they definitely need to work in night shifts. An industrial engineer design 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. They calculate how much work each machine or worker should deliver and if necessary initiate the use of automation and robotics.

They 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.
