Lillian Evelyn Moller Gilbreth (1878-1972)

Lillian Evelyn Moller Gilbreth (1878-1972) spent her life advocating the application of psychology, and helped shape the development of applied psychology in the early 20th century. (Kelly & Kelly, 1990; Koppes, 1997; Perloff & Naman 1996).





At the University of California, Berkeley, she majored in psychology at Masters degree. Frank Gilbreth, a contracting engineer, her husband, recognized her keen insight of human behavior, her strong empathy and sympathy for individuals, and her genuine interest in psychology.

After marrying in 1904, Gilbreth immediately became her husband’s engineering apprentice and construction business partner. While constructing buildings, Gilbreth noted that engineers were addressing their technical problems scientifically but they appeared to be unaware that psychology had much to offer as a science. She believed that Taylor’s scientific management system neglected individual needs in the work setting. Gilbreth understood the importance of identifying the best motions to improve efficiency but she also wanted to know if those best motions provided the happiest result to those who used them. While Frank Gilbreth was studying the employee’s motions, Lillian was observing and analyzing the employee’s dedication to his/her job.


lillina Gilbreth prepared a doctoral dissertation n which she asserted that scientific management proponents should consider the perspectives and happiness of workers. Although the dissertation was viewed positively by the faculty, the Ph.D. was not conferred at the last minute by the Academic Senate because she failed to meet the requirement of a final year in residence. After publishing installments in an engineering periodical, she eventually published the dissertation as a book, The Psychology of Management (1914), which became one of the most influential textbooks on industrial relations.


Gilbreth subsequently enrolled in a doctoral program at Brown University. It was one of the first universities to acknowledge scientific management as a legitimate profession. Her second dissertation, The Elimination of Waste, was the application of psychology and scientific management to the work of classroom teachers. She was awarded a Ph.D. in psychology 1915.


In 1912, the Gilbreths gave up the construction business to become management consultants. Their consulting included implementing novel ideas for the time such as an employee suggestion box, rest periods, process charts, and alternative work. They redesigned jobs based on employee’s perspectives, a new approach for the emerging discipline of industrial psychology. They developed ways to employ physically handicapped workers so they could become productive community members. After Frank died in 1924, Lillian continued to consult and research applications of psychology for the next 45 years.

Her work was responsive to many issues, and was characterized by an underlying theme: Whenever possible, a human component must be included. Gilbreth’s writing on topics such as leadership, motivation, selection, job analysis, quality, promotions, group cooperation, training and nonfinancial incentives was at the forefront of many modern ideas of industrial and organizational psychology. She was pivotal in getting management to address personnel issues, and in doing so, attained recognition for psychology in the workplace.

According to her biographer, Edna Yost, Gilbreth would not want anyone to claim for her too great a part in the changes that have come in industry through the science of psychology. But even she could not name a single person who has had a greater influence in this field than she had. Personnel work today – a recognized department in all big industries and many small ones – is, at its best, the intelligent application of psychology in industry, which she first urged. (1943, p.117)

Gilbreth expanded the application of psychology to solve problems in areas such as office machine companies, hospitals, and sports. For example, she worked for General Electric and other appliance manufacturing companies to assist in redesigning kitchen and household appliances. Two of her most notable inventions were the shelves inside refrigerator doors and the foot-pedal trash can. She wrote two books (1927, 1928) that reflected her personal concerns about challenges faced by women in managing homes, raising families, and working in jobs outside the home.


In addition to consulting and researching, Gilbreth taught college and university courses at Bryn Mawr, Newark College of Engineering, and Rutgers University. In 1935, she was appointed professor of management at Purdue University, the first woman to receive such an appointment. She was designated as a resident lecturer for MIT in 1964 at age 86. She also served on committees appointed by six U.S. presidents.

In 1984, a commemorative postage stamp was issued in her honor, making her the only psychologist to receive this accolade.


A pioneer in many respects, Gilbreth advocated compensating for the omission of human aspects in scientific management. She generated innovative applications of psychology to work and generalized her ideas and methods to societal problems. She managed a consulting business from her home, an atypical work style for women.

