Developing Assets that Meet The Needs of Owners

By Daniel Daley

2011, 250pp, illus.,ISBN: 978-0-8311-3437-2, $44.95

None of the few Design for Reliability (DFR) books currently available addresses the process from the owner’s (or buyer’s) perspective. Instead, they approach DFR strictly from the seller’s (or manufacturer’s) viewpoint. As a result, few assets are designed and developed with the intent to meet the future owner’s spe- cific needs for reliability, availability, and maintainability over the life of the asset. In this groundbreaking new book, Dan Daley intends to correct the imbalance in how DFR is often implemented by providing owners with the tools they need to ensure that their requirements - not the seller’s - are followed in developing new assets. This book will be an invaluable guide to everyone involved in the design, development, or purchase of new assets. It will help owners take the necessary steps to get what they really need, and it will help sellers “deliv- er the goods” that their customers – the owners – actually want.

FEATURES

Explains how to properly integrate DFR activities with conventional design activities.

Provides a simple system to ensure DFR activities are completed on time.

Provides spreadsheets and forms needed to portray design results in a clear and usable format.

Includes the tables and forms needed to support the design processes and procedures presented in each chapter.

Includes appendices that provide an example specification that owners can modify when procuring a new asset and example tables useful in assessing how well the DFR process has met the owner’s needs.

Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices WORKBOOK

By Ramesh Gulati

May 2012, 225pp, illus., ISBN: 978-0-8311-3435-8, $24.95

Drawing upon the author’s many years of shop floor and management experience in a variety of industries, this bestseller is designed to provide a basic yet thorough understanding of Maintenance and Reliability “Best Practices.” This book recognizes that to implement best practices requires a workforce with a thorough understand- ing and knowledge of Maintenance and Reliability principles and the available technologies. But implementation is not as simple as just put- ting something new into effect. To truly implement a best practice requires learning, relearning, benchmarking, and realizing better ways of ensuring high reliability and availability of equipment and systems. This book explains and supports this ongoing process, and is an essential guide and reference for everyone who wants to ensure that their company’s assets are operating as and when needed and at reasonable cost. It is ideal for designers who design the equipment; operators who operate; and maintainers who maintain, as well as warehouse and store per- sonnel who procure and supply materials; engineers who improve the reliability; and human resource professionals who provide and arrange for a work force.

Easy to read, it provides step-by-step instructions with many illustrations. Since there are specific detailing tech- niques used, a novice can quickly learn these along with an understanding of why they are used. A steel detailer works from drawings provided by an architect or general contractor that many times cross disciplines. Thus, there needs to be an understanding of stairs, platforms, foundations, and masonry construction. The detailer must also have knowledge of materials and of welding processes and symbols. These topics are explained in great detail. The appendices are comprised of common reference materials which are virtually all in the public domain. Ideal for students in two-year college architectural, construction, civil, drafting, or CAD technology programs, it is also useful to detailers, engineers, architects, steel fabricators and erectors, and general contractors.

Each of the four volumes is an independent treatise on the subject of mechanisms. The books are similar in size and general character, but the contents are different. The mechanisms described are grouped into chapters according to general types. A complete index, is arranged by function. It is easy to find the class of movement desired and enables you to compare mechanisms which are similar in purpose but different in design. The descriptions and illustrations are confined to the important and fundamental elements, so that time is not wasted on useless or irrelevant details. You are told briefly what each mechanism consists of, how it operates, and the features which make it of special interest. The particular mechanisms have been selected because they have stood the test of actual practice. Among the mechanisms described and illus- trated by working diagrams are: cam applications and special cam designs; intermittent motions from gears and cams; interlocking devices; valve diagrams; reversing mechanisms of special design; tripping or stop mechanisms; drives of crank type for reciprocating driven members; feeding mechanisms and auxiliary devices; feeding and ejecting mechanisms; and many more.

Die Design Fundamentals, Third Edition

It provides balanced coverage of relevant fundamentals and real-world practices so that students, apprentices and on-the-job professionals can understand the important and often complex interrelationships between die design and the economic factors involved in manufacturing sheet- metal forming products. Following introductory material and a discussion of 20 types of dies in Chapter 2, the design process of a representative die is separated into seventeen distinct chapters. Each chapter is one step which is illustrated in two ways; first, as a portion of an engineering drawing, that is, as the compo- nent is actually drawn on the design. Second, the die design is shown pictorially in order to improve the user’s visualization. In successive sections each step is detailed as it is applied to the design of the various types of dies listed in Chapter 2.

Edmund Isakov Metalcutting Series Cutting Data for Turning of Steel

By Edmund Isakov Ph.D., 2008, 250 pp, illus. ISBN: 978-0-8311-3314-6 $49.95

Machining is one of the most important manufacturing processes, which remove unwanted material in the form of chips from a workpiece. Material removal operations are among the most expensive; in the U.S. alone, more than $100 billion were spent on machining in 1999. These high costs put tremendous economic pressures on production managers and engineers as they struggle to find ways to increase productivity. Machining recommendations provided in this book cover turning since it allows removing more material per unit of time and consuming more power at the rouging operations than end milling, boring or drilling. Machining recommenda- tions relate to cutting speeds, feed rates, and depth of cuts. Such recommendations depend on the workpiece material properties and the cutting tool material. Workpiece materials described in this book are the most commonly used grades of carbon, alloy, stainless, tool, and maraging steels. Cutting tool materials are cemented carbides, cermets, and ceramics.

Implementation Strategies That Work

By John W. Davis

200 pages, 6 x 9, illus., ISBN: 978-0-8311-3385-6 $39.95

Divided into three basic sections, this unique resource provides an understandable and implementable approach to inserting Lean in a manufacturing operation, pointing out the stumbling blocks and pitfalls to avoid. Its goal is to to help American manufacturing more effectively go about the task of making Lean a viable process. The significance of the work is that, if followed, it could change the entire course of how Lean Manufacturing is implemented in the United States and help manufacturing, in general, to become more competitive on a world wide scale. The first section addresses three basic issues which if addressed and resolved, would serve to move the process forward in a much more rapid and effective manner. The second section focuses on how to fully resolve the issues noted and details four levels of Lean Implementation and how they can be measured, in terms of progress. The third section deals with the more advanced aspects of Lean Manufacturing, including such things as how to engage administrative and supporting functions in the process (Accounting, Materials, Sales and Marketing, etc.); How and why to perform a Core Process Analysis (in order to decide which processes should be considered for outsourcing); How to incorporate “Owner-Operators” in the process; the importance of 18 month rolling implementation plan and more.

The key to understanding how to produce products with low response time, low inventory, and flexibility can be found in this important text. Using a systematic approach, this unique analysis of contemporary manufac- turing processes identifies family characteristics of individual processes to facilitate learning. In all, six fam- ilies of SHAPING processes that change the basic geometry of shape of a workpiece (Mechanical, Mass Reducing, Thermal Mass Reducing, Chemical Mass Reducing, Mass Conserving, Consolidation, and Joining) and four families of NON-SHAPING processes that modify the engineering and aesthetic properties of mate- rials (Hardening, Softening, Surface Preparation, and Surface Coatings) are identified and studied. This clas- sification, or taxonomy, now used in the United States and Europe, is a valuable tool in identifying process- es and their capabilities. Using the same classification system, detailed descriptions of each individual process can be found in the Manufacturing Processes Reference Guide by the same authors.
