The industrial engineering is a new major in engineering part that has appeared in the first 19th century. At that time, this major is part of mechanical engineering. F.W. Taylor is father of industrial engineering that find the method to increase productivity by change the tool that to take material production. The next development is identification activity by some of worker the activity like take, catch, put, save etc. With this activity can be hoped to minimalize production time that is done by worker.
The Industrial Engineering always grows until this time. The definition of industrial engineering according to IIE, industrial engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and skill in the mathematical, physical & social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis & design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems. In my opinion, Industrial engineering is the science that has vision to manage 5 M (Method, Machine, Material, Man, Money) to reach outcome maximally.
Industrial engineering has a various workspace from PPIC, QC, production supervisor etc. Actually, the bachelor of industrial engineering is educated become an entrepreneur or the man who can build company that useful for people. But whatever their profession depend on what did they choose. If the expert of mechanical engineering designs mechanical systems very well and the architect designs about building systems that strong, durable and good. So, an industrial engineering designs a manufacturing systems that efficient, effective and struggle to increase productivity for worker.I hope for you that you have entered an industrial engineering major to practice your science in your daily activities, to teach with writing and oral. Because with this method can make our science increasing and useful for ourselves or another persons. Since this time, be a good person with industrial engineering science.
