This book describes how manufacturing enterprises, by reinforcing their existing monitoring and control of manufacturing processes, can successfully face the ever-increasing pressure from internal and external environments to maintain their competitive advantage. Numerous performance measurement systems have been elaborated to satisfy these requirements, stressing the importance of financial and operational metrics. It also highlights the fact that research on generating and linking financial and operational metrics, especially in real-time, has not garnered sufficient attention to date. The book follows an approach that integrates enterprises across different levels and departments. By computing and linking the financial and operational metrics in real-time, the book demonstrates how to provide a comprehensive view of an entire enterprise.

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls more than sixty years ago has revealed a wealth of literary compositions which rework the Hebrew Bible in various ways. This genre seems to have been a popular literary form in ancient Judaism literature. However, the Qumran texts of this type are particularly interesting for they offer for the first time a large sample of such compositions in their original languages, Hebrew and Aramaic. Since the rewritten Bible texts do not use the particular style and nomenclature specific to the literature produced by the Qumran community. Many of these texts are unknown from any other sources, and have been published only during the last two decades. They therefore became the object of intense scholarly study. However, most the attention has been directed to the longer specimens, such as the Hebrew Book of Jubilees and the Aramaic Genesis Apocryphon. The present volume addresses the less known and poorly studied pieces, a group of eleven small Hebrew texts that rework the Hebrew Bible. It provides fresh editions, translations and detailed commentaries for each one. The volume thus places these texts within the larger context of the Qumran library, aiming at completing the data about the rewritten Bible.

Most textbooks on business process management focus on either the nuts and bolts of computer simulation or the managerial aspects of business processes. Covering both technical and managerial aspects of business process management, Business Process Modeling, Simulation and Design, Second Edition presents the tools to design effective business processes and the management techniques to operate them efficiently. New to the Second Edition Three completely revised chapters that incorporate ExtendSim 8 An introduction to simulation A chapter on business process analytics Developed from the authors’ many years of teaching process design and simulation courses, the text provides students with a thorough understanding of numerous analytical tools that can be used to model, analyze, design, manage, and improve business processes. It covers a wide range of approaches, including discrete event simulation, graphical flowcharting tools, deterministic models for cycle time analysis and capacity decisions, analytical queuing methods, and data mining. Unlike other operations management books, this one emphasizes user-friendly simulation software as well as business processes, rather than only manufacturing processes or general operations management problems. Taking an analytical modeling approach to process design, this book illustrates the power of simulation modeling as a vehicle for analyzing and designing business processes. It teaches how to apply process simulation and discusses the managerial implications of redesigning processes. The ExtendSim software is available online and ancillaries are available for instructors.

Dreamers may envision our future, but it is the pragmatists who build it. Solve the right problem in the right way, mankind moves forward. Solve the right problem in the wrong way or the wrong problem in the right way, however clever or ingenious the solution, neither credits mankind. Instead, this misfire demonstrates a failure to appreciate a crucial step in pragmatic problem solving: systems integration. The first book to address the underlying premises of systems integration and how to exposit them in a practical and productive manner, Engineering Systems Integration: Theory, Metrics, and Methods looks at the fundamental nature of integration, exposes the subtle premises to achieve integration, and posits a substantial theoretical framework that is both simple and clear. Offering systems managers and systems engineers the framework from which to consider their decisions in light of systems integration metrics, the book isolates two basic questions, 1) Is there a way to express the interplay of human actions and the result of system interactions of a product with its environment?, and 2) Are there methods that combine to improve the integration of systems? The author applies the four axioms of General Systems Theory (holism, decomposition, isomorphism, and models) and explores the domains of history and interpretation to devise a theory of systems integration, develop practical guidance applying the three frameworks, and formulate the mathematical constructs needed for systems integration. The practicalities of integrating parts when we build or analyze systems mandate an analysis and evaluation of existing integrative frameworks of causality and knowledge. Integration is not just a word that describes a best practice, an art, or a single discipline. The act of integrating is an approach, operative in all disciplines, in all we see, in all we do.

Contributions to Rework Prevention in Construction Projects

Literature usually suggests that construction organization can reduce the costs derived from rework implementing quality management systems.

