The process of designing industrial systems is no easy task and there are many considerations to take into account when doing this type of planning.Industrial engineers play an important role in ensuring that systems are working in a correct manner and that they are regularly maintained without any risk of failing their managers.

Understanding what an industrial engineer does will help the business owner or manager decide exactly what characteristics to look at before hiring someone, and after the job is done.Evaluation of these systems is just as important as the design because the practice will eventually reflect the structure thereof.

Goals of industrial engineering

Industrial engineers are the only type of engineers in the field that are concerned with the productivity and quality improvement of industrial systems.Their focus falls on saving the business owner time, money materials, man-hours, and energy by securing their systems to function according to their needs.The term ‘industrial’ does not only refer to the bigger commercial sphere of businesses, but it also refers to any type of system design that has to be created,be it small organisation or bigger factory types.

Areas of specialisation in industrial engineering

Industrial engineering requires a sound knowledge of all things mathematical and physical, but it should not be limited to things alone.Engineers need to consider a number of aspects during the design of certain systems which will briefly be discussed. Industrial engineers require an aspect of accounting in order to be able to make accurate financial measurements and to communicate through the economic spectrum.They should be qualified to handle operations and project management in order to plan, organize, and motivate the resources in question during the design phase.They should concern themselves with operations research that will help them in making the correct analytical decisions and choices.Financial and management engineering will ensure that technical and financial methods are correctly implemented whilst at the same time adhering to management protocol as stated by the client’s company.Value, cost, and safety engineering will help the engineer to make effective style decisions in order to save time and money, and to make sure that the systems and its processes are safe to use by the workforce.An engineer should also be able to determine the quality of the system is exactly what the client needs so that it can last for a long time, and be maintained in an expert way.

Importance of industrial engineering

Industrial engineering is important to businesses, small and large, in the sense that the create systems which lessen financial cost, but increase financial profit.These engineers are the people who ensure that inanimate objects obey the laws of physics, but also that people in larger organisational groups can work together with these types of systems.Industrial engineering plays an important role, especially in public health sectors, to produce quality manufacturing whilst at the same time achieving efficiency by implementing a disciplineto which machines, systems, and people adhere to in the long run.

This area of engineering is in charge of dealing with studying and application of electricity, electromagnetism and electronics.In the following years, the recording and broadcasting media introduced electronics to people, and made it a part of an everyday life.The cost of electronics went drastically down when the transistors and integrated circuit were invented, which made the electronic items affordable for almost everyone.

As the technology evolved, so did the electrical engineering, and it became divided into many subfields. Electronics, telecommunications, digital computers, radio-frequency engineering, power engineering, signal processing, microelectronics, control systems, and instrumentation, are all areas of electrical engineering.

Usually, Electrical engineers have a masters degree in electronic or electrical engineering. In practice, engineers usually own professional certification and they can also be a part of a professional body, which include the Institution of Engineering and Technology, as well as the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. They can be employed in quite a wide range of industries, and the range of their skills is usually wide as well. For example, they can be skilled in basic circuit theory, but they can likewise possess the skills that are required for a project manager. Furthermore, the level of knowledge of the equipment, that electrical engineers can operate with, is very high, and they can usually work with a simple voltmeter, but they are also quite skilled in working with a high end analyzer or with a complicated manufacturing or design softwares.

History of electrical engineering

Many scientists and inventors have played an important role in the development of electronic and radio technology. In the 1850s, James Clerk Maxwell had proven the existence of connections between different forms of electromagnetic radiation,and that included the possibility of invisible waves that travel through the air, which are today known as radio waves. In 1888, Heinrich Hertz has performed an experiment that hasconfirmed Maxwell's theory. He has used a spark-gap transmitter, and detected radio waves with the use of simple electrical devices. Soon after, other scientists have experimented with radio waves, and have managed to create a transmitter and a detector of radio waves, and it was in 1901, when Guglielmo Marconi managed to successfully transmit the radio wave signals across the Atlantic, covering a distance of 2,100 miles.

It was in the year of 1897, when Karl Ferdinand Braun presented an oscilloscope, which contained the cathode ray tube, which was the turning point of the development of the technology that came up with the electronic television.

The diode was invented in 1904, by John Fleming, and only two years later, the triode was invented by Lee De Forest and Robert von Lieben.

In 1920 Albert Hull has invented the Magnetron, in 1920, which allowed Percy Spencer to invent the microwave oven in 1946. The Magnetron also allowed the British army to develop the world’s first radar, under the supervision of Dr Wimperis, in 1936.

It was Konrad Zuse, who managed to create, with the use of electromechanical parts, the first fully functional and programmable computer, called Z3, and it was presented in 1941.Only two years later, Tommy Flowers had presented the first fully functional, electronic, digital and programmable computer, and he named it Colossus. The era of computing began in 1946 with the presentation of the ENIAC, which was designed and built by John Mauchly and John Presper.It was this computer’s arithmetic performance that offered the engineers a chance to develop brand new technologies, which allowed the creation of the Apollo program that landed astronauts on the Moon.
