While others talk about the known innovation problem, The Innovation Solution offers a well researched, logical and holistic understanding of the innovation process, taught for many years at several colleges and Universities.View
Ellis Ott taught generations of quality practitioners to be explorers of the truth through the collection and graphical portrayal of data. From a simple plea to "plot the data" to devising a graphical analytical tool called the analysis of means (ANOM), Ott demonstrated that process knowledge is to be gained by seeking the information contained within the data.View
This book is intended to provide a fundamental introduction to Cost of Quality concepts (often simply referred to as Quality Costs) for executives or those individuals new to quality concepts. In addition, it can help anyone in an organization interested in how this measurement methodology links to business costs.View
The Second Edition of this well-respected publication provides updated coverage of basic nondestructive testing (NDT) principles for currently recognized NDT methods.View
In this introductory book, Groover not only takes a modern, all-inclusive look at manufacturing processes but also provides substantial coverage of engineering materials and production systems.View
The use of quantitative methods offers numerous benefits in the fields of industry and business, both through identifying existing trouble spots and alerting management and technical personnel to potential problems. Statistical Methods for Quality Improvement, Third Edition guides readers through a broad range of tools and techniques that make it possible to quickly identify and resolve both current and potential trouble spots within almost any manufacturing or nonmanufacturing process.View
Ultrasonic Nondestructive Testing of Materials: Theoretical Foundations explores the mathematical foundations and emerging applications of this testing process, which is based on elastic wave propagation in isotropic and anisotropic solids.View
Manufacturing Handbook of Best Practices: An Innovation, Productivity, and Quality Focus gives you a working knowledge of today's cutting edge tools - preparing you for the way you will be doing your job tomorrow. With contributions from seasoned manufacturing experts, the book provides a single-source reference to what's currently happening in modern manufacturing facilities.View
Finance is not, in general, a part of the curriculum for scientists, engineers, and even nondestructive testing (NDT) specialists. Therefore, justifying proposals for new methods and equipment that may seemingly add a modicum of cost to the production process can be problematic. Financial Justification of Nondestructive Testing not only explains how 100% inspection by high-tech methods can save money for a manufacturing organization, but also explains how to justify this cost to upper management.View
Control systems are found in a wide variety of areas, including chemical processing, aerospace, manufacturing, and automotive engineering. Beyond the controller, sensors and actuators are the most important components of the control system, and students, regardless of their chosen engineering field, need to understand the fundamentals of how these components work, how to properly select them, and how to integrate them into an overall system.View
Stat Free Six Sigma has been written to ease implantation of Six Sigma by minimizing statistics, and to achieve great results through innovative application.View
The purpose of this field guide is to assist organizations, step by step, in implementing a quality management system (QMS) in conformance with ISO 9001:2008, whether from scratch or by transitioning from ISO 9001:2000. It examines each sub-clause of Sections 4–8 of ISO 9001:2008, which contain the requirements, and gives a list of the documentation/documents required, internal audit questions, a summary of management’s responsibilities, and a flowchart of the steps that need to be undertaken to satisfy the requirements.
