1 Industrial Engineering Your Bridge to the Future

2 What do IE’s Do? IEs make processes better in the following ways: More efficient and more profitable business practices Better customer service and product quality Improved efficiency Increased ability to do more with less Making work safer, faster, easier, and more rewarding Helping companies produce more products quickly Making the world safer through better designed products Reducing costs associated with new technologies IEs make processes better in the following ways: More efficient and more profitable business practices Better customer service and product quality Improved efficiency Increased ability to do more with less Making work safer, faster, easier, and more rewarding Helping companies produce more products quickly Making the world safer through better designed products Reducing costs associated with new technologies

14 Operations Research  Involves mathematical analysis and optimization  Finding the best arrangement of routes for an airline or delivery organization  Figuring out how to get all the thousands of supplies to a manufacturing plant or army with the least cost  Involves mathematical analysis and optimization  Finding the best arrangement of routes for an airline or delivery organization  Figuring out how to get all the thousands of supplies to a manufacturing plant or army with the least cost

15 Manufacturing  Industrial Engineers are often in charge of laying out or redesigning manufacturing lines and designing manufacturing processes  Where should the next factory be built?  How can an assembly line be reconfigured to account for the next product model?  Industrial Engineers are often in charge of laying out or redesigning manufacturing lines and designing manufacturing processes  Where should the next factory be built?  How can an assembly line be reconfigured to account for the next product model?

16 Systems/Process Engineering  Industrial Engineers learn how to analyze the flow of information, materials and people through a system to improve performance  Analyze how the paperwork flow for a government program can be improved  Model the flow of people through an emergency room to improve safety and performance.  Industrial Engineers learn how to analyze the flow of information, materials and people through a system to improve performance  Analyze how the paperwork flow for a government program can be improved  Model the flow of people through an emergency room to improve safety and performance.

17 Human Factors  Industrial Engineers study how people think, move and respond to input in order to design systems that work well.  Ergonomics is the study of people physical capabilities  Human Factors emphasizes mental capabilities  Human-Systems Design is the study of how people interact with mechanical and computer systems.  Industrial Engineers study how people think, move and respond to input in order to design systems that work well.  Ergonomics is the study of people physical capabilities  Human Factors emphasizes mental capabilities  Human-Systems Design is the study of how people interact with mechanical and computer systems.

18 Quality Control  Industrial Engineers know how to use statistical sampling to analyze the quality of a product  Many companies employee IE’s to measure and track their final products  The trend is to improve quality by improving the design and manufacturing process, rather than fixing problems at the end.  Industrial Engineers know how to use statistical sampling to analyze the quality of a product  Many companies employee IE’s to measure and track their final products  The trend is to improve quality by improving the design and manufacturing process, rather than fixing problems at the end.
