Book Description :

To many program, project, or construction managers, a complex project seems to be a labyrinth with many hidden dangers. This book is a guide through that labyrinth. It explains best practices and provides insight so they cannot only identify hidden dangers but also effectively manage the construction process to either mitigate or eliminate these risks. The book presents a systems-based approach to construction project management that can facilitate a greater understanding of the complexity inherent in large construction projects and how that complexity can be effectively managed. The systems approach permits the onsite construction project manager to take a complex construction project, break it down into manageable pieces, and ensure that all systems are in alignment with the original goal of the project. This approach combines industrial engineering, project management, and finance into a unified approach for effective management of complex construction projects, ranging from a power plant to a highway project. The book explains how to manage construction projects successfully through an approach based on the three following systems: Project Management System Work Management System Quality Management System The problem with complex programs and projects is that many managers are only equipped with a knowledge of project management. A system for construction is a collection of many processes effectively working together to produce a specific deliverable, which is usually defined in the program or project’s contract. This system has a series of specific inputs and outputs, which are what the customer expects from the company or companies performing the work. This book develops checklists based on these inputs and outputs, which managers can use when first arriving onsite, and provides a "nuts and bolts" approach for managing a complex construction project onsite. The author shares valuable lessons learned during a career of more than thirty years of working on various construction sites around the world. These lessons learned are filled with valuable information to aid readers become more effective as a program, project, or construction manager of complex construction projects.

Book Description :

The overall goal of this project is to adopt and build on three of the Saudi vision 2030 "thriving economy" theme third-level objectives that include (1) Localize military industry, (2) Nurture and support the innovation and entrepreneurship culture, and (3) Grow Small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) contribution to the economy. One of the very important initiatives of the adopted thriving economy theme to the area of concentration is planning to grow the economy by manufacturing half of the defense needs within the Kingdom, with the intention to offset the economy, keep more resources in Saudi Arabia and to create more job opportunities for its citizens. The main research question explores: How can a conceptual model provide value to Saudi military spare parts manufacturing and contribute to the Saudi 2030 Vision? The research process includes creating a conceptual model intended to assist with the fit of low-complexity defense spare parts manufacturing industries, utilizing technology transfer and a business incubator. The model will include (1) adopt a Systems Approach to better understand the nature and the scope of the problem statement (2) Develop a conceptual model that can provide value to the military manufacturing industry. The value provided can be measured by two dimensions: valuable products and growth to the military manufacturing industry. (3) Fit the Saudi military spare parts manufacturing to the developed conceptual model along with the alignment of the adopted Saudi Vision 2030 at the Saudi manufacturing industry level. (4) Validate the conceptual model framework. This conceptual framework will address the need to develop a flexible model that contributes to the current and future challenges as there is a lack of an adequate model to guide Saudi government on how to develop the SMEs defense manufacturing industries in order to become aligned with their country's vision 2030. In summary, the developed model called "Seven Systems for Business Development - 7SBD" conceptual model that could be utilized to define at a high level the system-of-interest. The study has been able to achieve its main aim and objectives. The developed model has been identified per the participants that performed the model validation as being useful and essential especially with respect to promoting growth and development of the military spare parts industry within Saudi Arabia in line with the 2030 Vision.The methodological approach introduces a thorough assessment of the structured procedure and representation framework. All the analysis was performed in order to find answers to the research question. The analysis of the qualitative data in this research was anchored on the qualitative open-end questions. The validation review considers whether the concept model is justifiable in providing valuable products and practical growth to military spare parts manufacturing industry as well as the alignment of the concept with the research methodological strategy. The data analyzed has offered deeper insight into model creation especially with respect to achieving growth and development in the military spare parts manufacturing industry of Saudi Arabia. The study concludes that the 7SBD conceptual model can be adopted for purposes to ensuring that Saudi Arabia military spare parts manufacturing grow and develop as per the Vision 2030, since it can proceed into the next phase of system development. Hence, the proposed model is indeed a good foundation for promoting and growing such industries.

Book Description :

IMS'97, the fourth in the series of IFAC Workshops on Intelligent Manufacturing Systems, was held in Seoul, Korea, on July 21-23, 1997. It was sponsored by the IFAC Technical Committee on Advanced Manufacturing Technology and organized by the Engineering Research Center for Advance Control and Instrumentation at Seoul National University on behalf of the Institute of Control, Automation and Systems Engineers in Korea. Rapid progress in the area of modern manufacturing is probably most evident through the developments in intelligent manufacturing systems. The same fast advancements have made the objective of achieving a balanced technical program a challenging task. The International Program Committee (IPC) wanted the Workshop to include the most notable and recent results, but still to reflect the versatility of maturing IMS technologies. In the Workshop, the importance of intelligence in modern manufacturing has gained considerable recognition from engineers and researchers due to today's unforeseen manufacturing environment change. This Workshop focused on the issue "intelligent manufacturing," especially, with two intriguing keynote speeches, a special invited session on the worldwide IMS Project and two tutorial programs as well as the 64 papers from 16 countries worldwide. We do hope that this event has provided the excellent opportunity to identify the future trends as well as exchange and learn ideas and experiences in intelligent manufacturing.

Book Description :

Delivering excellent service to all customers is the key imperative for many sustainable businesses. So why do so many supply chains struggle to fulfill customer requirements at competitive costs? The answer is simple: traditional supply chain planning, which was tailored to a predominantly stable and predictable business environment, cannot handle the new challenges in the world of variability, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—the VUCA world. Companies can either accept the drawbacks that often result in high inventories, poor asset utilization, and unsatisfactory customer service or, they can change their view of the fundamental approach to supply chain management. LEAN Supply Chain Planning: The New Supply Chain Management Paradigm for Process Industries to Master Today’s VUCA World introduces a new paradigm and a new approach to managing variability, uncertainty, and complexity in today’s planning processes and systems. Introducing a cutting-edge supply chain management concept that addresses current problems in the process industry's supply chains, the book presents powerful methods developed by leading research institutes, process industry champions, and supply chain experts. It explains how readers can change their approach to the fundamental planning paradigms in a manner that will help their organizations achieve higher levels of responsiveness, improved levels of customer service, and substantial increases in cost-efficiencies. This holistic practitioner’s guide describes how to establish the right accountabilities for performance management and also provides a set of meaningful metrics to help measure your progress. Supplying detailed guidelines for transforming your supply chain, it includes first-hand reports of leading organizations that have already adopted some of the facets of this paradigm and used the relevant instruments to achieve unprecedented improvements to customer service, supply chain agility, and overall equipment effectiveness.
