Industrial engineering refers to the production of any economic good within an economy. As such, it is a very diverse field of engineering. Industries are grouped into three different categories: Primary Industries, Secondary Industries, and Tertiary Industries. Primary industries take resources directly from the planet, secondary industries manufacture products with the resources obtained from primary industries, and tertiary industries are composed of the services that run our society (education, healthcare). Industrial engineers in these categories develop complex systems made up of humans, knowledge, equipment, energy, and materials.
