15+ Industrial Engineering Books for Free! [PDF]

With the sole purpose of providing new information to our readers, we decided to create a new list of free books on Industrial Engineering. This is a subject of great application and usefulness in today’s world, so we have created a compendium of texts in PDF format to facilitate your access to information.

By definition, Industrial Engineering is the branch of engineering responsible for analyzing, interpreting, understanding, designing, programming and controlling production and logistics systems in order to manage, implement and define optimization strategies to obtain the maximum performance of processes for the creation of goods or to provide services.

By conviction, Industrial Engineering is a tool that encompasses the knowledge of several disciplines, whose purpose is to integrate techniques and technologies in favor of a competent, qualified and safe production.

Frederick Taylor is known as the father of Industrial Engineering, who earned a degree in mechanical engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. In addition, Taylor obtained several patents for his inventions, and his books entitled, «Shop Management» and «The Principles of Scientific Management» published in 1900, were the beginning of Industrial Engineering.

Our list is composed of more than 15 books on Industrial Engineering in PDF format, in which you can read about the most relevant points of this discipline. From our list we have included books in Spanish and Portuguese for you to read in the language of your preference.

All books have been made available for free distribution or are in the public domain.
