The term ‘production engineering’ refers to a combination of manufacturing technology and engineering sciences with management science. Individuals who are interested in this subject are known as production engineers and have a broad knowledge of engineering practices. The goal of this discipline is to complete the production process in a smooth and economic way.
Production engineering includes the application of casting, machining processing, joining processes, metrology, machine tools, machining systems and machine design and manufacturing. The discipline overlaps with other fields such as manufacturing engineering and industrial engineering.
In industry, once the product design process is finished, production engineers focus on the ergonomics of the product as well as on operation research, materials management and production planning.
Production engineers have different skills and should be able to scale and integrate resources; design, implement and refine products, services and processes; make correct use of math and statistics; incorporate concepts and quality techniques; stay up to date with technological developments; manage and optimise flow, and predict and analyse the demand.
