DESCRIPTION

Facility Design & Engineering, Third Edition, is written for undergraduates and industrial practitioners. Perfect for a course in industrial engineering or a course in material handling, the text will help students design all aspects of a facility, including the building itself, material handling, services and environment, and layout and operation of the facility.

The self-contained chapters allow instructors to cover the material in a different order than the one presented here, or to expand on or omit certain chapters as desired. The end-of-chapter reference lists and websites help the interested reader dig deeper and learn more about a specific topic. The problems and projects included at the end of each chapter encourage students to apply their learning to real-life activities.

New to this edition are extensive updates of all chapters; a new chapter, Strategies/Tactics, that consolidates information about lean manufacturing, JIT, and supply chain management; end-of-chapter lists of relevant websites; a glossary of key concepts; and DESIGN computer programs available for download from the Web, covering eight categories: forms, anthropometry, environment, lift/move, work physiology, stat/math, time, and conversion.
