5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent How-To Guide
I have been looking long and hard for a simple, step-by-step guide to implementing Lean methodologies in my facility and I have finally found it. Most of the Lean books I've seen up to this point discuss high-level concepts, without detailing the steps and tools needed to put the strategy into practice. However, this book (more of a "how-to" manual, really) outlines all the tasks needed to move from a traditional batch manufacturing system to a Lean environment.

It covers everything from project scoping to line design to Kanban materials movement systems. Not only that, the author provides all the tools (formulas, charts, project management tips, etc.) to guide you through the process. He's also provided methods, like the daily resource planning tool, that help you manage the line after the Lean processes are up and running.

I'm using the guide now for my line reconfiguration, and have gotten it for everyone on my implementation team. This book is good for any manufacturer that is planning to implement Lean, but doesn't have a plan for how to go about it.

Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally! A Pragmatic Approach to Lean Manufacturing!
This is the first book that I have read on Lean Manufacturing that was not a reflection of the author's ego masquerading behind a plethora of platitudes and hedonism. Mr. Hobbs uses a lexicon of terms and applications anybody can understand, making this not only a useful implementation tool, but also a dynamic resource and training tool. As proof, we assembled an implementation team of personnel from all areas of our factory, and were successful in converting two of our product lines in less than twelve weeks simply by following Mr. Hobbs' book. We plan on completing the other seven by the end of Q2. If you want to reap the rewards and benefits as a Lean Manufacturer, I highly recommend this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars A highly recommended "get-things-done" guide
In Lean Manufacturing Implementation: A Complete Execution Manual For Any Size Manufacturer, business consultant Dennis P. Hobbs draws upon his more than thirty years of experience in the manufacturing sector to present a no-nonsense, go-getter business guide offering a project management approach guided by a "how-to" sequence in order to make manufacturing processes lean and efficient. Emphasizing how to make a factory conversion to "Lean Manufacturing" without hiring expensive consultants -- as well as offering practical information concerning resource identification, line design, operational definition, pull chains, pull sequences, replenishment time and more, Lean Manufacturing Implementation is a highly recommended "get-things-done" guide that specifically focuses upon what is needed and necessary to get results. ...

An engineer friend of mine showed me this book and the next day I bought one for myself. Any time I'm faced with a design problem this is the first place I look. The illustrations are very well done and the text descriptions are illuminating and worthwhile reading.

Cheers to Sclater and Chironis!

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative and fun
this book is for the person who likes to fool around in the workshop inventing things. I like to do that as often as I can and this book has really boosted my productivity in the shop. Before I start on a new project I like to scan the book again and see if I can use any of the ideas. I never fail to find something I can use. The drawings are a big help in understanding the devices. There is no other book like this. It is a gathering of all the neat gadgets all in one book.

The author seems to have no graduate level education. This book is filled with empirical equations and has no academic deapth. The author himself does not know where each equations come from. Most of the exercise problems are the exact copy from other books. There is no reference listed, and it seems a violation of copywrite. Too many typos and wrongly drawn figures bother readers.

This book covers all the fundamental issues related to bolts and bolted joints. It is very easy to read, and does not go too deeply into technical subjects, but gives the reader a full appreciation for the issues involved. As a materials engineer I appreciated the section on bolting materials. As a design engineer, I found the sections on designing bolted joints very helpful. As Plato expressed long ago, the wiser you are, the less you realize you know. After reading this book, design engineers not familiar with all the issues will likely not take bolts and bolted joints for granted. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A terrific book
Illustrated Sourcebook of Mechanical Components has lots and lots and lots of line drawings of machinery components. The drawings are clear and simple. Each is accompanied by a well written description, usually a few lines but longer if needed. An interesting book for anyone mechanically inclined. For engineers there are tables and formulas where needed. A great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource
I am an ME for a company which builds CNC's, and like the book very much. The illustrations show each idea without exraneous parts, and the accompanying explanations are very clear. It also has tables and equations to lay out some of the mechanisms. It is an excellent idea jogger and has good entertainment value for people who are mechanically inclined.

