Here is a great introduction to the remarkable mind of Shigeo Shingo, indisputably one of the great forces in manufacturing. In this book Dr. Shingo describes his approach to manufacturing improvements, developed and refined over the course of a brilliant career. He called it the Scientific Thinking Mechanism (STM).
For more than 100 years, Machinery's Handbook has been the most popular reference work in metalworking, design, engineering and manufacturing facilities, and technical schools and colleges throughout the world.
Serves as a complete reference that covers systems, machines, processes, and theory
Emphasizes physical insight and a model-based approach to problem solving
Provides extensive coverage of tool grades and coatings for all engineering materials
Includes a full-scale treatment of minimum quality lubrication machining
Integrated Enterprise Excellence(IEE) introduces a new organizational governance system that integrates analytics with innovation. The IEE system shows business leaders what to measure and report;when and how to report it;how to interpret and us e the results to establish goals;how to orchestrate work activities;and how to develop starategies that are...
In 2005, Goodyear’s research and development (R&D) engine was not performing up to its full potential. The R&D organization developed high-quality tires, but the projects were not always successful. Goodyear embarked on a major initiative to transform its innovation creation processes by learning, understanding, and applying lean product...
Explores measurement at the basis of performance in the context of systems engineering
Underscores the importance of measurement in the successful implementation of engineering projects
Addresses systems interoperability measurement, illustrating how the elements of any large complex system inter-operate to accomplish a desired end goal
Learning what the most common errors are in creating or reading engineering drawings-and then learning how to avoid them altogether-has untold benefits for all engineers, technicians and draftsmen, be they mechanical engineers, product designers, manufacturing engineers, structural engineers, machinists, or others involved the technical graphic...
