The main objective of production engineering is integration of technology with management in planning and controlling the design, development and operation of manufacturing system. Rapid advance in manufacturing technology, with computer controlled process and management information systems that effectively enhance a specialized training in manufacturing and production that cater to the growing requirements of industries both in india and abroad.
Production Engineering is a combination of manufacturing technology with management science. A production engineer typically has a wide knowledge of engineering practices and is aware of the management challenges related to production. The goal is to accomplish the production process in the smoothest, most-judicious and most-economic way.
Production Engineering encompasses the application of castings,machining processing, joining processes, metal cutting & tool design, metrology, machine tools, machiningsystems, automation, jigs and fixtures, die and mould design, material science, design of automobile parts, and machine designing and manufacturing. Production engineering also overlaps substantially with manufacturing engineering and industrial engineering.
