Webinar: The Art of Data Acquisition and Analysis

Posted by PSIE Webmaster On 8:05 PM


It is a well known fact today that due to the enormous technological advancements, professionals today are more empowered to make better and concrete business decisions, make future predictions and build better products and services. But how do they do it? They do it using large sets of data acquired from the real world using modern computing technologies 

Data acquisition is an integral part of advanced modern systems. Today, it serves as the most important element in collecting data of important metrices in research, development, scientific experimentation, manufacturing, logistics, inventory management and supply chain management. The advent of sophisticated transducers, sensors, actuators and signal acquisition devices empower professionals, engineers, researchers, students and teachers to find new horizons in their investigations and make better decisions. But doing so requires essential knowledge of the basic associated tools and techniques used in data acquisition. The data is collected through sophisticated hardware and analyzed through powerful computing softwares.

For an industrial engineer knowledge of modern age high-end computing technologies is highly critical as it empowers them to build and improve manufacturing systems. The world of tomorrow is going to be full of sensors, actuators and mobile devices that will allow users to collect data from real world, analyze and make better informed decisions. 



So, to share this basic knowledge with our IE community Azeem Iqbal from Physlab, LUMS is hosting an online webinar session exclusively for the members of PSIE society. It is particularly targeted at professionals, researchers, teachers and students who would like to get an insight to modern data acquisition tools and techniques that are allowing companies worldwide in improving their productivity and efficiency.

Join PSIE today to not miss this opportunity.


Endeavors to uplift Industrial Engineering in Pakistan

Posted by PSIE Webmaster On 2:11 PM

The Physlab at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering recently completed its collaborative project with Karachi's Habib University. The project was to foster a new episode in sharing cutting-edge tools and techniques in modern, research-inspired science education and also to promote the development and transfer of indigenous instructional systems developed at the Physics Lab of the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering.

In this research oriented environment Azeem Iqbal worked as an industrial engineer and contributed right from planning to the timely execution of every phase of the project, from market surveys and purchasing, to manufacturing and assembling, testing and inspection, all within an intensively active period of two months. The project was worth around 3 million and was increasingly onerous. But as an industrial engineer it was his job to zealously contribute in making the project a success.

This is indeed beginning of a new chapter for Industrial Engineering community in Pakistan that should be understood by a common man that the word "industrial" does not refer only to the factories. It also refers to the systems that produce tangible as well as service oriented in-tangible outputs. The Industrial Engineers are not confined to factories, they are an integral part of every system setup in a country. And their job  is to bring about a change and make the process more efficient and productive.

Industrial/Systems Engineering is a world-wide rapidly developing field right now. And in conning years as the systems and industries grow more and more complex the need for individuals such as Industrial Engineers (who are trained in mathematics, engineering and management sciences) will exponentially increase. And soon we will be able to see how this field will generate productive and efficient outcomes for humanity.


What is the job of an industrial engineer?

Posted by PSIE Webmaster On 6:08 PM

Industrial engineering is about choices. Other engineering disciplines apply skills to very specific areas. IE gives practitioners the opportunity to work in a variety of businesses.
Many practitioners say that an industrial engineering education offers the best of both worlds: an education in both engineering and business.
The most distinctive aspect of industrial engineering is the flexibility it offers. Whether it’s shortening a rollercoaster line, streamlining an operating room, distributing products worldwide, or manufacturing superior automobiles, these challenges share the common goal of saving companies money and increasing efficiencies.
As companies adopt management philosophies of continuous productivity and quality improvement to survive in the increasingly competitive world market, the need for industrial engineers is growing. Why? Industrial engineers are the only engineering professionals trained specifically to be productivity and quality improvement specialists.
Industrial engineers figure out how to do things better. They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. They work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, energy and other commodities. This is why many industrial engineers end up being promoted into management positions.
Many people are misled by the term industrial engineer. It’s not just about manufacturing. It also encompasses service industries, with many IEs employed in entertainment industries, shipping and logistics businesses, and healthcare organizations.
The benefits of industrial engineering are widespread as indicated in three different slide shows.
IEs make processes better in the following ways:
  • More efficient and more profitable business practices
  • Better customer service and product quality
  • Improved efficiency
  • Increased ability to do more with less
  • Making work safer, faster, easier, and more rewarding
  • Helping companies produce more products quickly
  • Making the world safer through better designed products
  • Reducing costs associated with new technologies
