Human Effort Engineering for Increasing Productivity - Principle of Industrial Engineering



Industrial Engineering is System Efficiency Engineering and Human Effort Engineering.




Industrial engineering focuses on efficiency, productivity and cost reduction of systems. It has application to every component or subsystem and to every resource used as system input and to every output produced by the system.

So we can think of areas like

Machine industrial engineering
Energy industrial engineering
Human effort industrial engineering
Supply chain industrial engineering
Power plant industrial engineering
Material handling industrial engineering
Information systems industrial engineering




TAYLOR - NARAYANA RAO PRINCIPLES OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING


Human Effort Industrial  Engineering for Increasing Productivity - Principle of Industrial Engineering




Human Effort Engineering


Human resources employed in engineering systems have their own needs. Industrial engineers are unique in engineering disciplines in taking up the engineering of human effort. They have to synthesize the theories of human sciences, some of which are developed by industrial engineering also, to design human work for an optimal combination of productivity, income, comfort, health, safety and satisfaction of the employed.

Elton Mayo - Narayana Rao  Synthesis - Utilization of Human Sciences in Industry


In 1923, Elton Mayo, in the paper "The Irrational Factor in Human  Behavior" indicated that industry has failed to utilize human sciences.

In 2017, Narayana Rao, proposed as a principle utilization of human sciences in human effort industrial engineering.

Human resources employed in engineering systems have their own needs. Industrial engineers are unique in engineering disciplines in taking up the engineering of human effort. They have to synthesize the theories of human sciences, some of which are developed by industrial engineering also, to design human work for an optimal combination of productivity, income, comfort, health, safety and satisfaction of the employed.
