Industrial engineering

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the optimization of complex

processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and

evaluation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy,

materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences

together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate

the results to be obtained from such systems or processes. Its underlying concepts overlap

considerably with certain business-oriented disciplines such as operations management, but the

engineering side tends to emphasize extensive mathematical proficiency and usage of

quantitative methods.

Depending on the subspecialties involved, industrial engineering may also be known as, or

overlap with, operations management, management science, operations research, systems

engineering, manufacturing engineering, ergonomics or human factors engineering, safety

engineering, or others, depending on the viewpoint or motives of the user. For example, in health

care, the engineers known as health management engineers or health systems engineers are, in

essence, industrial engineers by another name.

[edit] Overview

While the term originally applied to manufacturing, the use of "industrial" in "industrial

engineering" can be somewhat misleading, since it has grown to encompass any methodical or

quantitative approach to optimizing how a process, system, or organization operates. Some

engineering universities and educational agencies around the world have changed the term
