How to... Made a Video Resume

A very important information about the new forms of resume.

Project experience.

Our projects is based on explore new solutions to the energetic crisis that the world is suffering right now and need to be stopped. It´s called Renewable Energy, specifically we researched about Solar Energy Systems. There are various choice in Solar Energy Systems that can be used by anyone in Venezuela.
It's been an educational experience, where I discovered different solar energy systems that I can use without expending a lot, and also this type of energy is cheaper that normal electricity because you just need to invest on the installation of the system because later you don't have to pay a penny!

Going Green, real green.

Since the world contamination gets bigger and worse, everyone is concerning about what to do to find solutions to the huge problem that is destroying the big place that we live in, called WORLD.

Some people think that just with separating paper, plastic and organic material from each other is recycling and doing that it’s going to clean up all the mess, which is not.

At this point of contamination, bigger and smarter ideas must be born; ideas that would solve this huge problem from the root and not from the deathly results that we are watching every day.

Thinking in that proactive way, may result in better ideas like improving the usage of raw material and energy in a "green" way, in order to reduce the pollution and to stop the unmeasured use of nature raw material.

Although this kind of improvement also help in financial saved for an industry. Searching materials and energy efficiency, it could reduce cost in production lines and helping with the fight against this global care problem which is massive pollution.

The interesting webcast of IBM of Going Green, really help me out to reach better ideas in order to reduce contamination. No just recycling, but thinking hard and finding ideas that can be a magnificent innovation in this field.

In conclusion, Industrial Engineer the application of these ideas can be a breakthrough in order to improve, reducing the time in production lines and even the usage of the raw material.

Industrial Engineer. Definition + words definitions

Industrial engineering is also known as operations management, management science, systems engineering, or manufacturing engineering; a distinction that seems to depend on the viewpoint or motives of the user. Recruiters or educational establishments use the names to differentiate themselves from others. In healthcare, for example, industrial engineers are more commonly known as management engineers or health systems engineers.
One of the central principles in industrial engineering is the "system" concept. A system is any organization or business process in which people, materials, information, equipment, processes or energy interact in an integrated fashion. This high-level view of business operations enables industrial engineers to manage various industries. Therefore, industrial engineers apply their skills across a diverse set of sectors such as financial, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, logistics, aviation and education.
The term "industrial" in industrial engineering can be misleading. While the term originally applied to manufacturing, it has grown to encompass virtually all other industries and services as well. The various topics of concern to industrial engineers include management science, financial engineering, engineering management, supply chain management, process engineering, operations research, systems engineering, ergonomics, value engineering and quality engineering.
Whereas most engineering disciplines apply skills to very specific areas, industrial engineering is applied in virtually every industry (hence the term "industrial"). Examples of where industrial engineering might be used include designing a new loan system for a bank, streamlining operation and emergency rooms in a hospital, distributing products worldwide (referred to as Supply Chain Management), manufacturing cheaper and more reliable automobiles, and shortening lines (or queues) at a bank, hospital, or a theme park. Industrial engineers typically use computer simulation, especially discrete event simulation, for system analysis and evaluation.

Mislead/mĭs-lēd'/tr.v., -led, -lead•ing, -leads.
1. To lead in the wrong direction. The meaning of the speech wasn´t that, It was misled.
2. To lead into error of thought or action, especially by intentionally deceiving.

Streamline/strēm'līn'/ tr.v., -lined, -lin•ing, -lines.

Logistic in Industrial Engineer

Logistics is about the purchasing, transport, storage, distribution, warehousing of raw materials, semi-finished/work-in-process goods and finished goods. Managing all these activities efficiently and effectively for an organization is the main question at the back of the mind of any logistic engineer.

Logistics is generally a cost center service activity, but it provides value via improved customer satisfaction. It can quickly lose that value if the customer becomes dissatisfied. The end customer can include another process or work center inside of the manufacturing facility, a warehouse where items are stocked or the final customer who will use the product.

Another much more popular derivative and a complete usage of the logistic term which has appeared in recent years is the supply chain. The supply chain also looks at an efficient chaining of the supply / purchase and distribution sides of an organization. While Logistics looks at single echelons with the immediate supply and distribution linked up, supply chain looks at multiple echelons/stages, right from procurement of the raw materials to the final distribution of finished goods up to the customer. It is based on the basic premise that the supply and distribution activities if integrated with the manufacturing / logistic activities, can result in better profitability for the organization. The local minima of total cost of the manufacturing operation is getting replaced by the global minima of total cost of the whole chain, resulting in better profitability for the chain members and hence lower costs for the products.

"Logistics Engineering" as a discipline is also a very important aspect of systems engineering that includes reliability engineering. It is the science and process whereby reliability, maintainability, and availability are designed into products or systems. It includes the supply and physical distribution considerations above as well as more fundamental engineering considerations. For example, if we want to produce a system that is 95% reliable (or improve a system to achieve 95% reliability), a logistics engineer understands that total system reliability can be no greater than the least reliable subsystem or component. Therefore our logistics engineer must consider the reliability of all subcomponents or subsystems and modify system design accordingly. If a subsystem is only 50% reliable, one can concentrate on improving the reliability of that subsystem, design in multiple subsystems in parallel (5 in this case would achieve approximately 97% reliability of that subsystem), purchase and store spare subsystems for rapid change out, establish repair capability that would get a failed subsystem back in operation in the required amount of time, and/or choose any combination of those approaches to achieve the optimal cost vs. reliability solution. Then the engineer moves onto the next subsystem.

Logistics Engineers work with complex mathematical models that consider elements such as Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Mean Time To Failure (MTTF), Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), statistical distributions, queueing theory, and a host of other considerations. Obviously, logistics engineering is a complex science that considers tradeoffs in component/system design, repair capability, training, spares inventory, demand history, storage and distribution points, transportation methods, etc., to ensure the "thing" is where it's needed, when it's needed, and operating the way it's needed all at an acceptable cost.

Short Summary

Logistic is a very important field for Industrial Engineers, because it has a significant statement for us: manage time and money to produce more quality goods. It means that Industrial Engineer must study every line of production from the material supply to the product´s distribution even the product service for costumers; searching the most improvable use of money and time.

In the searching of new ways to improve time and money, Industrial Engineers should take productions times, in order to compare to real time productions and analyze the percentage of efficient time´s use. In this analysis, it can be determinate the problems and solutions in productions time, like if it´s needed to buy more machinery or it´s needed a new distribution of them.

Also is important to know that everything in Industry is a chain; every action has a result. So, when a production line it´s been improved, every little details matters and be on mind that change even the littlest thing can react in chain and result in worst problems.
