The principles of scientific management and the advocacy for staff specialists to help managers implement scientific management gave birth to the discipline of ‘Industrial Engineering'. Charles Buxton Going authored the first textbook on industrial engineering.
Principles of Scientific Management:
The operators have to be selected scientifically and then trained in standard methods.
There has to be cooperation between men and managers so as to insure all of the work being done is in accordance with the principles of the science which has been developed.
There has to be an almost equal division of the work and the responsibility between the management and the workmen.
The management takes over all work for which they are better fitted than the workmen, while in the past almost all of the work and the greater part of the responsibility of operations were thrown upon the men.
