Revolution Needed in Industrial Engineering to Make It More Effective

The objective is to make Industrial Engineering more effective. Industrial Engineering needs a Revolution. Industrial Engineering is about Optimisation. However presently this optimization is only applied to factory set up. Optimisation is needed everywhere. And Optimisation must be applied in a creative way and not by predetermined procedures. Finally Optimisation needs to be seen as a mindset and not as a methodology. Basically Industrial Engineering needs drastic changes in 3 different directions. Firstly Industrial Engineering needs to get applied everywhere. Secondly Industrial Engineering needs to be understood as a Mindset, not as a Methodology. Finally Industrial Engineering needs to be become more creative, with lots of ideas. And this change has to happen fast and quickly. Hence it can only be termed as a revolution. Academicians in Industrial Engineering must shed their inhibitions and embrace the fact that Optimisation is needed everywhere. Secondly Optimisation can be done in a creative manner. Finally, Optimisation is a Mindset and cannot be reduced to a Methodology. Of course there could be resistance to change. But change is progress. After all even Industrial Engineering invention and discovery was a change. Hence this break from past in Industrial Engineering is a change that needs to be embraced and welcomed. It requires unshackled mind and free spirit to incite and instigate a Revolution in Industrial Engineering.
