Practical Machinery Management for Process Plants Volume 2

Author: Heinz P. Bloch
Publisher: Gulf Professional Publishing
ISBN: UOM:39015040613583
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This newly expanded edition shows plant engineers and maintenance personnel how to systematically analyze and troubleshoot machinery distress and component problems. You will find complete coverage of gears, rolling-element bearings, sliding bearings, bolting, couplings, and mechanical seals, with more on pumps, compressors, electric motors, steam turbines, and similar equipment. Eliminate just the symptoms, and not the root cause, and you will again face equipment downtime and component failure. This book documents and analyzes actual failure events to give you the know-how to discover not just the problem, but its underlying cause. A new chapter examines root cause analysis and shows how to pursue the cause-and-effect relationship. Details on the practical aspects of metallurgical failure analysis have been added and the chapter on vibration analysis has been thoroughly updated. Reliability professionals, process engineers, plant operators, and repair and maintenance personnel will value this new edition as the standard authority on the subject.

Mit seiner Unternehmensführung ist Toyota seit langem Vorbild für Firmen aus den unterschiedlichsten Branchen. Fast alle Automobilhersteller versuchten mehr oder weniger erfolgreich das legendäre Toyota-Produktionssystem (TPS) zu kopieren, das zum Ziel hat, die Kundenzufriedenheit in den drei Bereichen Qualität, Lieferzeit und Kosten zu erhöhen. Aufgrund des verschärften Wettbewerbs in der Automobilbranche drängt sich jetzt die Frage nach den Faktoren des Erfolgs immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Jeffrey K. Liker befasst sich in seinem Buch „Der Toyota Weg“ ausführlich mit dem warum und wieso. Aus zahlreichen Interviews und eigenen Anschauungen filtert der Autor die 14 Managementprinzipien heraus, die den Kern des Toyota-Erfolgs ausmachen. Diese Prinzipien untermauert er eindrucksvoll mit einer Fülle von Details, Anekdoten und Interview-Auszügen. Leicht verständlich erklärt er dem Leser die Managementsysteme, die Denkweise und die Philosophie, auf denen der Erfolg von Toyota basiert. So vermittelt er wertvolle Erkenntnisse, die sich auf jeden beliebigen Geschäftszweig bzw. jede Geschäftssituation übertragen lassen.

Innovationsmanagement f r technische Produkte

Author: Walter Eversheim
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642557682
Release Date: 2013-03-07
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Ideen allein führen nicht zum Erfolg: Produktinnovation in der Industrie ist die Umsetzung von Know-how in neue, erfolgreiche Produkte. Diese Umsetzung ist nicht mehr allein zufallsgesteuert zu betreiben, wenn Unternehmen langfristig überleben wollen. Die systematische Planung von Innovationen ist daher für den Industriebetrieb Voraussetzung zum Erfolg, wird jedoch heute nur selten durchgehend betrieben. Dies liegt vor allem daran, dass die Methoden zur Generierung und Bewertung von Innovationsansätzen nicht ausreichend bekannt und nur selten in den Innovationsprozess eingegliedert sind. Methodisches Vorgehen zur Innovationsplanung ist daher Inhalt dieses Buches. Die systematische Integration der verfügbaren Methoden in eine ganzheitliche Innovationsplanung wird beschrieben und durch Beispiele aus der Praxis belegt und demonstriert. InnovationRoadMap, Wertanalyse, TRIZ oder Portfolio-Analyse sind nur einige der Schlagworte, die der planende Ingenieur kennen lernt und hier - in den richtigen Kontext gestellt - erläutert findet.
