  1. 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.

  13. A Roadmap to Green Supply Chains

    This book shows the relationship between the sustainability movement and supply chains. It provides a guide for supply chain professionals, as well as government officials, corporate executives, and institutional leaders on how to direct their purchasing power so that they source products that not only fill the needs of their organizations, but that also contribute to the health and well-being of the planet.  The author, Dr. Kevin Lyons, Ph.D., combined his experiences as the Chief Procurement Officer at Rutgers University with his own unique supply chain archaeology. His archaeological research involved sifting through garbage dumps where he examined the discarded products he procured for the university.  Working backwards, he developed systems and techniques for making sure sustainable products entered the supply chain from the start. And once they no longer served their intended purpose, they were recycled or reused.
