Fundamentals of Shop Operations Management: Work Station Dynamics
This is a friendly, readable reference for anyone associated with a manufacturing operation. It will be especially reassuring for young engineers facing the challenges of manufacturing a product competitively. The users can refer to the book for the available ways and methods to solve the problem at hand, and then select a solution and modify their approach to suit the particular circumstances. The book gives the reader the benefit of the author's extensive experience and wisdom. I believe the application of the knowledge contained in this book will pay great dividends for the business owner and users of the knowledge by reducing costs, saving calendar time, improving safety, and building morale in the manufacturing operation.
