Description:

Freivaldsaddresses the increasing global competition and the fact that every industry, business, and service organization is restructuring itself to operate more effectively.Cost-effectiveness and product reliability without excess capacity are the keys to successful activity in business, industry, and government. These keys are the end results of methods engineering. The 12th edition ofMethods, Standards, and Work Designwill provide practical, up-to-date descriptions of engineering methods to measure, analyze, and design manual work. The text emphasizes both the manual components and the cognitive aspects of work, recognizing the gradual decline of the manufacturing sector and the growth of the service sector. Theimportance of ergonomics and work design as part of methods engineering emphasizes not only increased productivity, but also to improve worker health and safetyand thus, company bottom-line costs.
