Beyond World-Class Productivity shows why a return to traditional tools and the power of people can help companies meet today's challenges in the manufacturing sector.Beyond World-Class Productivity gives readers a balance of essential information, theory and case studies. Readers can expect to gain new insights into engineering approaches to productivity, profitability and real or non-real gain, including: * useful tools for industrial engineering * effectiveness in unit labor costs, * feasibility studies * work simplification, and * developing mind innovation.Practical examples and their accompanying commentary come from the author's 40 years of real-world experience on the shop floor and in the boardroom. Figures are also provided to illustrate actual productivity results from real companies.Both managers and engineers can appreciate Beyond World-Class Productivity as an enlightening guide to the improvement of productivity and profitability within the manufacturing sector.
