Brain Storming Industrial Engineering Which Is Creative, Out of Box and Lateral

Brain Storming is a creativity technique by which efforts are made to find conclusion to a problem by gathering list of ideas spontaneously contributed by each of members. Industrial Engineering is optimisation of complex processes, systems and organisations by developing, improving and implementing systems of people, money, knowledge, information and equipment. Essentially Industrial Engineering is all about Optimisation. Can Brain Storming be used for Optimisation? Brain Storming is a group creativity technique by which efforts are made to find conclusion to a problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed to by members. Brainstorming is a situation where a group of people meet to generate ideas and solution around a specific domain by removing inhibitions. People are allowed to think freely and suggest as many new ideas as possible. These ideas are noted without criticism and after brain storming ideas are evaluated. There are several techniques that complement, supplement and are perhaps congruent in overlapping sort of way. These techniques must be used to enhance brainstorming techniques to make them more effective. Some of these techniques are discussed here – Out of Box Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Right Brain Thinking, Creative Thinking, Divergent Thinking and so on. Industrial Engineering is focused on optimisation through predetermined procedures and that leads to one solution for a problem. No doubt this has a place in optimisation panaroma. But Optimisation is too wide a field. Hence you need Brain Storming Industrial Engineering.
