Job Shop Leaders

RRP $12.99

This book is about job shops. Inside is a combination of stories and practical tips from my experience. It's not theory. This is how I lost money, made money, kept my job or got promoted. These are all the things I dug through the literature trying to find answers to. Job shops can be many different types of businesses. Factories, distributors, and government offices could all be considered job shops. Job shops are all those places where the work you do, and the volume of work varies from day to day, even custom design businesses where every piece is unique. There were seven challenges I struggled with that I couldn't find adequate answers to. We talk about it here by addressing: controlling lead times, eliminating knack points, enlightened spending, solving dynamic capacity, getting to full kit, order unevenness (Mura), and Minimum Viable Process (MVP). If you work in high volume mass production this probably isn't written for you. If you've never lost a night's sleep trying to understand how your business works, put this down. If you like big words and highly technical descriptions I'm not your guy. This book is for the searchers. I'm looking forward to this. Come on inside.

Designed as a specialized, practical reference for human resources professionals and students, this book fully explains both how to prepare and how to use job descriptions. The author breaks new ground by identifying a more extensive array of uses for job descriptions than in previous works on the subject--132 major management uses are discussed. Particular attention is given to gathering data for job descriptions and developing task/responsibility categories as an aid to understanding the design of work. Sample job descriptions are included to illustrate points made in the text. The author demonstrates the numerous ways in which job descriptions can help management make better decisions in each of the core areas of human resource management--job design, reward system design, employee staffing, employee training, and performance control. In addition, Grant addresses in detail the many typical problems organizations have with job description preparation and use, offering a wealth of suggestions for avoiding these common pitfalls. Finally, the book shows that the design of jobs can be accurately depicted by job descriptions if attention is given to key unconventional types of information such as task times and priorities, non-work and semi-work activity, and unplanned work. An especially valuable feature is the Appendix section which contains model forms and questionnaires, log sheets, lists of objectives, rules, regulations, policies, and more. Indispensable for personnel administrators and specialists, this book is also a unique and useful management tool for department and division heads throughout the organization.

Design Engineering

RRP $357.99

As with any art, science, or discipline, natural talent is only part of the equation. Consistent success stems from honing your skills, cultivating good techniques, and hard work. Design engineering, a field often considered an intuitive process not amenable to scientific investigation, is no exception. Providing descriptive theory, broad context, and practical examples, Design Engineering: A Manual for Enhanced Creativity explores how to quantify creativity, codify inspiration, and document a process seemingly based solely on intuition.

The authors discuss how to clarify the design task, conceptualize candidate solutions, and search for alternatives. They delineate how these phases fit into an industrial context, including engineering product development, and what to consider during design engineering to satisfy all customers. The book discusses activities and methods for performing engineering design work in a rational, reviewable, and documented way, increasing the likelihood of finding an optimal solution. The presentation covers substantiated use of intuition and opportunism as an integral part of rational, systematic, and methodical designing. It examines the influence of other topics on the work, such as psychology, computers, teamwork, application of methods, and education. The authors recommend that results from these less systematic activities be brought into the rational and systematic framework to document the results.

Based on the authors' extensive industrial experience, the book elucidates a coherent body of knowledge of design engineering. The book clearly details an easily applicable theory that not only gives you solid design tools, but can also be adapted to any existing design situation.
