Industrial engineers apply science, mathematics, and engineering methods to complex system integration and operations.
Because they deal with these large and complex systems, Industrial Engineers need to have knowledge and skills in a wide variety of disciplines.
They also need the ability to work well with people and have a broad, systems perspective.
IEs use their knowledge and skills to improve systematic processes through the use of statistical analysis, problem-solving, computer simulation, design, planning, operations management, and interpersonal communication.
In this article, we will examine how industrial engineers assist the oil and gas industry.
