Resources Utilization and Productivity Enhancement Case StudieseBook - 2015
This book presents examples of engineering applications; particularly Industrial Engineering applications. Six distinct cases are included. The applications range from product design to quality control. The emphasis is on developing methodologies that can enhance utilization of resources. Case studies are important in demonstrating the use of engineering design principles and methodologies. The published literature, however, shows a paucity of cases that may be used for teaching and learning purposes. The reasons for a dearth of published case studies are many, including the propriety nature of problems and confidentiality of data. Such issues are further aggravated as many companies are self-insured and are reluctant to share information with outsiders.
