5-0 out of 5 stars Reduce Setup time = Shingo's book
Nice book of Shingo. Easy to read with all advice that he could give you to reduce setup time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent ROI
I purchased this book back in the 80's and it changed my way of thinking.At the time, I was a supervisor in a forge shop.The lessons that my crew and I were able to apply based on the principles in this book were awesome.We literally shaved hours off our die changes and other improvements.I actually used to hide my book from the other supervisors as I wanted to maintain an "edge" over them and this book was my main weapon.

Filled with great illustrations, the lessons given can be modified for every type of industry.I know because I have used this book in forging, sheet metal, commercial lighting and the food industry. The advice and general mindset is very easy to adapt.

As a corporate director HR I no longer get that involved in production processes.However, I continue to recommend the work of Shigeo Shingo to my associates in production.

I hope you find this review helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book
I highly recommend this book and it is a must read for all manufacturing personnel in the USA. This book will make you re-think all aspects of fixture design and manufacturing processes.It provides many excellent verbal & illustrated examples of SMED concepts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book on Set Up Time Reduction
Very good book if your interested to reduce setup / changeover times. The book is very easy to read although in some cases it keeps repeating itself. When you think logical you could already figure out 75% on how to improve changeover before reading the book, but for the last 25% this book is an absolute must. A lot of the examples are car manufacturing related, but this I not a problem because the writer tries to give you the tools on how SMED can be reached, regardless which industry you are working in.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Set Up Time Reduction Manual
This book does an excellent job of explaining how manufacturing setup times can be drastically reduced, including many useful examples.Reducing setup times is critical in the effort to implement the extraordinarily efficient Toyota Production System.
The text is much clearer than "Kaizen For Quick Changeover" by Sekine and Arai.This book deals with setup time reductions for loosely toleranced components or assemblies, and does not deal specifically with tightly toleranced parts. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Cellular manufacturing principles, applied to eitheradministrative work or production, are fundamental building blocks forlean and quick response organizations. Reorganizing the Factory is thedefinitive reference book in this important area.

Reorganizing work processes into cells has helped many organizations streamline operations, shorten lead times, increase quality, and lower costs.Cellular manufacturing is a powerful concept that is simple to understand; however, its ultimate success depends on deciding where cells fit into your organization, and then applying the know-how to design, implement and operate them.

Reorganizing the Factory presents a thoroughly researched and comprehensive "life cycle" approach to competing through cellular work organizations.It takes you from the basic cell concept and its benefits through the process of justifying, designing, implementing, operating, and improving this new type of work organization in offices and on the factory floor.

The book discusses many important technical dimensions, such as factory analysis, cell design, planning and control systems, and principles for lead time and inventory reduction.However, unique to the literature, it also covers in depth the numerous managerial issues that accompany organizing work into cells. In most implementations, performance measurement, compensation, education and training, employee involvement, and change management are critically important. These issues are often overlooked in the planning process, yet they can occupy more of the implementation time than do the technical aspects of cells.

Why do cells improve lead time, quality, and cost?
Planning for cell implementation
Justifying the move to cells, strategically and economically
Designing efficient manufacturing and office cells
Selecting and training cell employees
Compensation system for cell employees
Performance and cost measurement
Planning and control of materials and capacity

5-0 out of 5 stars The definitive book on cellular manufacturing
This book is THE reference book on cellular manufacturing.The authors have clearly distilled the knowledge gained from over 20 years of cellular manufacturing research.An excellent book and the most complete reference on the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything about CM and easy-to-understand.
I personally had the chance to take Urban's Cellular Manufacturing class and discuss the entire book with him.

Urban and Nancy did an excellent job explaining what cellular manufacturing is, what it does, how it improves the competetiveness of an organization with easy language. The best thing about this book is that almost everything mentioned in the book can be implemented and you will learn how. There is NO hard-to-understand formulas, too technical information, or any junk info you will never use.

It also includes some real case studies from some European, African, and North American companies. You will find some survey results regarding the percent improvements these companies achieved as a result of cellular manufacturing.

Besides the technical info covered in the book, you will also find some people-related issues and how to deal with them. For example, how to choose the cell employees, how to build a cell team, etc.

In addition, the authors talk about some computer software, MPX, that can easily analyze a cell's performance, in terms of utilization levels of the machines/employees, lead times of the products, etc.

