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. An industrial engineer aid in financial planning and cost analysis, design production systems as well as quality control procedures. 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. In addition to these responsibilities they are also concerned with worker safety and work environment. When new projects come up, an industrial engineer is usually involved in it fro start till finish. They determine the suitability of locations for factories depending on the best combination of raw material availability , transportation and costs. Much of an industrial engineer output is used by management for making decisions. The recommendation of industrial engineer affect the size of a firm's profit , its labor relations as well as its production cost. They are responsible for deciding about automating a production process. They determine as to which aspect of production needs to be automated and if it makes financial sense. They usually work with manufacturing units , consumer electronics industry , medical and pharmaceutical units, textiles industry, private consultancy firms, petroleum, steel and chemical industries and research and development establishments of big companies