5-0 out of 5 stars The jewel of my professional library
I can't thank the author enough for the Illustrated Sourcebook of Mechanical Components. It is as interesting to study as any book I've seen in a long, long time. It is as engrossing as a crossword puzzle can sometimes be. My observation is that the sourcebook presents an almost limitless smorgasbord of engineering examples and principles seasoned with a unique sauce of tinkerer's ingenuity and common sense. Thanks again for the Illustrated Sourcebook of Mechanical Components. It will be the jewel of my professional library.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
Let me say that the book is okay, nothing wrong with the book. But here is my question: What is the purpose of the book, the exact purpose?? I work around tools and shops so when I see a book for $110. I think it must have something new. It does not, and it is at a level where it does not really have enough information to help. It is sort of am overview with pictures and some drawings. Coffee table book on machines - so to speak.

I would recommend forgetting about this book and buy some regular shop manuals or shop guides from a tool supplier. There are a number of one and two volume sets that give a lot more useful information, and very detailed information. Maybe this is for high school students, but not for professional shops.

Sorry but that is my humle opinion. I have the book and it collects dust. My recommendation: check out MACHINERY'S HANDBOOK also on amazon.com.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for the PE EXAM
Norton is an awesome resource. For students going to college it may seem overwhelming. But it is the MOST up to date text on the market on the subject of Machine Design. While taking the PE exam I compared Shigley vs Norton on information, and Norton had all the answers. The author has done a monumental job in bringing the vast spectrum of Machine Design in a very well composed book. I have yet to come across a resource like Norton. In fact, I recommend this book to practicing engineers. Almost every section of the book has real world value. Its worth having on the shelf. I was always into Shigley but Norton is more in line with industry practice as opposed to academic excercises as presented by Shigley.

3-0 out of 5 stars Why buy this when you can buy Shigley?
This text would be OK if there were no other sources on the subject of mechanical design. However, there are! There is a reason that Shigley wrote a professional standard and Norton did not. It has all the details but there are proof-reading and similar errors.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's really a great book...
If you really want to learn and understand mechanical design, Mr. Norton is generous, he teachs everything there is to know. The chapters introduction it's something beyond you can expect from an engineering book. You must have it...

2-0 out of 5 stars not well organized
As a student trying to learn the art of machine design I found that this book was rather unorganized and it wasn't until I had read it and studied the pages time and time again that the principals really became clear.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent procedure, theory and examples.
The book has excellent procedure and theory development and explanation. The end of the chapter problems need extreme help. The questions are redundant, unclear, and are built upon from answers of previous chapter problems, sometimes requiring answering a question from chapters 2, 4, 5, and 6 to get a final answer in a chapter 7 question. Many answers in the back of the book are incorrect, about (50%). Looks like Norton had his TA do his problems. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars An annoying verbiage
I was interesting in buying a professional publication relative to piping engineering and, by chance, I was able to borrow this book from a technical library before doing what can not be undone.

How disappointing !
An annoying verbiage prevails over pages after pages.
Few design guidelines, engineering calculations and good practice recommendations.
For instance, the section dealing with the water hammer phenomenon does not contain any equation !
Supports, insulation, valves, plastic and composite materials, ... are covered in far too general terms.
Even the reduced "dictionary alike" paper format leads to a bulky and difficult to read book where chapters are broken down in dozens of pages.

This book must be viewed as a general introduction to piping design engineering but definitively not as a practical reference for day-to-day design issues.

2-0 out of 5 stars poor book
I Buy this book because needed references, general conditions and good practice to solve practical problems of pipes. However I meet with a tangled book, of little clarity and that in general it doesn't embrace the practical topics well referring a lot to the existent norms. Anyway it serves like support to the different norms to go developing a project but alone as reference and in any case like a book of easy access to solve problems on site or the day to day problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
This book, actually just a collection of poor small line drawings and brief descriptions, is hardly worth anything.

Impressive title though...

5-0 out of 5 stars A relic of another age...
The full title of this book is _Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements, Embracing All Those Which Are Most Important In Dynamics, Hydraulics, Hydrostatics, Pneumatics, Steam Engines, Mill and other Gearing, Presses, Horology, and Miscellaneous Machinery: and including Many Movements Never Before Published and Several Which Have only Recently Come into Use. At least that was the full title of the seventeenth edition of 1893; the book itself dates back to 1868.

