This work offers an insider's view of changes in industrial operation that should bring about increased performance through the reduction of waste and delay. Each of the ten case studies in the book follows a similar pattern that links theory with practical application and involves the reader in devising solutions to the problems posed. The "real" solutions adopted in each case are presented finally, together with the outcomes obtained, in order to assist and reinforce the reader's learning. In engineering management, the resources of manpower, materials and machines need attention in order to achieve competitive advantage. In this case study approach, some relevant theory is provided with an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses for application. The challenge for the reader is to improve the current situation, given the facts that have been identified. All the cases are open-ended, so the actual changes adopted with outcomes obtained are included, thus facilitating comparisons. The cases cover topics such as strategy formulation, management structure, cost estimation, production control and delivery, productivity, assembly line output, investment decisions, management information decisions, quality systems, health and safety aspects, TQM and continuous improvement, and measuring and monitoring results.
