Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of  integrated systems of men, materials and equipment. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict and evaluate the results to be obtained from such a system.

Industrial engineering is an engineering profession that is concerned with the optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations. Industrial engineering is central to manufacturing operations.

Industrial engineers design, create, test and assess various ways of managing industrial production processes. Their main goal is to discover new ways of making these processes more efficient ad they do that by implementing systems that integrate all production components of a product or a service, like workers, machinery, raw materials, energy and information.

Industrial engineers need a diverse skill set, including a unique combination of theoretical and practical knowledge, to improve efficiency in production processes. For example, they must analyze supply chains and other process flows, confer with clients and customers to learn more about their needs and specifications, and educate workers on new policies or technologies.

Some of the most common industrial engineering tasks are:

  • Discovering new ways to improve the efficiency of manufacturing processes and service delivery

  • Fixing Standard-Times and Production Norms

  • Designing Plant Layout

  • Designing Material Handling Equipment

  • Taking care of Ergonomic factors

  • Project Networking like PERT

  • Enterprise Resource Planning

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