If you are in the process of implementing cellular manufacturing or if you have cells but also have problems, you will definetely need to look at this book. A great book and a must-read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!
Excelent coverage of wide array of topics. Very, very informative. It is written for grad level work so this is not for someone who does not already have a very good background in regular manufacturing processes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough survey of precision manufacturing

This book presents a very thorough survey of the field of precision manufacturing. Key concepts in precision machine design as well as precision manufacturing processes are discussed. Understanding the former is critical in fully understanding the latter, and this is one of the few books that talks about both aspects in considerable length. I really liked the way the book began with an overview of the historical development of manufacturing technology and their motivators. It helped in setting context for the discussions that followed, and demonstrated that while the basic drives of precision have remained the same, as better and better precision is needed in products and systems, the techniques of achieving them keep changing.

The authors spend a few chapters discussing the various sources of precision (and imprecision) in machine and systems, such as thermal errors, vibrational errors, and structural errors. There is an excellent discussion on error mapping, which talks about how to combine different sources of errors in determining the net error in a mechanical system. These chapters provide good background and context for the subsequent discussion on precision manufacturing processes. The book focusses on mechanical material removal processes, and talks about processes on the conventional scale as well as on the micro scale. There is a brief discussion on semiconductor and nano scale processes as well.

I felt that this book gives an excellent overview of precision manufacturing. The field is quite broad, and the authors do not try fully span it, but instead try to highlight its most important concepts. Copious references are provided, and material from diverse sources are pulled together. Some of the concepts discussed, like vibrations for example, are covered in much greater detail in other texts (which are acknowledged), but the point of this book is to show how these different concepts influence manufacturing processes and systems. I taught a graduate course based on the material in this book, and I felt that its scope was quite appropriate for the class. However, it has to be mentioned that it does not fit the profile of a traditional textbook, as it does not have many examples and no end-of-chapter exercises. But this is to be expected as the topic does not lend itself to simple problems (strictly speaking, most of the problems in the field are research problems and are discussed in academic journals, quite a few of which are cited in the text).

This book will serve well as a reader for a graduate course, and as a reference for design and manufacturing engineers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great company to deal with
Our company was looking to purchase a specific industry related book and we found it here at a great price.The delivery time was initially quoted as being excessively long wait but, with limited options we had to wait it out. This company delivered way way UNDER the estimated time.Would not hesitate to recommend using this company to anyone!Very good on replying to emails also!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great training resource
Though the title implies implementation, I see this more as an educational resource used to train both shop floor workers and management alike. Under this context, this book is outstanding.
Excellent diagrams, charts, and photos make understanding 5S, manufacturing cells, kanbans, and techniques for setup reduction easy.
In fact, the basic concepts behind lean manufacturing are simple. The problem with most lean manufacturing books is that the authors often complicate the subject to make themselves seem as though they are smarter and have something unique to add (when they really don't). This book keeps lean simple.
Great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best "implementation" manuals I have seen.
We are going through a major re-organization from push system manufacturing to pull manufacturing in our facility and throughout the company. This book fits in quite nicely with this endeavor.The book doesa nice job of explaining concepts and implementation of the principles. Itis easy to read. Additionally, it has forms for suggested use in organizinginformation, AND it explains the forms and how to use them.I ampurchasing multiple copies for distribution to all of my ManufacturingEngineers.Too I am recommeding it for use throughout the company.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent training book suited for shopfloor associates
This is a book that small and medium-sized manufacturers can use to develop in-house training materials for educating their workforce on the how-to's of WCM.The explanations are succint with simple and well-writtenexamples, backed by the rich experience of the authors.Supplementarymaterials available from the authors would allow any Plant Manager todevelop customized training materials specific to his/her shopfloor.Aparticular merit of this book is the that it recommends the sequence inwhich the various elements of a WCM manufacturing program ought to betaught/implemented for best results. I plan to recommend this book as areference to undergraduates who co-op or intern at companies as part oftheir educational experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book...
I have been enjoying the breadth and depth of CAD/CAM Applications in Architecture and Design for the past few weeks.This book does an extraordinarily good job at covering not only the current state of the art in CAD/CAM work, but provides a captivating look at the development of various mechanical production solutions dating back from power looms and early machining tools.

As an educator at Carnegie Mellon University, this book provides a remarkably useful overview of most aspects of this field - an area that is sure to define the future of architecture, since 3D imaging is only recently able to be directly fabricated with machines that permit tolerances of complex forms to within thousandths of an inch.

We are surely entering a new era of production with tremendous implications for architecture.Those familiar with the techniques possible will be able to create forms that were hitherto only imagined.This thoughtful book is an excellent introduction to those curious about this phenomenon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Managing Process Manufacturing - Not just for manufacturers anymore
My company has extensive experience using Dynamics AX to manage equipment maintenance, finance, procurement, and other administrative functions, but we plan our production, sales, and logistics functions with a variety of software and spreadsheets because of our "unique" requirements in the mining industry.

