Research activities in industrial engineering at Ecole Centrale Paris are organized within Laboratoire Génie Industriel (EA 2606). Several educational programs are coordinated by the lab.
The main scientific challenge of industrial engineering is to "master the design and management of complex systems".
- To Master means modeling, simulating, optimizing, sizing, specifying ...
- Design is concieved in terms of feasibility, utility, usability, operability, maintenability
- Management is viewed through performance, value creation, risk, safety,
- Complex systems are tackled either as technical, organizationnal, operationnal, informational, decisionnal, tactic, strategic... systems
