Flow Chart of Industrial Engineering (IE)

Industrial Engineering (IE): 

Industrial Engineering (IE) is a graphical and symbolic representation of the processing activities performed on the workpiece. It is also known as systems engineering, production engineering, operations management. Industrial engineering plays a pivotal role in increasing productivity. Flow Chart of Industrial Engineering (IE) is as follows:

According to the American Institute of Industrial Engineers (AIIE):
“Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of an integrated system 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 systems.”
