Divided into two major areas of discussion - work systems, and work methods, measurement, and management - this guide provides up-to-date, quantitative coverage of work systems and how work is analyzed and designed. Includes 30 chapters 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. Addresses the "systems" by which work is accomplished, such as worker-machine systems, manufacturing cells, assembly lines, projects, and office work pools. Summarizes many aspects of work systems, operations analysis, and work measurement using mathematical equations and quantitative examples. For professionals in the area of industrial engineering.