Author: Marcel Macarulla Martí

Literature usually suggests that construction organization can reduce the costs derived from rework implementing quality management systems. Most common challenges and obstacles that construction organizations face during the implementation process and use of quality management systems are related to "how" the information can be recorded in an effective way, and "what" can be done with the recorded information. The aim of this dissertation is to focus on improving the defects recording process in the construction industry, and to propose methods and tools to use defects recorded on-site to prevent and reduce rework in the construction industry. The dissertation starts with the development of a conceptual model used to characterize defects. The current model is based on previously existing models and their adaptation to the context of the Spanish residential building sector. The model is based on the enumeration of the parameters that allow characterizing defects. The final model includes 6 parameters, with a list of standardized words and their definitions. The pre-established vocabulary lists are based on existing classification systems proposed by recognised organisations, authors and research reports, but then adapted to the Spanish context. However, in terms of defects, no standardised list exists. For this reason a taxonomy of defects is further developed for the Spanish construction sector. The aforementioned taxonomy consists of 15 main categories and 19 subcategories. The dissertation continues with the development of a methodology to track defects in the construction industry and its implementation in an IT tool called MoBuild. The obtained tracking system is based on images and tags. The strengths the abovementioned tracking system is to record information in a structured way and enable further statistical analysis of the recorded information. The new approach implemented in the MoBuild application allows practitioners to reduce the time of the recording process, facilitating the implementation of quality management systems, such as ISO 9000 in construction organizations. Furthermore, research proposes a quantitative methodology for dealing with potential adverse quality risks during the pre-construction stages of residential buildings and other similar types of constructions. The strength of this methodology lies in the fact that it helps designers to explicitly consider on-site quality during the design process. Designers can compare several design alternatives during the design phase, and determine the corresponding overall quality risk levels of a construction project without their creative talents being restricted. The methodology is especially worthwhile for those less-experienced designers who lack the required skills and knowledge to recognize quality risks in developing optimal designs. The methodology also serves as an assessment tool for construction companies. It can be used to measure the potential quality risks of construction projects and its subsequent construction activities. The suggested methodology also allows construction companies to optimize their on-site performance in the quality domain during the planning and preparation stages. Finally, this dissertation analyses the quality perceived by the end users during the post-handover stage. Different statistical methods are used to demonstrate the usefulness of the recorded data for the construction organizations. The aim is to highlight the essential role that records play in the operation of a quality company, in particular by providing essential evidence of the operation of quality systems. The aforementioned statistical analysis determines the type of defects detected; the elements affected by defects; the areas where defects are detected; which subcontractors produce defects; the source of the detected defects; the origin of the detected defects and; the influence of the building type and its characteristics in the number of defects detected.

Of all the components that go into electronic equipment, the printed circuit probably requires more manufacturing operations-each of which must be per formed by a skilled person-than any other. As a shift supervisor early in my printed circuit career, I had to hire and train personnel for all job functions. The amount of responsibility delegated to my subordinates depended strictly on how well I had been able to train them. Training people can be a trying experience and is always a time-consuming one. It behooved me to help my workers obtain the highest degree of job under standing and skill that they and I were capable of. One hindrance to effective teaching is poor continuity of thought, for example, having to say to a trainee, "Wait a minute; forget what I just told you. We have to go back and do some thing else first. " It was in trying to avoid pitfalls such as this that I undertook a detailed examination of the processes involved, what I thought each trainee had to know, and what questions they would most frequently ask. From this analysis I developed the various process procedures. Only after I had done so was I able to train effectively and with the confidence that I was doing the best possible job. Answers had to be at hand for all of their questions and in what ever detail they needed to know.

Far from being the passive containers for semiconductor devices of the past, the packages in today's high performance computers pose numerous challenges in interconnecting, powering, cooling and protecting devices. While semiconductor circuit performance measured in picoseconds continues to improve, computer performance is expected to be in nanoseconds for the rest of this century -a factor of 1000 difference between on-chip and off-chip performance which is attributable to losses associated with the package. Thus the package, which interconnects all the chips to form a particular function such as a central processor, is likely to set the limits on how far computers can evolve. Multichip packaging, which can relax these limits and also improve the reliability and cost at the systems level, is expected to be the basis of all advanced computers in the future. In addition, since this technology allows chips to be spaced more closely, in less space and with less weight, it has the added advantage of being useful in portable consumer electronics as well as in medical, aerospace, automotive and telecommunications products. The multichip technologies with which these applications can be addressed are many. They range from ceramics to polymer-metal thin films to printed wiring boards for interconnections; flip chip, TAB or wire bond for chip-to-substrate connections; and air or water cooling for the removal of heat.
