Engineering Branches and Related Industrial Engineering Articles

Industrial Engineering is redesign of products and processes to increase efficiency efficiency, and productivity and reduce cost. It is applicable in all branches of engineering. Industrial engineering techniques have to taught in all branches of engineering in diploma as well as degree courses. Industrial engineering is used in various branches of engineering in unplanned or informal or exploratory ways. A formal policy of providing specialization to industrial engineering students in various branches of engineering needs to be implemented to produce industrial engineers with skills to do effective jobs in specific branches and also to motivate managers in industries related to that branch of engineering to employ industrial engineers with specialization in that branch.

Optimization Methods for Engineers

N.V.S. Raju

Process Intensification - Optimization of  capital, energy, environmental and safety benefits by radical reduction in the physical size of the plant. 

Process intensification in the chemical process industry is very recent subject in the field of chemical engineering. The concept is hardly a decade old. The aim of intensification is to optimize capital, energy, environmental and safety benefits by radical reduction in the physical size of the plant.

There is some discussion as to the meaning of dramatic improvement,  Prof. Colin Ramshaw, of University of New Castle, a pioneer of this concept, talks of 100 times reduction in equipment  volume, however many would be happy with volume decrease by half or more. But Prof Ramshaw’s assertion is  a very achievable target  for some operations.

New guidance to reduce cost of construction projects

The government has launched draft guidance to help embed best practice in the procurement of public sector construction projects, Minister for Civil Society Nick Hurd has announced today.

The Government Construction Strategy sets out to achieve savings in construction procurement of up to 20% by streamlining processes. In doing so, the government has taken the lead by implementing innovative procurement models such as Two Stage Open Book, Integrated Project Insurance and Cost Led Procurement. These models offer considerable potential to reduce the cost of public sector construction projects, as well as contributing to reduced risk, greater innovation and improved relationships throughout the supply chain.

Dynamic Value Engineering Method Optimizing the Risk on Real Time Operating System

Prashant Kumar Patra, Padma Lochan Pradhan
The value engineering is the high utilization of System Product (i.e. Processor, Memory & Encryption key), Services, Business and Resources at minimal cost.
 The high end operating system providing highest services at optimal cost & time. The value engineering provides the maximum performance, accountability, reliability, integrity and availability of processor, memory, encryption key and other inter dependency sub-components.

Value-engineering change proposals for the consolidated automated support system (CASS):
Smith, R.S. ; Lockheed Martin, Orlando, FL, USA ; Vahey, W.
These changes have the potential to save more than $140 million in CASS program life-cycle costs as a result of lower unit costs, greater reliability, and reduced logistic support costs. By increasing system performance and saving additional space for future technology insertion, these upgrades will enable CASS to test a wide range of weapon system technology well into the next century.

Industrial Engineering - IIE Code of Ethics

IIE endorses the Canon of Ethics provided by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
The Fundamental Principles
Engineers uphold and advance the integrity, honor and dignity of the engineering profession by:
1. Using their knowledge and skill for the enhancement of human welfare;
2. Being honest and impartial, and serving with fidelity the public, their employers and clients;
3. Striving to increase the competence and prestige of the engineering profession; and
4. Supporting the professional and technical societies of their disciplines.
The Fundamental Canons
1. Engineers shall hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public in the performance of their professional duties.
2. Engineers shall perform services only in the areas of their competence.
3. Engineers shall issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner.
4. Engineers shall act in professional matters for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees, and shall avoid conflicts of interest.
5. Engineers shall build their professional reputation on the merit of their services and shall not compete unfairly with others.
6. Engineers shall associate only with reputable persons or organizations.
7. Engineers shall continue their professional development throughout their careers and shall provide opportunities for the professional development of those engineers under their supervision.
