En el video que vimos durante la clase aprendimos bastante sobre el progreso que surge en la producción en masa. Como pionero de esta acción tenemos a Henry Ford ya que el busco formas de mejorar la producción de sus vehículos y con esto se entro a una nueva era de la Ingeniería Industrial. Se detallaba como Henry Ford empieza a modificar el sistema, haciendo toma de tiempos de cada operación a realizar y observando que movimientos tenía que realizar el operador para concluir la tarea. Al modificar este sistema observo que se perdía demasiado tiempo en buscar las piezas y la solución fue hacer una red de cadenas y transporte. Así mismo también fue el que creo las líneas de ensamblaje en el año 1913, esto consistía que ahora el producto en este caso el carro se movilizaba adonde el trabajador estaba y este realizaba la misma tarea en su punto de trabajo, al realizar esto ya no se requería de mano de obra especializada. Al querer aumentar su producción cada vez más fue observando que otros cambios podían hacer, por consecuencia creo lo que son los turnos de trabajo para que la producción no cesara. Algo que le beneficio bastante en el pasado fue que el observo que habían bastante inmigrantes en el país en esa época, por lo tanto aprovecho esto para realizar una competencia dentro de los trabajadores. Otro punto importante es que los operarios tenía buena paga ya que le pagaba 5 dólares al día a cada trabajador, por lo tanto toda persona quería trabajar dentro de su empresa. Tanto fue el éxito de esto último que llego a tener 80,000 trabajadores. A medida el iba cambiando la forma de hacer las cosas, otras empresas europeas, como la Fiat y Renault fueron tomando nota de lo que estaba haciendo Ford y empezaron a copiar este sistema de producción. Otra cosa que se logro hacer en esta época es que se empezó a explotar los rasgos físicos de los operarios,…...

Industrial Engineering in South Africa

...wealthof a nation and industrial engineering As a student that ended up studying industrial engineering by chance, I have really had to learn about industrial engineering through (the usual) reading, and vacation work and exposure to other industrial engineers. From the knowledge presented to me from people’s kind words of boredom and the internet’s overloading of information, I have come to understand industrial engineering as this. It is an engineering whereby resources and processes are integrated into cohesive strategies, structures and systems for efficient and effective production of goods and services. It uses specialised knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical, behavioural, and economic and management fields and combines them with the principles and methods of engineering analyses and design to find optimal and practical solutions, which contribute to the creation of wealth. I have a vision. I have a vision that industrial engineering can solve many of South Africa’s problems. These problems, or let us rather term these challenges, are attracting new forms of foreign investment, creation and implementation of policies, amongst others to create jobs and grow the economy. The structure in order for this to happen is very important. South Africa at the moment is undergoing a huge change whereby new amendments are being done to all sectors of the economy. There is also a great need to stimulate entrepreneurship. Industrial engineering has the potential to......

Analysis and Optimization of the Manufacturing Processes Within a Truss Manufacturing Company Through the Application of Industrial Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Occupational Safety Principles and Techniques

...ANALYSIS AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES WITHIN A TRUSS MANUFACTURING COMPANY THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING, ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING, AND OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY PRINCIPLES AND TECHNIQUES by ROSMARDY FLORES NARANJO ABSTRACT In spite of remarkable improvements in recent decades, the construction industry and areas related continue to be one of the industries with the poorest safety records. Low statistics in environmental improvements can be also noticed. Organizations that have implemented improvements have integrated big efforts of owners, contractors, subcontractors, and designers. The truss industry is not an exception to this problematic. This industry, which is related directly to the home building industry and has boomed in recent decades, seems to have a lack of controls and regulations. Many of these problems may be linked, for example, to the lack of interest from management to improve and regulate such important areas as occupational safety and environmental hygiene. While past studies on occupational safety, environmental control, and quality control have been conducted in different areas of the construction industry, the truss industry and the owner’s impact on construction safety have not been previously investigated. This paper presents the results of a study within a truss manufacturing company, which was evaluated and studied in the areas of occupational safety, environmental control, and quality control. Data were......

...UNIT 1 INTRODUCTION CONCEPT The term ‘Industrial Relations’ comprises of two terms: ‘Industry’ and ‘Relations’. “Industry” refers to “any productive activity in which an individual (or a group of individuals) is (are) engaged”. By “relations” we mean “the relationships that exist within the industry between the employer and his workmen.” | | | | The term industrial relations explain the relationship between employees and management which stem directly or indirectly from union-employer relationship. Industrial relations are the relationships between employees and employers within the organizational settings. The field of industrial relations looks at the relationship between management and workers, particularly groups of workers represented by a union. Industrial relations are basically the interactions between employers, employees and the government, and the institutions and associations through which such interactions are mediated. The term industrial relations have a broad as well as a narrow outlook. Originally, industrial relations were broadly defined to include the relationships and interactions between employers and employees. From this perspective, industrial relations cover all aspects of the employment relationship, including human resource management, employee relations, and union-management (or labor) relations. Now its meaning has become more specific and restricted. Accordingly, industrial relations pertains to the study and practice of collective...

