Industrial Engineering with the study of Production Planning & Control and Optimization (Also called operations research). Production planning includes study of demand forecasting, preparation of long term and short term plans, scheduling of machines and methods of inventory control. In optimization, various techniques of cost minimization and profit maximization are studied. These techniques include linear programming, critical path method and queuing models among others. Entire production industry uses planning, control and optimization techniques developed in this subject.
This subject contains marks weightage of 6 to 7 in GATE Mechanical Engineering. This course contains gate study material for Industrial Engineering which includes online recorded video lectures, online test series, e-books prepared by IIT and IISc graduates.
