This comprehensive text provides a glimpse of various theories and principles of management along with their applications in engineering industries. The authors have explained classical management, economic analysis, techno-economic life and various quantitative techniques associated with plant and facilities layout, behavioural studies, and human relations. Ergonomics and human factors in engineering has assumed a new dimension to design and manufacturing of products. The application of these principles, in relation to human effort and plant efficiency, has been discussed at length. It also discusses the biodynamic analyses of man–machine system in a stress-free environment.
This practice-oriented book, which contains a large number of worked-out examples, exercises and other pedagogic features, is intended for the undergraduate students of Industrial and Production Engineering. It can also be used as a reference by practising engineers.
