Three Major Components of Industrial Engineering

After writing number of articles explaining What is industrial engineering, I feel:

IE is better explained as having three components.

1. Human Effort Engineering
2. Systems Efficiency Engineering
3. Systems Design, Installation and Improvement Management.

All the techniques that IEs use can be categorised under these three heads. Human Effort and System Efficiency are the core focus areas of IE and IE has broadened to systems design management.

I am developing number of online articles to explain my categorisation and the present list of such published articles is:
