What Does an Industrial Engineering Technician Do?

America’s factories are efficient – and that’s thanks, in part, to industrial engineering technicians. Through keen observation and creative thinking, they help employees and systems operate more effectively. They help industrial engineers come up with ways to improve efficiency and help establish standard procedures. They also plan workflows, conduct studies, prepare machinery and equipment layouts, help businesses minimize inventory costs, and analyze production costs with safety and efficiency in mind.

Industrial engineering technicians are needed for factories, offices, stores, repair shops, health care facilities and landfills. Because they are valuable to so many different types of businesses, their responsibilities may vary, depending on the employer.
