This book will provide a quick reference on Work Measurement. While the nature of the work may differ, measuring work is fundamental to any industrial or service activity. It’s needed to determine such things as the amount a person should be paid, how much time should it take to perform an activity, what is an acceptable days’ work, or how any two or more methods or designs compare. This book provides non-industrial engineers with the why and the how work is measured in order to perform their jobs.

Brand owners are in crisis. Consumer trust is at an all time low. Over 95% of all consumer product launches in the packaged goods sector fail to achieve their goals for success. This book gives a clear answer to why success rates are so low in the consumer packaged good industry and lays out a roadmap for product innovation - to make ideas successful. This book will inspire the reader to make a paradigm shift in how they approach product innovation - to be driven by the science of consumer behavior. The basic premise for this book is that emotions are at the root of all consumer motivations. Therefore, an innovation process focused on identifying how to turn up or down emotions that drive behavior will lead to product success. The applications of this process will be presented with several product success stories that show that understanding consumer behavior leads to deeper emotive connectivity, a broader playing field for differentiation, and speed to market. Using case studies and real-world examples of product launch successes and failures, Behavior Driven Innovation is a must-read for those involved in product development, consumer research, and marketing. Explores the role that emotion plays in consumer decision making Case studies of product successes (and failures!) and the role behavioral understanding played Provides insights into understanding the "whys" of consumer behavior, using a pull strategy to rapidly learn what consumers want, and designing for emotional impact Provides a blueprint for the creation of nimble innovation strategies

Design for Manufacturing assists anyone not familiar with various manufacturing processes in better visualizing and understanding the relationship between part design and the ease or difficulty of producing the part. Decisions made during the early conceptual stages of design have a great effect on subsequent stages. In fact, quite often more than 70% of the manufacturing cost of a product is determined at this conceptual stage, yet manufacturing is not involved. Through this book, designers will gain insight that will allow them to assess the impact of their proposed design on manufacturing difficulty. The vast majority of components found in commercial batch-manufactured products, such as appliances, computers and office automation equipment are either injection molded, stamped, die cast, or (occasionally) forged. This book emphasizes these particular, most commonly implemented processes. In addition to chapters on these processes, the book touches upon material process selection, general guidelines for determining whether several components should be combined into a single component or not, communications, the physical and mechanical properties of materials, tolerances, and inspection and quality control. In developing the DFM methods presented in this book, he has worked with over 30 firms specializing in injection molding, die-casting, forging and stamping. Implements a philosophy which allows for easier and more economic production of designs Educates designers about manufacturing Emphasizes the four major manufacturing processes

New products often fail not because they are bad products, but because they don't meet consumer expectations or are poorly marketed. In other cases, the marketing is spot on, but the product itself does not perform. These failures drive home the need to understand the market and the consumer in order to deliver a product which fulfills the two equally important goals of consumer trial and repeat purchase. The linkage of these issues is often compromised in the "innovate or die" world of corporate new products. An Integrated Approach to New Food Product Development explores this inter-relationship and the inter-relationship of the key disciplines essential for marketplace success. Proven Approaches from Industry Experts The book introduces The Success Equation based on the interrelationship of the key tasks critical to defining and executing for new product success. The sections that follow highlight the importance of every task and the impact of each disciplines’ contribution throughout the process in optimizing the success of the product. The book explores integration of all parts, from defining consumer needs and food concept to understanding the importance of positioning, packaging and trade, to the technology and manufacturing required to accurately meet these needs. The Success Equation encompasses the elements that not only dramatically increase a product’s success, but also make that success increasingly sustainable. Combines Solid Theory with Actual Marketing Practice The text blends academic, ivory tower research with the experiences of seasoned, real market practitioners, which when combined, provide the tools for successful new product innovation. The concise, hands-on information includes advanced and emerging innovations in management, marketing, technology, strategy, consumer research and sales. The integrated coverage provides a complete picture of the expertise and knowledge needed to leverage new product development into commercial success.
