What is Industrial Engineering?
Industrial engineering is engineering to improve the productivity of engineering systems based on the studies and analysis of data collected during studies, experiments and operations. Many methods of industrial engineering are termed as studies - Process study, Method study, Motion study, Production study, Time study. Industrial engineering is closely associated with management, as its recommendation are implemented in operations as fast as possible and industrial engineers have to persuade and train other engineers, supervisors and operators in the new method as quickly as possible and realize the productivity and profit increase for the organization. Hence the management component of industrial engineering discipline is big in comparison to the management component of traditional engineers involved in design activities. The management component in engineering occupations in operations departments is always big.
The first president of ASME in his presidential address exhorted mechanical engineers to understand the relation between elements of engineering design and production and elements of cost accounting that determine the production cost as well as the life cycle cost of engineering items. Even though attention to cost was given by civil engineers earlier, the call by ASME president led to the emergence of a branch/discipline of engineering termed "Industrial Engineering." The branch was started by Prof Diemer at Penn State College, now known by the name Penn State University in 1908.
F.W. Taylor became the father of both the disciplines Industrial Engineering and Industrial Management.
Prof Diemer started the branch of Industrial Engineering to develop students in the philosophy, principles, methods, and techniques developed so far in the area of productivity improvement.