During a commencement speech in 1990 (the first female speaker at Berkeley), Gilbreth articulated her early philosophy of life, which served as a foundation for her work throughout her entire career. She believed that all individuals have the right to happiness, and the goal of human life is the fulfillment and happiness of the person. While professing that individuals can and should develop their fullest potentials, Gilbreth did just that.

Therbligs

Frank B.gilbreth developed sub divisions or events that are seen as common to all kinds of work. He coined the word therblig to represent these elements of work by a human operator.

They are



1. Search
2. Find
3. Select
4. Grasp
5. Hold
6. Position
7. Assemble
8. Use
9. Disassemble
10. Inspect
11. Transport loaded
12. Transport unloaded
13. Pre-position for next operation
14. Release load
15. Unavoidable delay
16. Avoidable delay
17. Plan
18. Rest to overcome fatigue

Ralph Barnes omitted the therblig 'find' from the list he has given. He argued that it was a mental reaction than a physical movement.

Industrial Engineering deals with both systems and interpersonal aspects.

To obtain a degree, the student needs basic knowledge in exact sciences and engineering as well as familiarity with key social science disciplines, particularly economics and behavioral sciences. The increasing importance of the profession in Israel and throughout the world in recent years stems from the need for professionals with technological and engineering know-how to improve production methods and processes through various technologies, to shorten response times, lower prices in competitive market conditions and improve service and product quality. Over the years, industrial and management engineering alumni have been employed in a range of manufacturing and service operations in the private and public sectors, such as hospitals, banks, and insurance agencies, as well as in the military in procurement and logistics functions. Graduates are employed in a wide range of positions which include improvement and analysis of processes and organizations, analyzing computer communications and information systems needs for managing organizations, and in promoting integration of international innovative processes and advanced technologies in the local arena such as introducing industrial robots into production and service organizations, computerization of plants and commercial businesses, and instituting innovative methods for improving quality and service.


The program of study is based on the following fields:
Mathematics and introductory courses in Engineering and Physics
Statistics and Operations Research
Information Systems and Computer Science
Industrial Engineering
Economics, Behavioral Sciences and Management
English
Practical experience



Structure of the program
The program of study is based on an eight-semester format customary in other universities. The program includes a total of 35 courses (158 credits), including laboratories. Prerequisites for existing courses are listed in the syllabus. Prerequisites for courses being developed or upgraded are noted in the schematic structure of the program (Table 3).

Try being a human factors engineer, er, practitioner,

I'VE HEARD THE GRUMBLING THAT industrial engineers don't get any respect. Other engineers think that industriaJ engineering isn't really even "engineering." You're treated as the "soft" side of the engineering world. Give me a break! Try being a human factors engineer, er, practitioner, er, whatever the heck we call ourselves. At least, industrial engineers have the word "engineer" in the title (and on your college degree).

A Letter in 'Industrial Engineer' magazine

Coverage examination

I read the magazine more regularly after rejoining the faculty of the National Institute of Industrial Engineering (India).

In my efforts to understand the focus of industrial engineering from its history, I came to the conclusion that the focus of IE is on efficiency or productivity. This efficiency focus can be categorized into human efficiency and system efficiency.

The focus of [Frederick] Taylor and [Frank and Lillian] Gilbreth was more on human efficiency. The focus of Harrington Emerson was on system efficiency. Industrial engineering is an amalgam of the thoughts of these pioneers and has progressed well.

Industrial engineers have to understand the technical and business processes that are given to them improve efficiency. In a magazine of industrial engineers, there should be material on IE departments, their organization, and achievements. Managing IE departments and implementation of IE projects are vital areas that should be covered. Then descriptions of career progress of industrial engineers from IE departments to CEOs are required to provide role models to young industrial engineers.

IE Societies - Beginning

Similarly, the advocates of scientific management sought a professionally-based platform from their earliest days. Of course, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) had been there from the beginning. However, even some of the advocates of systematic management techniques resented the efforts of Taylor, and especially Cooke, to detract from the primary mission of the ASME.

