Manufacturing Engineering: Principles For Optimization, Third Edition
Manufacturing engineering optimization and cost-driven design are the subjects of two new books that have just been released by ASME Press. "Manufacturing Engineering: Principles for Optimization (Third Edition)" was written by engineering management expert and former ASME President Daniel T. Koenig. In this new 536-page third edition, Koenig has added information on project management, time standards, personnel appraisal, lean manufacturing, and expanded coverage of probability and statistics. Summaries and review questions are provided at the end of each chapter to ensure the reader’s understanding and retention of the material. The book’s chapters address such topics as manufacturing engineering organization concepts, management techniques, factory capacity and loading techniques, capital equipment programs, producibility engineering, maintenance engineering, and methods, planning and work measurements. Other sections of the book examine process control engineering and quality control, computer-integrated manufacturing, computer-aided planning and data collection, manufacturing resources planning, and using ISO 9000.
