Introduction to Industrial Engineering

The following course inIntroduction to Industrial Engineering is provided in its entirety by Atlantic International University's "Open Access Initiative" which strives to make knowledge and education readily available to those seeking advancement regardless of their socio-economic situation, location or other previously limiting factors. The University's Open Courses are free and do not require any purchase or registration, they are open to the public.

The course in Introduction to Industrial Engineering contains the following:

  • Lessons in video format with explaination of theoratical content.
  • Complementary activities that will make research more about the topic , as well as put into practice what you studied in the lesson. These activities are not part of their final evaluation.
  • Texts supporting explained in the video.

The Administrative Staff may be part of a degree program paying up to three college credits. The lessons of the course can be taken on line Through distance learning. The content and access are open to the public according to the "Open Access" and " Open Access " Atlantic International University initiative. Participants who wish to receive credit and / or term certificate , must register as students.


Lesson 1: HISTORY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the optimization of complex processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes. While industrial engineering is a traditional and longstanding engineering discipline subject to (and eligible for) professional engineering licensure in most jurisdictions, its underlying concepts overlap considerably with certain business-oriented disciplines such as operations management.

Lesson 2: EVOLUTION OF ENGINEERING TO MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Engineering: The application of math and science by which the properties of matter and the sources of energy in nature are made useful to people

Engineers apply math and science for the betterment of society through:

 Design

 Manufacturing

 Research & Development

 Management

 Continual Improvement

 Logistics

Lesson 3: THE MECHANICAL ENGINEERING AND ITS DIMENSIONS

Aerospace engineers design, test, and supervise the manufacture of aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles. Those who work with aircraft are called aeronautical engineers, and those working specifically with spacecraft are astronautical engineers. Aerospace engineers develop new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and space exploration, often specializing in areas such as structural design, guidance, navigation and control, instrumentation and communication, and production methods.

They also may specialize in a particular type of aerospace product, such as commercial aircraft, military fighter jets, helicopters, spacecraft, or missiles and rockets, and may become experts in aerodynamics, thermodynamics, celestial mechanics, propulsion, acoustics, or guidance and control systems.

Lesson 5: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING PROFILE, ITS IMPORTANCE AND APPLICATION

“Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such system”.

Lesson 6: LABOR AND APPLICATION OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

 Scientist: Understand why our world behaves the way it does (“laws of nature”)  Study the world as it is  Thinkers

 Engineers: Apply established scientific theories and principles to develop cost-effective solutions to practical problems  Cost effective  Consideration of design trade-offs (esp. resource usage)  Minimize negative impacts (e.g. environmental and social cost)  Practical problems  Problems that matter to people  Change the world  Doers

Lesson 8: ERGONOMICS

Ergonomics is a solution finding method for questions like these:


_ How can human body dimensions be applied to car seat design?
_ What is the proper height for kitchen counters?
_ How can traffic lights be programmed for optimal urban traffic flow throughout the day?
_ How can stereo receiver displays and controls be coded to effectively define their respective functions?
_ How can the material and design of swim suits for competition be improved for minimal water resistance?
_ How should computer software and screens work and look best to fit human cognitive capabilities?
