Transcript of Industrial & Systems Engineering (OFFICIAL)

Industrial Engineers are expected to have employment growth of 14 percent over the projections decade, for all occupations. As firms look for new ways to reduce costs and raise productivity, they increasingly will turn to Industrial Engineers to develop more efficient processes and reduce costs, delays, and waste.

Why ISE?: ISE offers flexibility in the work field and allows you to use your creativity and analytical skills to create or improve processes to make them more efficient. I like the fact that there is high demand for industrial engineers. I enjoy working directly with people, and not many other engineering fields allow you to do that as much as ISE.

I love Industrial and Systems Engineering because it allows me to combine my passions for communication, critical thinking, and analysis. Each unique challenge focuses on improving a business, while interacting with employees of all levels. Even better, career opportunities are rarely limited by industry or location. As an ISE, I can be at the forefront of change and make a real difference in a company!

Why ISE?: After experiencing the different types of Engineering that the University of Florida had to offer, I decided upon ISE because of its practical uses, mathematical and logical background, and it’s degree of human interaction. Unlike many other Engineering degrees ISE’s are given the opportunity to experience a range of topics from finance to electrical engineering to building design. That along with level of person to person interaction really attracted me to the ISE department.

Why ISE?:I like to describe ISE as the perfect balance of business and engineering. From industries to types of roles ISE's play in an organization I love the variety and flexibility this degree offers. This career field is fast paced and provides endless opportunities to learn and grow.

When I came to UF, I had no clue what major I wanted to be, so I chose Mathematics by default. After my freshman year, I began to look into Industrial & Systems Engineering. It was quickly clear that I had found the right major for me. I fell in love with efficiency, with the math and logic involved, and with the variety of applications. ISE has motivated me to always strive for better.
Example of an IE's job (Activity):
Phlebotomy clinic (drawing blood clinic)
How would you (what things would you take into account) determine the number of full time employees (FTES) needed to staff the clinic?
Determine duties of phlebotomist
Check-in/out times
Blood draw time
Set-up/Clean-up time
Patient volumes/arrivals
A calculator was created in excel that allowed management to input the upcoming patient volumes and the number of employees needed was determined. This tool allows management to accurately staff their clinics, saving them money and making them efficient.
Questions to consider:
Disney currently does not have enough chairs for every guest to sit on during the peak lunch period (11am-2pm). If Disney is able to decrease the lunch wait times and increase the number of seats available, they can improve the guest experience, as well as make more money.
For this case study divide into teams to solve this problem as recently hired Industrial Engineers
Engineering Economy:
Costs of food, labor, operating cost of kitchen equipment etc. Increase profit by reduce wasted food and promoting operational efficiency.

Just in time preparation of food to match demand for time of day. Planned kitchen inspection to maintain clean standards.

Lean/ Supply:
Number of registers is the bottleneck, add additional registers and innovative seating strategies.

Operations Research:
Use meal coupon incentives and/or plan entertainment to shift peak demand.

Project Management:
Start implementation in small pilot runs (ie. one diner at a time rather than whole park)
Things to take into account:
Case Study (Team Activity):
Disney Peak Times

Pedro Macellaro
Unlike others, I still did not know what industry I wanted to work in, so I also wanted to pick a major that would allot me different opportunities in different industries. Fortunately, an engineering professor came to my high school to encourage students to study engineering. When he described industrial engineering I knew it was the perfect major for me.

Maria Cepeda
Why ISE?: I chose ISE because I was interested in how mathematical concepts and algorithms are applied to business topics such as Supply Chain Management and Operations Research, not realizing the extent to which the background would give me an edge over my colleagues in industry. ISE allows us to view any business from an upper-level perspective and gives us the tools necessary to make crucial decisions within both small and large organizations. It is truly an interesting, unique field of study

Brittany Kemp
Engineering Economy:
What are the costs, and how can you increase profit?

How can you improve or maintain the quality of the food served?

What are some bottlenecks you can identify, and what do they affect?

Operations Research:
How can you serve more guests without increasing resources or infrastructure?

Project Management:
What steps can you take to minimize risks in solution implementation?
I chose ISE so that I could have a technical career while being able to interact with people on an everyday basis. Also, I strive to be efficient in my everyday life, so majoring in something focused on improving processes and efficiency seems more than fitting for me!

I chose ISE because of the versatility it provides with career paths. It allows you to go into virtually any industry and solve vastly different problems. ISE takes the scientific problem-solving method used by all engineers in their respective disciplines and applies it to all problems encountered in any industry. This, along with the combination of business and engineering makes it the most versatile and interesting degree available.

I believe that ISE is one of the most intriguing and practical degrees. Engineering provides job security, while Industrial and Systems provides job flexibility. I am happy knowing that I will be able to approach a situation with technical competence using critical thinking; as this will enable me to
do just about anything, in any industry.

I love the combination of qualitative and quantitative skills. ISEs have the knowledge to identify real world problems, create optimized systems to fix it, and analyze how it can impact society. In industry, the job opportunities for ISEs are not only diverse but numerous. I love making things easier, better, and more efficient; which, in essence, is the base of ISE.

Zack Jenkins
Why ISE?: I have always loved solving problems and analyzing systems so as to save a couple precious minutes in my or any one else’s day. I have a little bit of that Engineer in me that likes numbers and science and a bit of that business student that needs to interact with other people. All of this ended up leading me to ISE. Furthermore, ISE provides a great starting platform to go into almost any field and allows you to always keep learning about new things.
