    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. Salient Features Work systems discussion - Includes topics such as worker-machine systems, assembly lines, service operations, office work, projects, and material handling. Work 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. Thirty 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. Unique historical notes - Provide a valuable perspective on the various techniques and topics discussed. Emphasis on the management aspects of work - Covers topics such as organization theory, wage administration, worker motivation, and job evaluation. Broadened 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. Extensive problem sets and review questions - Features nearly 500 end-of-chapter review questions and more than 400 end-of-chapter problems. Historical notes - Provide a historical perspective of the various techniques and topics. Solid 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. Distinct 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)."
