May - Industrial Engineering Knowledge Revision Plan

May - Industrial Engineering Knowledge Revision - Cost and Management Accounting and Organizational Behavior.

Both topics are of fundamental importance to Industrial Engineers. Henry Towne indicated it in 1886. Taylor followed it. Going captured it in his textbook of 1911.

The Definition "Industrial Engineering is System Efficiency Engineering and Human Effort Engineering" captures the same thought in one sentence.

Efficiency refers to the cost of designing and producing engineering goods and services. Human effort refers to human related data. Both are used by industrial engineers to redesign engineering solutions developed on the basis of  technical and scientific considerations.

Industrial engineers make the assumption of economists that commercial organizations respond to market information true by making changes to engineering designs and processes in response to market and internal factory or supply chain data.

Principles of Industrial Engineering Presented by Professor K.V.S.S. Narayana Rao (Author of this blog) on 23 May 2017 at the Annual Conference of Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers in Pittsburgh, USA.  Industrial Engineering is a management subject or discipline with Engineering as the foundation. Its primary application area is engineering systems. It augmented application area is any system.  INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING IS SYSTEM EFFICIENCY ENGINEERING AND HUMAN EFFORT ENGINEERING (Definition by Narayana Rao - Published in Udyog Pragati, Jounral of NITIE in 2006)

Understanding human behavior, the content of the subject Organizational Behavior is also important for industrial engineers  to train operators in the redesigned methods and also to interact with them during the observation phase of the IE study and then involving them in developing new methods. Understanding human behavior is also essential to understand his commitment to work at 100% rating, commitment to zero defect production, and active participation in total industrial engineering efforts.
