The Japan Institute of Industrial Engineering
The Japan Institute of Industrial Engineering (JIIE) was established in 1959 in order to facilitate sound development of Industrial Engineering (IE) and improvement of corporate productivity in Japan.
The Institute has been helping member corporations to improve the productivity and modernize management through steady activities such as educational, training programs and research based on industrial-educational cooperation related to industrial engineering.
