Item description for Progressive Manufacturing: Managing Uncertainty While Blazing a Trail to Success by Soli J. Engineer...

Manufacturers are continuously searching for solutions to their seemingly never-ending inventory, delivery, cost, productivity, quality, and profit woes. Progressive Manufacturing: Managing Uncertainty While Blazing a Trail to Success provides powerful, cutting-edge, common-sense solutions to these and other perennial problems faced by most organizations. The book delineates the three keystones essential to achieving any significant degree of success --- people, products or services, and processes. It presents thought-provoking ideas and methods for simplifying processes at every level.

Soli Engineer explores topics that are instrumental to achieving success, but are often avoided, such as work breakdown structure and improvement curve theory, and explains "how to" and "how not to" approaches to production and inventory management. This book provides innovative techniques that take you beyond the tried and true to achieve real operational success and increased profits. It is a must-read for operations, production, and supply chain professionals.

Key Features:
* Challenges unfounded comparisons between MRP (a procedure) and JIT, Kanban, and TQM (philosophies)
* Clarifies a key interface between engineering and manufacturing --- the Product Data Management (PDM) system
* Provides innovative methods for using bills of material to improve productivity and multiple ways to reduce lead times and inventory
* Emphasizes the vital ingredients for achieving success and the dangers of ignoring one or more of them
* WAV offers free downloadable cost roll-up exercises, learning and improvement curve tools, and Powerpoint slides describing how to effectively establish and achieve improvement objectives --- available from the J. Ross Publishing Web Added Value Download Resource Center

Reviews - What do customers think about Progressive Manufacturing: Managing Uncertainty While Blazing a Trail to Success?

best darn book  Mar 1, 2005
This is the best darn book I've read in a very long time. It is easy to read, flows well, and is pertinent to all walks of life, not just manufacturing. Kudos to the author, he has a superb command of the language, and brings humor & honesty to a topic that could easily be dull. His no-nonsense approach to manufacturing, and life in general, is refreshing.
