Metrication for the Manager.
Benedict, John T.
The scope of this book covers metrication management. It was created to fill the middle management need for condensed, authoritative information about the metrication process and was conceived as a working tool and a prime reference source. Written from a management point of view, it touches on virtually all aspects of metrication and highlights the important factors. Emphasis is on the manufacturing business; however, information and ideas apply equally well to other organizations and businesses. Contents include chapters on planning, engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, marketing, computer systems, training, and cost. (MP)
