    We are a non-profit organization dedicated solely towards developing the industrial engineering community of Pakistan. We are striving to spread the awareness about the field and create a network of our professionals both nationally and internationally.

  • Membership Information

    Pakistan Society of Industrial Engineers is a dedicated non-profit organization which has a mission to serve the industrial engineers of Pakistan. We are striving to create a community of IEs of our country and will be linking them up with the international communities of Industrial Engineers.

  • Student Chapter at your University

    We are looking to develop the industrial engineering community of Pakistan. Our aim is to gather all the students and professional IEz. Our organization is looking to not only form a network of industrial engineers within Pakistan but we are also looking to connect the Pakistani industrial engineers who are residing outside of our country. We wish to provide them with latest from the field updates as well as receive their feeds related to latest developments in the field outside.

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Industrial Engineering

    We have prepared a special section in our website dedicated to answering most frequently asked questions about the field of Industrial Engineering specially for Pakistani Industrial Engineers who mostly require a lot of assistance in understanding their role in industries and what kind of job they are to perform.

What is the job of an industrial engineer?

Posted by PSIE Webmaster On 6:08 PM No comments

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
