Unlike other Engineers who specialize in different branches of engineering, an Industrial/Production Engineer is a specialist in production or manufacturing processes involved in any field of Engineering. He is like a general manager who oversees production or manufacturing operations. His main job is to ensure the optimal production at economically viable cost as per the desired quality standard.
