Work Systems - 2013 - Mikell P. Groover - Book Information

This book has many topics relevant to the subject introduction to industrial engineering. Value analysis, and optimization are two areas that are to be added.

Work Systems: Pearson New International Edition: The Methods, Measurement and Management of Work
Mikell P. Groover
Pearson Education, Limited, Nov 1, 2013 - 744 pages
For sophomore or junior-level courses in industrial engineering. Divided into two major areas of study - work systems, and work methods, measurement, and management - this guidebook provides up-to-date, quantitative coverage of work systems and how work is analyzed and designed. Thorough, broad-based coverage addresses nearly all of the traditional topics of industrial engineering that relate to work systems and work science. The author's quantitative approach summarizes many aspects of work systems, operations analysis, and work measurement using mathematical equations and quantitative examples.
