Production Systems

Come help us improve the complex socio-economic systems that keep a global economy moving and growing. Our industrial engineers explore the governing principles of production systems. We do this with the goal of producing the goods we need in an affordable and sustainable manner.

Our students and faculty have at their disposal a robust set of tools which include:

  • modeling
  • performance analysis
  • bottleneck identification
  • lean buffer design
  • product quality
  • customer demand satisfaction
  • and simulation

Since the Industrial Revolution, production engineers have worked to improve the flow of materials through our factories. This includes:

  • plant layout
  • shop-floor control and scheduling
  • coordination of production and distribution activities
  • and production and inventory planning

Logistics

Keep the materials, products, labor, and services of a growing global economy moving. NC State industrial engineers focus on managing the flow of these resources throughout the supply chain. This includes:

  • determining which are the best locations for providing services or products produced
  • calculating the transportation for materials between these locations and the customer
  • controlling the inventory levels at different locations in the supply chain
  • and managing the operations of the products and services to be produced and delivered

Our students and faculty focus on designing systems that provide an excellent, consistent customer experience while keeping costs down through the efficient use of resources. We develop applications for a range of sectors including:

  • electronics manufacturing
  • remanufacturing and recycling
  • humanitarian logistics
  • and healthcare and transportation planning
