Industrial Engineering Training is an on-site 20-hour program, normally presented in three consecutive days, which provides new engineers, supervisors, non-IEs, and other technical and non-technical personnel a grounding in classical Industrial Engineering methods and procedures.
The program relies heavily on interactive demonstrations, teamwork, and class exercises. The program uses numerous examples of real plant scenes in fabrication and assembly operations. The overall program consists of several "modules" that may added or deleted to produce a custom program of three- to five-day duration as desired by the client.
The training will cover the following subjects:
Relationship of operator method to output
Advantages and uses of work measurement
The work measurement model
