An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design, 2nd edition, is a guide to process plant design for both students and professional engineers. The book covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programs and key drawings produced by professional engineers as aids to design; subjects that are usually learned on the job rather than in education. You will learn how to produce smarter plant design through the use of computer tools, including Excel and AutoCAD, “What If Analysis, statistical tools, and Visual Basic for more complex problems. The book also includes a wealth of selection tables, covering the key aspects of professional plant design which engineering students and early-career engineers tend to find most challenging. Professor Moran draws on over 20 years’ experience in process design to create an essential foundational book ideal for those who are new to process design, compliant with both professional practice and the IChemE degree accreditation guidelines. Includes new and expanded content, including illustrative case studies and practical examples Explains how to deliver a process design that meets both business and safety criteria Covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programs and key drawings as aids to design Includes a comprehensive set of selection tables, covering aspects of professional plant design which early-career designers find most challenging

Making Innovation Work presents a formal innovation process proven to work at HP, Microsoft, and Toyota to help ordinary managers drive top and bottom line growth from innovation. The authors have drawn on their unsurpassed innovation consulting experience -- as well as the most thorough review of innovation research ever performed. They'll show what works, what doesn't, and how to use management tools to dramatically increase the payoff from innovation investments. Learn how to define the right strategy for effective innovation, how to structure an organization to innovate best, how to implement management systems to assess ongoing innovation, how to incentivize teams to deliver, and much more. This book offers the first authoritative guide to using metrics at every step of the innovation process -- from idea creation and selection through prototyping and commercialization. This updated edition refreshes the examples used throughout the book and features a new introduction that gives currency to the principles covered throughout. ¿ For years, Creating Breakthrough Products has offered an indispensable roadmap for uncovering new opportunities, identifying what customers really value, and building products and services that redefine markets -- or create entirely new markets. Now, the authors have thoroughly updated their classic book, adding brand-new chapters on service design and global innovation, plus new insights, best practices, and case studies from both U.S. and global companies. Their new second edition presents: Revolutionary (Apple-style) and evolutionary (Disney-style) approaches to innovation: choosing between them, and making either one work More coverage of Value Opportunity Analysis and ethnography New case studies ranging from Navistar's latest long-haul truck to P+G's reinvention of Herbal Essences, plus updates to existing cases New coverage of the emerging environment of product-service ecosystems Additional visual maps and illustrations that make the book more intuitive and accessible Readers will find new insights into identifying Product Opportunity Gaps that can lead to enormous success, navigating the "Fuzzy Front End" of product development, and leveraging contributions from diverse product teams -- while staying relentlessly focused on their customers' values and lifestyles, from strategy through execution.

Written by America's most famous engineering storyteller and educator, this abecedarium is one engineer's selection of thoughts, quotations, anecdotes, facts, trivia and arcana relating to the practice, history, culture and traditions of his profession. The entries reflect decades of reading, writing, talking and thinking about engineers and engineering, and range from brief essays to lists of great engineering achievements. This work is organized alphabetically and more like a dictionary than an encyclopedia. It is not intended to be read from first page to last, but rather to be dipped into, here and there, as the mood strikes the reader. In time, it is hoped, this book should become the source to which readers go first when they encounter a vague or obscure reference to the softer side of engineering.
