August - Industrial Engineering Knowledge Revision Plan

Industrial Engineering ONLINE Course

Learn more about improving Process Efficiency/Productivity and Reducing Cost of Production/Process.

Revision of Process Industrial Engineering - Methods, Techniques and Tools

In this month's revision plan the focus is on production/engineering process improvement which also includes many engineering processes related to production, inspection, maintenance, material handling and service of engineering goods and services.

Management of processes are also analyzed and redesigned by industrial engineers. If management processes, activities and policies are responsible for poor productivity, industrial engineers have to propose changes in management methods, practices and tools to improve productivity. This aspect of industrial engineering is discussed under the area - productivity management.
