The area Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Systems (IEMS) in NITIE is formed because of a merger between two areas namely Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Systems.
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, social, and 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.
Concentrated originally in the ambience of production sector it has adapted well enough over the years to be highly useful in service sector as well. Large repertoire of analytical and heuristic tools and techniques evolved over the years have helped the discipline grow to its present state.
The prime of objectives of industrial engineering are:
The discipline supports the industry immensely in achieving its intended objectives of improving productivity and retain its customer centric focus in terms of product quality, delivery and cost. Industrial Engineering discipline while principally catering to thePGDIEprogram, meets the curriculum requirements of almost all other programs inNITIEto varying degrees.
Manufacturing Systems refers to the various methods of organizing production. Many types of manufacturing systems are in place, including assembly lines, computer-integrated manufacturing, additive manufacturing to current day Industrial IoT & Smart manufacturing (Industry 4.0). This area predominantly caters to the need of the newly introduced program in NITIE curriculum (PGDMM) and is in line with the ‘Make in India’ philosophy.
