What is a
Industrial Engineers design production layouts and processes with the purpose of increasing productivity, eliminating wastefulness, reducing costs, and ensuring quality standards are maintained. Industrial engineers explore ways to manufacture products or complete tasks in a quicker, more convenient manner. Professionals in this field rely on their knowledge of business organization, product requirements and safety methods to maximize output. Industrial engineers may also work to improve product delivery through better management methods and quality control.
Industrial Engineers focus on how to get the work done most efficiently, balancing many factors, such as time, number of workers needed, available technology, actions workers need to take, achieving the end product with no errors, workers’ safety, environmental concerns, and cost.