This book is a joy to browse though. It is a little gold mine of ideas for the mechanical designer. Yet, anyone with mechanical aptitude should enjoy it. The many crisp line drawings are presented with a minimum of explanation and no dimensioning. You see, it was assumed back in those days that a person with natural mechanical aptitude could look at a diagram, or a machine, and figure it out. Not only that, but it was assumed that once you had the idea, then you could work out all the details for yourself without having to be told everything down to the last screw size. While there is a descriptive paragraph indexed to every drawing, most of the time you don't really need it.

This book comes from an age when engineers and designers had to have the talent and the knowledge to use the mechanical principles of levers, linkages, cams, gears, etc. to produce a given motion- and to link together many such elegant little mechanisms to get a bigger job done- reliably. This isn't done much anymore. Now most machines are huge, cobbled-up, Rube Goldberg devices of pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, screw actuators, or servo motors- all interconnected by electronic controllers. The whole thing is controlled by software of even more dubious reliability.

Up to the "digital revolution", this book shows how it was always done- it's how I learned it. Of course, once upon a time, a mechanical designer actually had to understand machinery, and the basic principles of physics, and not just how to write code....

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements
Excellent soruce of lots of mechanical ideas. Even though they are from the 1800's, this a wealth of info for engineers and tinkers like me. This helps to understand and lay out simple and complex levers, gearing, and control mechanisms that would be difficult to find anywhere else. A most valuable tool for any engineering/design/shop library!

2-0 out of 5 stars Interesting to read, well "look at", but poor...
This book is interesting, but IMHO, it has too many similar mechanical ideas/pictures and the picure quality is poor. I understand those picture/diagrams are very old, and the printing itself is not the problem, but still, they could resize the diagram little bigger.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what you would expect and worth it!
Perfect for the basement tinkerer. This book may not be as comprehensive in its descriptions as "Ingenious Mechanisms for Designers and Inventors," but it is only 1/20th the price.
The illustrations are simple and easy to understand. Often they show the isolated mechanism or mechanical movement independent of any other components. This is great because sometimes all the extra gobbledygook of a technical schmatic can make understanding things a real chore.
If you're an engineer looking for mathmatical equations and formulas, this book is not going to help. The text is made up of very simple generalizations, such as, "changes rotational motion into reciprocating motion."
Great as brain excercise, great bathroom reader, and economically priced to boot! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally Good Information
As an owner of the second and third editions, I found the second edition's physical qualities (paper, printing quality, etc.) to be better than the third edition's. Mr. Messina is mistaken when he indicates that my previous review was based on the second edition. I had ordered (through Amazon) the book on a waiting list and got it shortly after it was published. It is sitting next to me as I type. The second edition is in my office.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pump Handbook
Handbook is a term which implies comprehensive coverage of a given subject, so often a term which is misapplied. Not so in this case however, this book is without a doubt one of the best sources of information on pumps and related system components currently in print. For anyone requiring a comprehensive pump resource, this is it. I would definitely recommend this one for the engineering library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Description corrections
I am one of the four editors of this handbook. Please note the correct number of pages is 1765. The 2nd edition has the 1280 pages presently described. After the name Charles Heald add that he is an editor also. The 2nd and 3rd reviewers are referring to the 2nd edition of the handbook as they are dated before the 3rd edition was printed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Third Edition Builds on Success of First and Second
As an owner of the second edition, I looked forward to the revised update. The quality of the information is high. However, I was disappointed in the quality of the publication. Some of the graphs and charts seemed "muddy" with hard to read notations. Also, the binding and paper quality seemed to have slipped a little. This seems to be a trend. I own a number of texts from the 1950's. Their binding and paper quality is much better than that used today.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for any pump tradesman.
As owner of a mechanical contracting business for over 20 years, the Pump Handbook has been a reference of importance for many areas of hydraulic inquiry. Our specialty is the design build of water and wastewater treatment facility upgrades. The Pump Handbook is well written for not only engineers but also mechanics and maintenance personnel. Much of the information contained in this manual may be difficult for the inexperienced to grasp but the explanations are straight-forward and the information practical. I would recommend this volume for any person who needs to research pump, piping, hydraulic, and other related topics. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Brushless PM Motor Design
This is the only book on the subject that I have found that provides understandable explanations and useable equations. If you need to buy just one book on how to design brushless PM motors, then this is the one. It stands head and shoulders above all the others I've tried to use.

4-0 out of 5 stars brushless dc motor design
I am doing my Msc in Electrical Engineerin. My Msc theses is on "Design of a Brushless permanent magnet Dc motor".

