To accomplish this, the division performs job audits and ensures positions are properly classified; establishes new classes and determines pricing levels; conducts classification and compensation studies; conducts research on classification and pay matters; conducts organizational reviews; establishes compensation and classification policies, procedures and guidelines; participates in collective bargaining wage negotiations; and develops salary adjustment recommendations for excluded managerial employees. The division recruits and examines applicants in accordance with merit principles, advises departments and other personnel on requirements and resources to fill personnel needs, provides advice on developing appropriate selection interviews, researches and develops and maintains economic, compensation and related data in support of personnel activities, conducts initial orientation of new employees and develops, and coordinates the implementation and administration of benefits and awards programs. ISWC believes that the people who work for the City and County of Honolulu are our most important asset and their safety our greatest responsibility. The Training Branch plans, develops, and implements personnel development and training programs to increase employee productivity; prepares employees of the City and County of Honolulu to assume broader responsibilities; and improves the efficiency, economy, and quality of public service provided by employees.
Industrial Revolution[ edit ] There is a general consensus among historians that the roots of the Industrial Engineering Profession date back to the Industrial Revolution.
The technologies that helped mechanize traditional manual operations in the textile industry including the Flying shuttlethe Spinning jennyand perhaps most importantly the Steam engine generated Economies of scale that made Mass production in centralized locations attractive for the first time.
The concept of the production system had its genesis in the factories created by these innovations. The efforts of James Watt and Matthew Boulton led to the first integrated machine manufacturing facility in the world, including the implementation of concepts such as cost control systems to reduce waste and increase productivity and the institution of skills training for craftsmen.
The book includes subjects such as the time required to perform a specific task, the effects of subdividing tasks into smaller and less detailed elements, and the advantages to be gained from repetitive tasks. Under this system, individual parts were mass-produced to tolerances to enable their use in any finished product.
The result was a significant reduction in the need for skill from specialized workers, which eventually led to the industrial environment to be studied later.
He earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Steven's University and earned several patents from his inventions. His books, Shop Management and The Principles of Scientific Management which were published in the early s, were the beginning of Industrial Engineering.
With an abiding faith in the scientific method, Taylor's contribution to "Time Study" sought a high level of precision and predictability for manual tasks. They categorized the elements of human motion into 18 basic elements called therbligs.
This development permitted analysts to design jobs without knowledge of the time required to do a job. These developments were the beginning of a much broader field known as human factors or ergonomics. In Henry Laurence Gantt developed the Gantt chart which outlines actions the organization along with their relationships.
This chart opens later form familiar to us today by Wallace Clark. Ford reduced the assembly time of a car more than hours to 1. In addition, he was a pioneer of the economy of the capitalist welfare "welfare capitalism" and the flag of providing financial incentives for employees to increase productivity.
Comprehensive quality management system Total quality management or TQM developed in the forties was gaining momentum after World War II and was part of the recovery of Japan after the war. The American Institute of Industrial Engineering was formed in The early work by F.
Taylor and the Gilbreths was documented in papers presented to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as interest grew from merely improving machine performance to the performance of the overall manufacturing process; most notably starting with the presentation by Henry R.
Towne - of his paper The Engineer as An Economist In the seventies, with the penetration of Japanese management theories such as Kaizen and KanbanJapan realized very high levels of quality and productivity. These theories improved issues of quality, delivery time, and flexibility.
Companies in the west realized the great impact of Kaizen and started implementing their own Continuous improvement programs. In the nineties, following the global industry globalization process, the emphasis was on supply chain management and customer-oriented business process design.
Theory of constraints developed by an Israeli scientist Eliyahu M. Goldratt is also a significant milestone in the field. Compared to other engineering disciplines[ edit ] Engineering is traditionally decompositional.Introduction.
