Industrial Engineering is an extensive field of study consisting of diverse scientific disciplines with interfaces to various fields of study of science, engineering and management. With the help of mathematical models, computer simulations, and heuristics it helps to optimise processes in both production and services sectors across all industry verticals. If one characteristic of Industrial Engineering has to be picked up for special mention, then it is the capability of the Industrial Engineer to integrate the contributions of all other engineering disciplines into a final, functional and marketable product, at the lowest possible cost, by using system knowledge and understanding. Thus it is industrial engineering which when practised with all the right principles it is endowed with, helps enhance the competitiveness of firm in particular and the industry in general. Similarly, Technology Management plays a key role in national competitiveness by giving a country a competitive edge via deliberating on all three critical value dimensions - Creating, Capturing, and Delivering value through technology. It lays emphasis on technology as the core differentiator for the organisation and identifies paths to leverage the knowledge of both intangible and tangible products and processes to improve organisation's performance through building identification, implementation and commercialization capabilities and competencies in the dynamic environment.
Understanding the growing importance of Industrial Engineering and Technology Management, National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE), Mumbai, announces two days National Conference on Industrial Engineering and Technology Management (NCIETM 2018) on 30 November to 01 December, 2018.
|Special call for cases and best practices in Industry and Academics.|
National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) is a premier academic institute of higher learning established in 1963. NITIE has travelled a long way in its endeavour to reach excellence in various aspects of Industrial Engineering. It has been providing solutions for problems in the areas of Industrial Engineering, Operations Management, Environment management and Information Technology Management, covering the Human-machine interface, enhancing the productivity and contribute towards the organizational development, be it private, public, government and society at large
