Divided into two major areas of study – work systems, and work methods, measurement, and management – this guidebook provides up-to-date, quantitative coverage of work systems and how work is analyzed and designed. Thorough, broad-based coverage addresses nearly all of the traditional topics of industrial engineering that relate to work systems and work science. The author’s quantitative approach summarizes many aspects of work systems, operations analysis, and work measurement using mathematical equations and quantitative examples.\n\nFeatures\n\nWork systems discussion – Includes topics such as worker-machine systems, assembly lines, service operations, office work, projects, and material handling.\nWork methods, measurement, and management coverage –Addressesmethods engineering, operations analysis, facilities planning, time study, ergonomics, lean production, six sigma quality programs, work organization, and compensation systems.\nThirty chapters are organized into six parts – Work Systems and How They Work; Methods Engineering and Layout Planning; Time Study and Work Measurement; New Approaches in Process Improvement and Work Management; Ergonomics and Human Factors in the Workplace, and Traditional Topics in Work Management.\nUnique historical notes – Provide a valuable perspective on the various techniques and topics discussed.\nEmphasis on the management aspects of work – Covers topics such as organization theory, wage administration, worker motivation, and job evaluation.\nBroadened scope of time and motion study – Addresses the systems by which work is accomplished, such as worker-machine systems, manufacturing cells, assembly lines, projects, and office work pools.\nExtensive problem sets and review questions – Features nearly 500 end-of-chapter review questions and more than 400 end-of-chapter problems.\nHistorical notes – Provide a historical perspective of the various techniques and topics.\nSolid instructional support – Features anonline, downloadable solutions manual with answers to all review questions and solutions to all problems, plus a complete set of PowerPoint slides covering all chapters.\nDistinct coverage of ergonomics – Addresses physical ergonomics, cognitive ergonomics, work environment, and safety separately from the traditional techniques of methods engineering (such as charting techniques and motion economy principles).\n\nTable of Content\n\nChapter 1 INTRODUCTION, Part I Work Systems and How They Work \nChapter 2 MANUAL WORK AND WORKER-MACHINE SYSTEMS \nChapter 3 WORK FLOW, BATCH PROCESSING, AND WORK CELLS \nChapter 4 MANUAL ASSEMBLY LINES \nChapter 5 LOGISTICS OPERATIONS \nChapter 6 SERVICE OPERATIONS AND OFFICE WORK\n Chapter 7 PROJECTS AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT Part II Methods Engineering and Layout Planning \nChapter 8 INTRODUCTION TO METHODS ENGINEERING AND OPERATIONS ANALYSIS \nChapter 9 CHARTING AND DIAGRAMMING TECHNIQUES FOR OPERATIONS ANALYSIS \nChapter 10 MOTION STUDY AND WORK DESIGN\n Chapter 11 FACILITY LAYOUT PLANNING AND DESIGN Part III Time Study and Work Measurement \nChapter 12 INTRODUCTION TO WORK MEASUREMENT \nChapter 13 DIRECT TIME STUDY Chapter 14 PREDETERMINED MOTION TIME SYSTEMS \nChapter 15 STANDARD DATA SYSTEMS \nChapter 16 WORK SAMPLING \nChapter 17 COMPUTERIZED WORK MEASUREMENT AND STANDARDS MAINTENANCE \nChapter 18 THE ECONOMICS AND APPLICATIONS OF TIME STANDARDS \nChapter 19 LEARNING CURVES PART IV New Approaches in Process Improvement and Work Management \nChapter 20 LEAN PRODUCTION \nChapter 21 SIX SIGMA AND OTHER QUALITY PROGRAMS Part V Ergonomics and Human Factors in the Workplace \nChapter 22 INTRODUCTION TO ERGONOMICS AND HUMAN FACTORS \nChapter 23 PHYSICAL ERGONOMICS: WORK PHYSIOLOGY AND ANTHROPOMETRY \nChapter 24 COGNITIVE ERGONOMICS: THE HUMAN SENSORY SYSTEM AND INFORMATION PROCESSING \nChapter 25 THE PHYSICAL WORK ENVIRONMENT \nChapter 26 OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH Part VI Traditional Topics in Work Management \nChapter 27 WORK ORGANIZATION \nChapter 28 WORKER MOTIVATION AND THE SOCIAL ORGANIZATION AT WORK \nChapter 29 JOB EVALUATION AND PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL \nChapter 30 COMPENSATION SYSTEMS
