Abstract
Industrial engineering is conventionally dealing with the optimization of complex processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical, mechanical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes. Industrial engineers determine the most effective ways for an organization to use the basic factors of production, people, machines, materials, information, and energy to make or process a product or produce a service. As industrial engineering concerned with increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing costs. From this point, this paper presents alternative solutions and new driver technologies to solve some of industrial issues associated with internal systems, internal-logistics in factories like material handling and logistics especially linear actuators using smart material (shape memory alloys) to be an alternative to similar equipment. Shape memory alloys (SMAs) belong to the class of smart materials and have been used in numerous applications. Phase transformations induced by either stress or temperature are behind the remarkable properties of SMAs that motivate the concept of innovative smart actuators for different purposes. The SMA element used in these actuators can assume different forms and a spring is an element usually employed for this aim. In addition, it found that SMA actuator in reality could be employed to be alternative to other actuator and that is what this paper focused on.
