The topic "differences between production management and industrial engineering" is an important one. Actually, the difference between pure mechanical engineering and industrial engineering in mechanical engineering discipline also needs to be clarified at this stage. Similarly difference betwee design of a system done by engineers and managers to give outputs required by the potential users has to be distinguished with redesign done by industrial engineers to minimize resource use by identifying and eliminating waste in the first or primary design solution.
In many of the topics of the syllabus, there is original design done engineers and managers with the academic and practical specialization in that topic. The industrial engineers are given the design to do efficiency or productivity analysis and improve it in the dimension.
