Our Industrial Engineering portfolio has been tailored to help our readers understand the application of engineering principles and techniques of scientific management to optimize complex industrial processes and systems. Our bestselling books and journals in this field, such as Systems Design and Engineering and pre-Accident Investigations, draw from many disciplines, applying statistical analysis, science, mathematics and organizational management to name a few, to deliver a knowledge corpus as large and varied as the field itself.
Materials and Manufacturing Processes deals with issues that result in better utilization of raw materials and energy, integration of design and manufacturing activities requiring the invention of suitable new manufacturing processes and techniques, unmanned production dependent on efficient and reliable control of various processes including intelligent processing, introduction of new materials in industrial production necessitating new manufacturing process technology, and more. Information is offered in various formats, including research articles, letter reports, review articles, conference papers, applied research, book and conference reviews, and entire issues devoted to symposia.
International Journal of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (IJCIM) reports new research in theory and applications of computer integrated manufacturing. The scope spans mechanical and manufacturing engineering, software and computer engineering as well as automation and control engineering with a particular focus on today’s data driven manufacturing.
Journal metrics can be a useful tool for readers, as well as for authors who are deciding where to submit their next manuscript for publication. However, any one metric only tells a part of the story of a journal’s quality and impact. Each metric has its limitations which means that it should never be considered in isolation, and metrics should be used to support and not replace qualitative review.
While Lean principles have been around for decades, the practices have yet to keep current with the growing area of Sustainability. This book provides an implementation approach to integrating Lean and Sustainability principles toward a circular economy.
Offering a modern, process-oriented approach emphasizing process control scheme development instead of extended coverage of LaPlace space descriptions of process dynamics, Designing Controls for the Process Industries focuses on aspects that are most important for contemporary practical process engineering and reflects the industry’s use of digital distributed control-based systems. The second edition now features 60 tutorial videos demonstrating solutions to most of the example problems.
This handbook gives a comprehensive description of the advances in materials science and manufacturing technology, aiming primarily at its applications in the field of biomedical science, automobile engineering, structural engineering, thermo-fluid mechanics, and many other multi-disciplinary areas.
Time-pressed, professionals looking for practical guidance to shape their current or future safety programs should use this book. Pre-Accident Investigations: An Introduction to Organizational Safety helps to identify complex potential incidents before they take place.
As its name implies, the aim of Systems Design and Engineering: Facilitating Multidisciplinary Development Projects is to help systems engineers develop the skills and thought processes needed to successfully develop and implement engineered systems.
This new edition undergraduate introductory textbook follows the motto of the previous versions: "Solid information, easy-to-read, easy to understand, easy to apply." The aim remains the same: "Human engineering" workplaces, tools, machinery, computers, lighting, shiftwork, work demands, the environment, officers, vehicles, the home – and everything else that we can design to fit the human.
