8 Engineering and Management What is an Engineer? Ingenium: Talent, natural capacity, or clever invention. Early applications of Clever Inventions based on Military Builders of Ingenious military machines?? Dr.B.G.Cetiner

9 Engineering and Management The first issue (1866) of the English Journal Engineering The art of directing the great sources of power in nature, for the use and convenience of man. Is it an art or profession? Dr.B.G.Cetiner

10 Engineering and Management Modern Definition of Engineering By ABET (Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology) The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgement to develop ways to utilize, economically, the materials and forces of the nature for the benefit of mankind. Engineer: A person applying his mathematical and science knowledge properly for mankind It is a discipline not an art. Dr.B.G.Cetiner

11 Engineering and Management What is a system? Interrelated components which come together for some purposes. Components Interrelations Boundary Environment Purpose inputs Outputs interface constraints Dr.B.G.Cetiner

12 Engineering and Management What is Management? Directing the actions of a group to achieve a goal in most efficient manner Getting things done through people Process of achieving organizational goals by working with and through people and organizational resources Dr.B.G.Cetiner

14 Engineering and Management LevelType of Job First-line Managers  Directly supervise non-managers.  Carry out the plans and objectives of higher management using the personnel and other resources assigned to them.  Short-range operating plans governing what will be done tomorrow or next week, assign tasks to their workers, supervise the work that is done, and evaluate the performance of individual workers. Middle Management  Manage through other managers.  Make plans of intermediate range to achieve the long-range goals set by top management, establish departmental policies, and evaluate the performance of subordinate work units and their managers.  Provide and integrating and coordinating function so that the short-range decisions and activities of first-line supervisory groups can be orchestrated toward achievement of the long-range goals of the enterprise. Top Management  Responsible for defining the character, mission, and objectives of the enterprise.  Establish criteria for and review long-range plans.  Evaluate the performance of major departments, and they evaluate leading management personnel to gauge their readiness for promotion to key executive positions.
