  1. Lubrication for Industry, Second Edition

    This is a Print-On-Demand book and is printed upon receipt of your order. It is not returnable except for product defects. Delivery will take approximately 10 to 14 days.

     

    With over 70% of bearing failures attributed to ineffective lubrication practices, no one involved in asset management can afford to pass up this second edition! As a clear, concise, practical introduction to the world of industrial lubrication, this edition dispels the myths surrounding lubrication and helps users develop a keen sense and understanding of how lubrication directly and indirectly impacts machine reliability, availability, and ultimately, the bottom line. What’s more, it provides readers with practical advice that will allow them to put in place a viable lubrication management program and effectively troubleshoot lubrication related problems immediately, while offering essential information required to significantly reduce equipment downtime and increase life cycle management. It is a significant source that provides vital information and practical methods not currently taught in trade apprenticeship and engineering programs.

  3. Industrial and Manufacturing Wellness

    When humans are “well,” they are in a state where body, mind, and spirit are holistically integrated, and are healthy, happy, and resilient.  The same can be said for a business.  Industry and Manufacturing Wellness explains how to use Reliability Engineering principles to design and create companies that are robust, reliable, self-improving, integrated business systems best suited for getting maximum success in today’s and tomorrow’s world.

     

    This revolutionary work goes well beyond the plant to show a completely new way to engineer, design, and build business processes and work flow that deliver overall operational excellence to a company. The work introduces risk management, decision-making methods that prove the worth – or not – of a change before it’s initiated in the organization, thus protecting against making wrong choices. These universally applicable process improvement concepts makes readers take a system-wide approach that can be repeated infinitely to deliver the utmost operational success.

  4. Fundamentals of Forecasting Using Excel (eBook only)

    Forecasting is an integral part of almost all business enterprises. This book provides readers with the tools to analyze their data, develop forecasting models and present the results in Excel. Progressing from data collection, data presentation, to a step-by-step development of the forecasting techniques, this essential text covers techniques that include but not limited to time series-moving average, exponential smoothing, trending, simple and multiple regression, and Box-Jenkins. And unlike other products of its kind that require either high-priced statistical software or Excel add-ins, this book does not require such software. It can be used both as a primary text and as a supplementary text.


    Note that this book is no longer available in printed form, but it is available as an eBook.

  5. Applied Engineering Economics Using Excel

    This must-have textbook for students in mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering departments addresses issues not sufficiently covered by existing engineering economics texts. Clearly presenting fundamental concepts that engineering students need to master in one semester, the author effectively applies an incremental learning method, starting with resolving personal financial matters and gradually progressing to the complexities of engineering economic calculations. Ample practical examples and exercises with answers at the end of each chapter teach students to solve problems using Microsoft Excel without the need for calculus. Future engineers also will gain valuable skills such as the ability to effectively communicate the results of their analyses to financial professionals.

  9. Overall Equipment Effectiveness

    This is a Print-On-Demand book and is printed upon receipt of your order. It is not returnable except for product defects. Delivery will take approximately 10 to 14 days.

     

    Written primarily for those responsible for the reliability of equipment and the production operation, this innovative book centers on developing and measuring true Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). The author demonstrates that true OEE correlates with factory output, provides a methodology to link OEE with net profits that can be used by reliability managers to build solid business cases for improvement projects, and draws on his own experience by presenting successful improvement applications in every chapter. Additionally, it will also help practitioners better understand Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and develop an effective foundation to support Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM).