...Construction Engineering This civil engineering branch deals with the planning, construction and maintenance of structures. Construction engineering is the planning and execution of designs from site development, environmental, structural, transportation and structural engineers. They must ensure that the plans that have been designed by other engineers are implemented to their exact specifications. Construction engineers will supervise field work during the entire project. They are in a sense a cross between an engineer and manager as they will oversee the project from start to finish and handle any problems that come up throughout the duration of the project. Structural Engineering This branch of civil engineering encompasses the structural analysis and design of structures. It is the responsibility of the structural engineer to analyze and design a structure that will safely bear or resist the stresses, forces and loads. The design must satisfy the project specifications while meeting all safety regulations. The structure must endure massive loads as well as natural disasters and climate changes. Geotechnical Engineering In geotechnical engineering the engineer studies soil, foundations and bearing capacities. The engineer will study the behavior of the earth materials and how they will affect a structure that is to be constructed. They will also evaluate pre-existing structures that are showing signs of problems with the earth materials under or near the......

...altogether less strongly influenced by temperature than metals and even then only at particularly high temperatures. Ceramics offer equally high benefits in terms of corrosion and abrasion resistance. Because of these advantages, we find technical ceramics wherever we go. Without ceramic insulators, many household devices would not function. Likewise, without insulators and safety devices made of technical ceramics, a reliable electricity supply would be unthinkable. Ceramic substrates and parts are the basis for components and modules in all areas of electronics, while in machine and plant construction sliding and bearing elements provide low wear, corrosion-free function. Ceramic construction and insulation materials are indispensable to the industrial furnaces used in high-temperature technology. Even these few examples make clear that technical ceramics have an important role to play in today's world. Ceramic components are often, however, not visible at the first glance. Nevertheless they play a crucial role, both in conventional applications and in innovative products. The potential of technical ceramics has not yet been exhausted. Electrical ceramic insulators are used in applications that require a non-conductive rigid component and/or source for heat dissipation. Although all ceramic formulations can be used in electrical applications, Steatite and Alumina (all grades) are the most common choice due to their excellent electrical properties. Electrical......

...Task 1 Why does engineering equipment fail, what happens when it does and what can we do about it? Equipment’s fails because certain parts of it fail first and that prevents the whole process from working. It is important to understand the problem before any maintenance. There are a lot of reasons it could fail because of the age of the equipment and parts need to be changed or if the equipment vibrates nuts and bolts can be loosen and parts can fall apart. When this happens the machine needs to be stopped and maintained. Age is very important if the machine has been used for a very long time the efficiency and the quality wouldn’t be as good as a new one, a machine has a certain life span for example on a car the timing belt must be replaced after every 50,000 miles. Wear could lead to a fault in a machine because parts come into contact with each other for example a cars break pad. Corrosion in certain materials takes longer than others like aluminium, when a part of a machine corrodes it degrade and can cause failures. Raw materials such as oil and compressed air can run equipment’s. If something different unwanted to the equipment is in it, it can affect the way the machine works. For example water in a petrol tank will cause a car to break down and this is a fouling. Lack of maintenance can cause a fail, routine maintenance such as cleaning and lubrication. This cause for example in a factory that is manufacturing can will stop the line and check the cars in that line......

...areas of business, industry, and government and are the end result of methods engineering, equitable time standards, and efficient work design. Also, as machines and equipment grow increasingly complex and semiautomated if not fully automated, it is increasingly important to study both the manual components and the cognitive aspects of work as well as the safety of the operations. The operator must perceive and interpret large amounts of information, make critical decisions, and control these machines both quickly and accurately. In recent years, jobs have shifted gradually from manufacturing to the service sector. In both sectors, there is increasingly less emphasis on gross physical activity and a greater emphasis on information processing and decision making, especially via computers and associated modern technology. The same efficiency and work design tools are the keys to productivity improvement in any industry, business, or service organization, whether in a bank, a hospital, a department store, a railroad, or the postal system. Furthermore, success in a given product line or service leads to new products and innovations. It is this accumulation of successes that drives hiring and the growth of an economy. The reader should be careful not to be swayed or intimidated by the latest jargon offered as a cure-all for an enterprise’s lack of competitiveness. Often these fads sideline the sound engineering and management procedures that, when properly utilized, represent the......

...Central Philippine University Jaro, Iloilo City School of Graduate Studies ACCIDENT CAUSATION THEORIES AND CONCEPTS (MENGR 711) In Partial Fulfilment to the Requirements of the Degree of Master in Engineering Submitted by: *** MENGR 711 Student Submitted to: *** Professor Date Submitted: October 1, 2015 All of us individuals must be obliged to be aware why accidents do happen in construction. Generally it is because of physical hazards which includes excessive noise and vibration, inadequate lighting, exposure to radiation, slippery surfaces, etc., environmental hazards is another reason such pollution, storm, earthquakes, etc., as well as human factors, even no safety regulations and lastly poor communication within, between, and among various trades working on a job site. An accident is defined as an unintended and unplanned occurrence that results in a negative effect. Accident causation theories have been developed in an attempt to predict accidents and thus prevent their occurrence. So far there has not been an accident prevention theory that has been universally accepted. They have however served in some preventative measures in some cases. For the record, an accident is technically anything that happens by chance or misfortune. This definition provides two important points. First, accidents are unavoidable as a whole; the chance of one occurring will virtually always be present. Second, the chance of an accident occurring......
