  • Occupational Ergonomics
      Develop a healthier connection between worker and work with this practical introduction The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 34% of all workdays lost each year are the result of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). These disorders result from a mismatch between a worker, their working conditions, and the task they perform. Improperly designed tasks or equipment, insufficient downtime between shifts or tasks, or even simple sitting position can all produce WMSDs. The key insights into preventing these disorders are produced by ergonomics, the scientific study of human bodies as they relate to objects, systems, and environments, especially work environments. Occupational Ergonomics: A Practical Approach aims to supply an ergonomic toolkit for creating healthier relationships between workers' bodies and their work. Beginning with a set of foundational ergonomic principles, it then details multiple assessment techniques in ways easily adapted to specific workplace situations. This balance of theory and practice has made Occupational Ergonomics an essential reference concerning human beings and the work they do. Readers of the second edition will also find: * Up-to-date ergonomic research reflecting the latest clinical and workplace data. * Entirely new chapters on Work Physiology, Total Worker Health, Return on Investment, and more. * Major revisions to chapters on Elements of an Ergonomic Program, Workstation Design, Work-Related MSDs, How to Conduct an Assessments, and Office Ergonomics * Detailed and updated case studies applying ergonomic assessment techniques to common workplace scenarios. Occupational Ergonomics is a must for workplace safety managers, safety coordinators, ergonomics program coordinators, facilities managers, and any professionals concerned with the work environment, and worker health and safety.

  • Theory and Practice of Additive Manufacturing
      Discover the ins and outs of additive manufacturing in this student-friendly textbook Also known as 3D printing, additive manufacturing is a process by which layers of material are added to create three-dimensional objects guided by a digital model. It has revolutionized the design and manufacture of customized products, facilitating the rapid, flexible production of a huge range of goods. It promises to revolutionize manufacturing engineering, shorten industrial supply chains, and more. Theory and Practice of Additive Manufacturing provides the first introduction to this subject designed specifically for students. Balancing the underlying theories behind additive manufacturing with concrete applications, it guides readers through basic processes, essential tools and materials, and more. The result is essential for readers looking to bring additive manufacturing to bear on engineering or industry careers of almost any kind. Theory and Practice of Additive Manufacturing readers will also find: * Over 100 worked-out example problems * Detailed discussion of the emerging digital tools including mechanistic modeling, machine learning, and more * Commitment to pedagogy and reinforcement geared towards student learning outcomes Theory and Practice of Additive Manufacturing is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students and instructors in introductory additive manufacturing courses, as well as practicing engineers and researchers working in industries that use additive manufacturing technologies, including aerospace, automotive, and consumer goods.

  • Robotic Process Automation
      ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION Presenting the latest technologies and practices in this ever-changing field, this groundbreaking new volume covers the theoretical challenges and practical solutions for using robotics across a variety of industries, encompassing many disciplines, including mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, information technology, mechatronics, electronics, bioengineering, and command and software engineering. Robotics is the study of creating devices that can take the place of people and mimic their behaviors. Mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, information engineering, mechatronics, electronics, bioengineering, computer engineering, control engineering, software engineering, mathematics, and other subjects are all included in robotics. Robots can be employed in a variety of scenarios and for a variety of objectives, but many are now being used in hazardous areas (such as radioactive material inspection, bomb detection, and deactivation), manufacturing operations, or in conditions where humans are unable to live (e.g. in space, underwater, in high heat, and clean up and containment of hazardous materials and radiation). Walking, lifting, speaking, cognition, and any other human activity are all attempted by robots. Many of today's robots are influenced by nature, making bio-inspired robotics a growing area. Defusing explosives, seeking survivors in unstable ruins, and investigating mines and shipwrecks are just a few of the activities that robots are designed to undertake. This groundbreaking new volume presents a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software technique that makes it simple to create, deploy, and manage software robots that mimic human movements while dealing with digital systems and software. Software robots can interpret what's on a screen, type the correct keystrokes, traverse systems, locate and extract data, and do a wide variety of predetermined operations, much like people. Software robots can do it quicker and more reliably than humans, without having to stand up and stretch or take a coffee break. [464 Pages, Hardcover]
