Research Abstract: 
The interaction between the educational institutions and employers can be viewed as a chain of suppliers and customers. The final product of the educational institutions is qualified people or graduated students. The employers as a customer expect certain qualifications of the graduated students. The educational institutions should know what customer qualifications demands and be able to translate these demands into courses and the curriculum. In this paper, a real-time approach for determining the industry qualifications demand will be presented. The Industrial Engineering (IE) curriculum at An-Najah National University (NNU) have been assessed based on the industry qualifications demand and educational outcomes of Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
