What is Industrial Engineering?

◦ Development – improvement – evaluation of

people – knowledge – equipment – energy –
material – process based on engineering analysis & synthesis ◦ Eliminates waste of time – money – material – energy – resources ◦ Also known as Engineering Management

◦ Optimal use of production – people –

machines – materials – information – energy
to make process or product

◦ Bridge

between

management

goals

&

operational performance ◦ Simply increase productivity by management of people methods & technology
