Providing a broad introduction to industrial and systems engineering, this book defines industrial and systems engineering, describes it place in the business world, and offers a wide picture of the functional areas with some solution techniques. Divided into three parts, the reference explains the role industrial and systems engineering play in an organization and how to manage and control the function ... covers elementary systems theory and feedback ... presents a typical problem for each of the major methodologies of industrial and systems engineering and provides the tools and techniques for effectively solving it ... discusses computerization of these techniques ... emphasizes the relationship of industrial engineering to such areas as operations research and ergonomics ... explores integrated systems design, showing how the I.E. must bring together all the detailed pieces into an integrated system ... adds coverage of simulation ... and updates data where applicable. Suitable for industrial and systems engineers.
This is a revision of the famed pocket guide giving engineers, scientists, technicians, and students thousands of essential technical and mathematical formulas and hundreds of diagrams to simplify and speed their calculations.
A BUSINESSWEEK BESTSELLER
Bestselling Lean Six Sigma author Michael George provides the first pocket guide for deployers of Lean Six Sigma
The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Toolbook blends Lean and Six Sigma tools and concepts, providing expert advice on how to determine which tool within a "family" is best for different purposes. Packed with detailed examples and step-bystep instructions, it's the ideal handy reference guide to help Green and Black Belts make the transition from the classroom to the field.
This is the "green book" that started it all — the first book in English on JIT, written from the engineer's viewpoint. When Omark Industries bought 500 copies and studied it companywide, Omark became the American pioneer in JIT.
Here is Dr. Shingo's classic industrial engineering rationale for the priority of process-based over operational improvements in manufacturing. He explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota production system, examines production as a functional network of processes and operations, and then discusses the mechanism necessary to make JIT possible in any manufacturing plant.
If you are a serious student of manufacturing, you will benefit greatly from reading this primary resource on the powerful fundamentals of JIT.
Recent news about one of our authors!
Jerome Lavelle, co-author Engineering Economic Analysis, 11E, won the 2011 Wellington Award, which is given at the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) Annual Conference & Expo and recognizes outstanding contributions in the field of engineering economy. His co-authors, Donald Newnan and Ted Eschenbach, have both taken home the prize in the past.
This eleventh edition of the market-leading Engineering Economic Analysis offers comprehensive coverage of financial and economic decision-making for engineers, with an emphasis on problem solving, life-cycle costs, and the time value of money. The authors' concise, accessible writing, practical emphasis, and contemporary examples linked to students' everyday lives make this text the most popular among students. And with the most extensive support package, this is the easiest book to teach from.
New to the Eleventh Edition:
* For instructors considering putting all or part of their course online, we now offer all of the electronic material for upload to Learning Management Systems
* More than 340 new and revised end-of-chapter problems
* Greatly enhanced coverage of Microsoft Excel® software, including 36 video-based Excel tutorials aimed at allowing instructors to spend more time teaching the concepts and less time teaching the software
* Up-to-date chapter-opening vignettes that reflect current global events
* New appendix on using financial and the HP 33s & 35s calculators for Time Value of Money calculations—a great time saver in class and on the FE Exam
* Updated to include the latest tax legislation and rates
* Enhanced coverage of ethics
INSTRUCTOR'S SUPPORT PACKAGE
* Learning Management System support: Most of the electronic ancillaries are available as pre-formatted cartridges for upload to your Learning Management System, including Blackboard or Moodle.
* Instructor's Manual includes full solutions to all text problems in print format
* Instructor's CD includes the case solutions to the Cases in Engineering Economy text, as well as a computerized test bank
* Two PowerPoint-based lecture resources: Fully-customizable PowerPoint-based lecture outlines, ready for immediate use or modification, and slides of every figure in the text
* Automated test bank for every chapter
FOR STUDENTS, PACKAGED WITH EVERY COPY OF THE TEXT
*A free casebook: The in-text CD includes Cases in Engineering Economy, a collection of 54 case studies designed to help students apply the theories and concepts of engineering economy to real-world situations in the engineering profession
* Excel support: 36 video-based Microsoft Excel software tutorials, each explaining how to use Excel to work specific financial calculations, and a collection of interactive spreadsheet models. Each is designed to promote independent, self-paced instruction in this vital tool. Makes a wonderful companion to both the text and the Casebook.
* The Companion Website (www.oup.com/us/newnan) features additional materials, including 100 additional sample FE exam problems and online quiz questions. On-line quiz questions for self study are also included.

Unrivaled coverage of a broad spectrum of industrial engineering concepts and applications
The Handbook of Industrial Engineering, Third Edition contains a vast array of timely and useful methodologies for achieving increased productivity, quality, and competitiveness and improving the quality of working life in manufacturing and service industries. This astoundingly comprehensive resource, now available in a three-volume set, also provides a cohesive structure to the discipline of industrial engineering with four major classifications: technology; performance improvement management; management, planning, and design control; and decision-making methods.
Completely updated and expanded to reflect nearly a decade of important developments in the field, this Third Edition features a wealth of new information on project management, supply-chain management and logistics, and systems related to service industries. Other important features of this essential reference include:
Volume 1 includes the list of advisory board members, the contributors, Foreword by John Powers, Preface by Gavriel Salvendy, the table of contents, Section 1: Industrial Engineering Function and Skills, and Section II: Technology.
Volume 2 includes Section III: Performance Improvement Management and Section IV: Management, Planning, Design, and Control.
Volume 3 includes Section V: Methods for Decision Making and the comprehensive Author and Subject Index.
The Handbook of Industrial Engineering, Third Edition is an immensely useful one-stop resource for industrial engineers and technical support personnel in corporations of any size; continuous process and discrete part manufacturing industries; and all types of service industries, from healthcare to hospitality, and from retailing to finance.
Product Design presents an in-depth study of structured designed processes and methods. Fundamental approach is that reverse engineering and teardowns offer a new better paradigm for design instruction, permitting a modern learning cycle of experience, hypothesis, understanding, and then execution. For practicing engineers interested in learning about mechanical design.
