Career: Industrial engineer
Welcome!, my career, industrial engineer it is a career that derivates of engineering itself, wich meansthat it is a branch of engineering that deals with the optimization of complex(hard operations) processes or systems.
Industrial engineering it is about or concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, equipment, information, and energy in the best and most efficient manner possible.
So in short words we can tell that industrials engineersare in charge of making the processes better in any way they can or improving the work and proficiency of machines, etc.
The industrial engineers primarily supervise for the processes first than anything, because if you don’t analyze a project how can you make it better?, so that’s what it is about a industrial engineer.
Efficiency is one of an engineers major concerns. Being able to completea job, solve the problem and bring or put a solution in process are all very important, in my opinion the job of a industrial engineer is a really huge one, because I don’t want you to think that I am not modest or anything but it is really a job that you have to dedicate a really good time, and have good concentration because it is like you are in charge of how the operations work. Kinda like youare the boss.
The correct definition for an industrial engineer is: discipline of utilizing and coordinating humans, machines, and materials to attain a desired output rate with the optimum utilization of energy, knowledge, money, and time.
I have to say that it employs certain techniques( such as floor layouts, personnel organization, time standards, wage rates, incentive payment plans) tocontrol the quantity and quality of goods and services produced.
Industrial engineers determine the most effective ways to use the basic factors of production; so we( I will like to talk like this when I become one) are primarily concerned with increasing productivity through the management of people, methods of business organization, and technology.
But making the process efficient allows lesswaste and more profit. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods engineering analysis and design to specify, predict and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems.
Their jobs are also concerned with performances , reliability, cost efficiency , quality control, plant design, and managementof human resources . Materials engineering and computer engineering are two of the modern examples of industrial engineering.
Industrial engineering courses had been taught by multiples universities in the lates 1800s along Europe, especially in very developed countries such as Germany, France, and United Kingdoms, but also in Spain in the technical university of Madrid.
In the United Statesthe first department of industrial engineering was established in 1908 at the Pennsylvania State University by Alex Kaserman.
Efforts to apply science to design of processes and production systems were made by many people in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The origins of industrial engineering can be traced back to many different sources. Fredrick Winslow Taylor is most often considered as thefather of industrial engineering even though all his ideas where not original. Some of the preceding influences may have been Adam Smith, Thomas Malthus, David Ricardo and John Stuart Mill. All of their works provided classical liberal explanations for the successes and limitations of industrial revolution.
Another major contributor to the field was Charles W. Babbage. a mathematics professor....