Scott Hamilton's book illustrates how generic process manufacturing concepts apply to our business, and how Dynamics AX can be utilized to manage issues I used to think were unique to our industry.I didn't realize how much we share in common with producers of engine oil, hogs, and pharmacueticals.

Given my company's experience in using Dynamics AX to plan maintenance and procurement, I have no doubt that we could apply the concepts illustrated in this book to manage our "unique" production, logistics, and sales processes as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great overview of Process and Chemical using Dynamics AX
Scott Hamilton has once again accomplished the difficult task of combining astute business advice of how to improve your process based company with detailed information of how to set up Dynamics AX ERP system as a tool to do so.

It is a joy reading through the book and any consultant or manager of a process/chemical/food/pharma company should pick up this book as a first step in evaluating Dynamics AX against other fine ERP systems.

Thanks Scott for a great job.

Einar Ulfsson, CEO, Crossroads Partner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Scott Hamilton
The latest Dynamics AX book from Scott Hamilton continues the tradition of an excellent blend of business and AX system information.With primary focus on Process Manufacturing, this book covers all relevant topic areas with well written overviews, explanations, relevant examples and case studies.We've given copies of this book to staff, customers and prospects.Anyone using, implementing, or considering AX would do well to read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference for Dynamics AX and Process Mfg
I was able to get a pre-release copy of Scott Hamilton's book Managing Process Manufacturing using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. I found the book to be an easy read with a great deal of information related to using AX 2009 in a process manufacturing environment.

This book is an awesome tool for use in making decisions during the implementation process, but also a valuable guide to positioning Dynamics AX during a software selection process. The case studies really solidified the content of each chapter.For those of you that already know Dynamics AX and are considering using the Process Manufacturing vertical applications, this is a must read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dynamics AX Process Manufacturing Book Review
This is an excellent book for ALL who have an interest in Microsoft Dynamics AX. The book is structured and indexed in a manner that allows you to quickly identify sections of interest. I especially like how Scott describes what is to be covered at the start of each chapter, and then numbers the sections so that you can maintain an overall understanding of where you are in relation to the material to be covered. This was for this reader most helpful in synthesizing the information into an overall context.

Experienced AX implementers will be able to read the book and quickly learn what is new for Process Manufacturing, what existing Discrete Manufacturing functionality doesn't apply and very importantly what process functionality and language is simply a relabeled existing functionality in the process context. This book is not just a "what is different" book. It describes in detail the system settings and approaches to address manufacturing requirements be they process, discrete, or mixed. The book is full of diagrams and tables that are very helpful in describing the functionality available at various steps or based on policies selected.

For non-implementers this book describes an amazing amount of information that you could use in understanding the depth of functionality available within AX and trigger process improvement initiatives or just to help make decisions about AX being the right fit for your company.

Finally, as an experienced (insert grey hair here) manufacturing and process improvement specialist, I truly value books such as this that allow me to return to a text and continually refine my depth of understanding and the richness of the interaction within Microsoft Dynamics AX.

This book is a must have! Be you an experienced implementer, someone wanting to understand the AX supply chain functionality, or a user wanting to better understand what functionality is available.

Product Description
To stay competitive and meet market expectations in a global economy, both domestic and foreign companies must realign their manufacturing processes, make improvements, and increase their manufacturing capabilities. With large numbers of employees working in a network of domestic and foreign facilities, production processes are as varied as the products being produced. Manufacturing managers need a manufacturing plan or strategy that will bring structure to this complex environment.

In Manufacturing Strategy: How to Formulate and Implement a Winning Plan, 2nd Edition, John Miltenburg offers a sensible and systematic method to: (1) evaluate domestic and foreign factories and international manufacturing and (2) plan the appropriate manufacturing strategy to be first in the market.

Incorporating comments and suggestions from managers who used the first edition of Manufacturing Strategy, John Miltenburg expands and improves on his focus in the areas of: International Manufacturing — where the focus is on a company's international network of factories; Competitive Strategy — where managers must understand the role manufacturing strategy plays in their company's business strategy; and Manufacturing Programs — showing how programs such as quality management, six sigma, agile manufacturing, and supply chain management fit within the manufacturing strategy.

Manufacturing Strategy gives managers a common language for dealing with manufacturing problems at both strategic and operational levels. It improves communication between manufacturing managers and those outside manufacturing (who will now have a better understanding of what manufacturing can and cannot do). ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Much of the hoopla surrounding quality circles, teams, and high-performance work systems has been based on anecdotes and very thin evidence. It has not been established that those employee involvement strategies amount to anything more than another series of management fads or ruses designed to get more out of workers without giving them anything in return. This revelatory book, written by some of the skeptics, lays some of the suspicion to rest.