I found the concerned book on your Web site.Therefore I would like to see the contents and order the book

4-0 out of 5 stars excellent text for pulse width modulation
This book provided an excellent review for pulse width modulation in switching power supply applications.

4-0 out of 5 stars Essential book for the beginning brushless motor designer.
If you are trying to design a DC brushless motor from near scratch, this is the book. While the introductory magnetic theory is just ok, the later chapters on radial and axial flux design are fantastic. It is definitely the right book for beginning motor designers, and a good start for designers interested in creating magnetic circuit models. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I think its a good book !
I had engineering science program years ago , but not much electrial circuits- just the basics. I bought this book for self-study. I read through the first eight chapters and worked a lot of the problems without much problem. I then read the chapters on the smaller electric motors and some about controls. Its not a begineers self-study book. If you have the background you can learn from this book;however, I had to read some of the material over several times to understand it. I still didn't feel like I had a good understanding about the basics of electric motors. Like how to wire them up, how to read the nameplate and so forth. This book is for the classroom and lab. It has a lot of information. My local university uses it in their technology program for three different courses I think.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Complete
I am delighted to have found this text. I find it the most comprehensive, complete and up-to-date text on electrical machinery, power distribution and transmission, etc., that I've seen. It does an esppecially outstanding job of presenting harmonics and harmonic effects on modern power systems. Kudos to the author!

3-0 out of 5 stars NO INDEPENDANT STUDY'S HERE
This book has considerable information for advanced studies, but is lacking more down to earth presentation. It needs more simplified terminology.This is not a book for a first year colledge student.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent blend of practical and theoretical.
This text is well organized and presents a wide range of topics in sufficient detail for many engineers and managers. Pictures and diagrams of equipment are abundant, as are electrical equations, waveforms, and phasor diagrams. Historical perspectives and advantages/disadvantages are included. It is surprising for one text to contain such breadth and depth, including transformers, motors, generators, controls, power electronics, utility systems, and harmonics. It was one of two books used in preparation for, and during, the PE exam; it continues to be a learning tool and reference. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent-
Good overall technical writting,
lots of fully worked mathematical
examples. Only book like it available
in print today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, authoritative text on the subject
Well written, using language easily understood by the average technical reader with an interest in the field ( unlike many engineering tomes in my experience ). Also unlike many texts, proofreading and editing are skilled and thorough. Shapiro ackowledges in the preface to the first edition the roles of his co-author sons as "militant proponents of the clearly expressed thought". The success of that effort is obvious.

A very balanced presentation with generous references to actual experience, practical examples, some theory, and lots of photos and illustrations. The authors' subtle humor makes the normally dry genre very readable.

I was disappointed learning it is currently out of print and am hopeful of a future reprinting so I won't have to keep borrowing my boss' copy !

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book around for a details on cranes& planning lifts

Book Description

The third edition of The Mechanical Design Process combines a practical overview of the design process with case material and real-life engineering insights. Ullman's work as an innovative designer comes through consistently, and has made this book a favorite with readers.

This book conveys the "flavor" of design, addressing both traditional engineering topics as well as real-world issues like creative thinking, synthesis of ideas, visualization, teamwork, sense of customer needs and product success factors, and the financial aspects of design alternatives, in a practical and motivating manner. Its ongoing use of a bicycle design case brings the design stages and concepts to life, and shows the actual steps taken to generate design ideas and bring them to fruition. Approaches to concept generation, including TRIZ and axiomatic design, are given strong coverage.

This text is appropriate primarily for the Senior Design course taken by mechanical engineering students, though it can also be used in design courses offered earlier in the curriculum. Working engineers also find it to be a readable, practical overview of the modern design process. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Handbook Of Pratical Gear Design
Anyone who engineers or specifies gears or gear drives would benefit from this book. Information on the design and function of gears is found in this well thought out text book. This book (written 1983) is greatly expanded and updated from the original (1954) version that I read in 1973. At this time, Handbook of Practical Gear Design is not quite the state of the art in gear engineering it is an excellent resource. All types of gearing are discussed. Read all the articles completely because the last part of the articles usually has newer information. (for example: the article on Hunting Teeth on page 3.8.) This is one of the great books in gear engineering and I consider this book a basic source in gaining the knowledge of great gear design. ... Read more
