Industrial engineering focuses on the optimization of processes and systems to reduce resource waste in industry.  In this way, the principles of industrial engineering resemble the principles of business management:  reducing inefficiencies in manpower, machine time usage, material usage, energy usage, etc.

Samuel Colt, Fredrick Taylor, Harrington Emerson, Henry Laurence Gantt, Henry Ford, Eliyahu M Goldratt are just a few of the many industrial engineering pioneers whose contributions still remain as guiding pillars of the discipline.

The key skills for a modern day industrial engineer include:

  • Accounting - accounting practices, and budgeting
  • Operational research and the application of principles of operational research in real cases
  • Operations management
  • Project management
  • Systems engineering
  • Quality Management
  • Engineering design processes
  • Logistics


Industrial engineering has embraced several developments of late, such as supply chain management, customer orientation, application of scientific decision making systems, continuous improvement, safety development, and stochastic modeling.  Industrial engineering has also ventured into diverse areas such as environmental sustainability, waste management, and pollution prevention and eco-management. Valuable information on industrial engineering and trends is available at JIEM, JIEI, EJIE, IJIEPR, IJAIE.