Based on their visits to 44 plants and surveys of more than 4,000 employees, Eileen Appelbaum, Thomas Bailey, Peter Berg, and Arne L. Kalleberg concluded that companies are indeed more successful when managers share knowledge and power with workers and when workers assume increased responsibility and discretion.

The study of steel, apparel, and medical electronics and imaging plants revealed much. In self-directed teams, workers were able to eliminate bottlenecks and coordinate the work process. In task forces created to improve quality, they communicated with individuals outside their own work groups and were able to solve problems. Expensive equipment in steel mills operated with fewer interruptions, turnaround and labor costs were cut in apparel factories, and costly inventories of components and medical equipment were reduced.

And what did the employees think? The worker survey showed that jobs in participatory work systems often provide more challenging tasks and more opportunities for creativity. Employees in apparel had higher hourly earnings; those in steel had both higher hourly earnings and higher job satisfaction. Workers in more participatory settings were no more likely than others to report heavy workloads or excessive demands on their time.They were, however, less likely to report involuntary overtime or conflict with co-workers, and were more likely to be satisfied with their surroundings.

Manufacturing Advantage provides the best assessment available of the effectiveness of high-performance work systems. Freestanding chapters near the end of the book provide full documentation of research data without interrupting the narrative flow. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description

"While much has been written about the industrial revolution," writes Lawrence Peskin, "we rarely read about industrial revolutionaries." This absence, he explains, reflects the preoccupation of both classical and Marxist economics with impersonal forces rather than with individuals. In Manufacturing Revolution Peskin deviates from both dominant paradigms by closely examining the words and deeds of individual Americans who made things in their own shops, who met in small groups to promote industrialization, and who, on the local level, strove for economic independence.

In speeches, petitions, books, newspaper articles, club meetings, and coffee--house conversations, they fervently discussed the need for large-scale American manufacturing a half-century before the Boston Associates built their first factory. Peskin shows how these economic pioneers launched a discourse that continued for decades, linking industrialization to the cause of independence and guiding the new nation along the path of economic ambition. Based upon extensive research in both manuscript and printed sources from the period between 1760 and 1830, this book will be of interest to historians of the early republic and economic historians as well as to students of technology, business, and industry.

4-0 out of 5 stars Painstaking analysis of early ideas about industrialization
Manufacturing Revolution is a thoughtful examination of how ideas about manufacturing, and the role of the state in promoting economic development, evolved from the 1760s to the 1820s.Peskin argues that the rejection of the British imperial system was by no means a rejection of mercantilism per se, and that a philosophy of neomercantilism, often based at the state level, underpinned early American industrialization.He points out that the very definitions of such essential terms as "mechanic" and "manufacturing" were in flux in this period, and ambivalence about whether small home producers were "manufacturers" muddied the public discourse, while also making possible alliances based on creative misunderstanding.Peskin's writing can be tedious at times, as can be his reecurring ambivalence about whether changes in economic thought promoted real economic change or vice versa.With its complex material and sometimes plodding style, Manufacturing Revolution is unlikely to interest non-specialists, but those who plod through it will find Peskin's arguments careful and informative.

Product Description
Rapid Manufacturing is a new area of manufacturing developed from a family of technologies known as Rapid Prototyping. These processes have already had the effect of both improving products and reducing their development time; this in turn resulted in the development of the technology of Rapid Tooling, which implemented Rapid Prototyping techniques to improve its own processes. Rapid Manufacturing has developed as the next stage, in which the need for tooling is eliminated. It has been shown that it is economically feasible to use existing commercial Rapid Prototyping systems to manufacture series parts in quantities of up to 20,000 and customised parts in quantities of hundreds of thousands. This form of manufacturing can be incredibly cost-effective and the process is far more flexible than conventional manufacturing.

Rapid Manufacturing: An Industrial Revolution for the Digital Age addresses the academic fundamentals of Rapid Manufacturing as well as focussing on case studies and applications across a wide range of industry sectors. As a technology that allows manufacturers to create products without tools, it enables previously impossible geometries to be made. This book is abundant with images depicting the fantastic array of products that are now being commercially manufactured using these technologies.

  1. Includes contributions from leading researchers working at the forefront of industry.
  2. Features detailed illustrations throughout.

Rapid Manufacturing: An Industrial Revolution for the Digital Age is a groundbreaking text that provides excellent coverage of this fast emerging industry. It will interest manufacturing industry practitioners in research and development, product design and materials science, as well as having a theoretical appeal to researchers and post-graduate students in manufacturing engineering, product design, CAD/CAM and CIFM. ...
