Ideal for those with no prior manufacturing background or knowledge, this book provides an exceptionally "real-world" exploration of manufacturing principles, the functioning team, and basic improvement practices — showing how operators and technicians actually work in manufacturing today.

Uses actual case studies — from operators and technicians in manufacturing — describing modern-day dilemmas of manufacturing firms — often with no right or wrong answer. Covers the statistics and probability needed by an operator or technician in manufacturing — rather than those that are more appropriate for engineers or statisticians. Uses a manufacturing example to show how to manually plot a Statistical Process Control (SPC) chart. Covers manufacturing improvement programs; manufacturing teams; the process; sources of process waste; improvement; continual improvement; basic statistics for improvement; Statistical Process Control Charts; interpreting SPC charts for team action; process capability and improvement.

For technicians and operators interested in the process of manufacturing.
