Industrial Engineers provide support to improve the day-to-day operational efficiency of our Manufacturing facilities. They analyze results of current manufacturing processes to determine which are candidates for improvement. Industrial Engineers develop the production process requirements, which include developing production standards during setup, changeovers, and throughput, or the amount of time it takes for the product to complete the manufacturing process. Next, they determine the optimal workflow to achieve an efficient, cost effective process between the food product, the manufacturing equipment used, and the Publix associate performing the task. The Industrial Engineers implement the new best practice, making sure to document and standardize it into current Manufacturing processes.