The scientific management advocates countered by forming two new societies, the Society to Promote the Science of Management (formed in 1911 and renamed the Taylor Society in 1915) and the Efficiency Society (1912). In addition, they organized and attended professional conferences, most notably the Tuck School Conference in 1911.

The internal politics of the new societies and the continuing struggles of Scientific Management advocates to have a voice within the ASME is a story by itself. However, one advantage of the new societies was that the scientific management advocates could continue to publish in the Bulletin of the Taylor Society long after the ASME′s Transactionsbecame unavailable to them.

Global Efficiency Engineering - ELIZABETH ARDEN, INC.

The Company also announced that it has substantially completed the
comprehensive review of its global business processes that it announced and
commenced in fiscal 2007 to re-engineer its extended supply chain, logistics and
transaction processing systems ("Global Efficiency Engineering"). The inventory
reduction initiatives and other programs that have been implemented as part of
the Company's Global Efficiency Engineering have been well executed and have so
far achieved their targets. As a result, the Company has decided to accelerate
the re-engineering of its extended supply chain functions as well as the
realignment of other parts of the organization to best support its new business
processes.


In connection with the Global Efficiency Engineering, the Company is
migrating to a new enterprise software application, the JD Edwards enterprise
software application, to improve key transaction processes and accommodate
anticipated growth of its business. This infrastructure investment is expected
to simplify the Company's transaction processing by utilizing a common platform
to centralize all of its global transaction processing functions.

In the talk, he said that efficiency methods are to be adopted by employees.

But the government's efficiency engineers could determine just how much energy a human worker can expend each day without overstrain and overwork and the wreck ofhis own body - all he has to offer to the world as an engine of energy.

Industrial Engineering - Definition - Knowledge Base

Here is the definition from the American Institute of Industrial Engineers :


"Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, material, equipment, and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and method of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems."

http://ie.cankaya.edu.tr/dept/deptbot_en.htm



According to The Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE), "Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, installation, and improvement of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment, and energy by drawing upon specialized knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences, together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems."

The definition emphasizes "the design, installation, and improvement of integrated systems". But the disciplines does not have enough focused content on design of integrated systems and installation of integrated systems.

What special knowledge and techniques do industrial engineers bring to the design process of systems which are unique to it and not common with other engineering disciplines and management functions. Industrial engineers have not identified their unique set of concepts in this area.

Similarly in installation of systems area also industrial engineers have not develop a unique set of concepts and skills.

Industrial engineering curriculums should be built around the three areas that the definition emphasizes.

Design of systems

Installation of systems

Improvement of systems

The subjects that fall under these three categories need to be identified very clearly and communicated to the students. Textbooks are to be created for supporting the curriculum.

Industrial Engineering - Design of Systems

IE definition includes design of systems as a function of industrial engineers.

IE - Installation of Systems

IE definition says installation of systems is a function of industrial engineers

IE - Improvement of Systems

IE definition talks of improvement of systems as a function of industrial engineering

Efficiency Engineering

Efficiency engineering is another major focus area of Industrial engineering that distinguishes it from other engineering areas. Industrial engineers improve the efficiency of various products, production system, work systems and business processes designed, manufactured or installed, or operated by engineers of other disciplines and managers of various functions.

The following subjects are a part of efficiency engineering focus of industrial engineering

Value engineering
Statistical quality control
Work study
Operations research

Harrington Emerson is the pioneer in developing efficiency engineering.

Human effort engineering

Human effort engineering is a core area of industrial engineers that distinguishes the subject from other engineering disciplines. The role of man in engineering - that of creating various man made objects is studied in industrial engineering.

Through their studies on humans at work, Industrial engineers aim to make the man more and more productive in creating man made useful objects simultaneously taking care of his comfort, health, and safety.

The man who is credited with foudning this discipline, F.W. Taylor did pioneering work in this area. Gilbreth followed this approach and took it to greater heights in his emphasis on motion study
