A Process Outlook for Industrial Engineering

Course Description

The main objective of the course is to familiarize the IE freshmen with the profession by introducing the basic notion of process. Industrial engineers visualize any systems as a collection of physical and abstract things, each of which are described by a process and these interrelated processes become crucial in the way system functions. Topics related to design of processes and process improvement, as well as notions of performance evaluation are covered and relations to decision making concepts are outlined. Throughout the course simple examples from daily life, as well as more complex examples from the service and manufacturing industries are used.

Taught by Prof. Nesim Erkip.
