Adrian Bullock
R789 Discovery Miles 7 890 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The digital revolution has brought with it a wider range of options for creating and producing print on paper products than ever seen before. With the growing demand for skills and knowledge with which to exploit the potential of digital technology, comes the need for a comprehensive book that not only makes it possible for production staff, editors, and designers to understand how the technology affects the industry they work in, but also provides them with the skills and competencies they need to work in it smartly and effectively. This book is designed to satisfy this need.

Book Production falls into two parts:

  • The first part deals with the increasingly important role of production as project managers, a role which has not been adequately written about in any of the recent literature on publishing.
  • The second part deals with the processes and raw materials used in developing and manufacturing print on paper products. Case studies are used to illustrate why and how some processes or raw materials may or may not be appropriate for a particular job.

With expert opinions and case studies, and a consideration of the practices and issues involved, this offers a comprehensive overview of book production for anyone working, or training to work in or in conjunction with the books industry.

New JIT, New Management Technology Principle (Hardcover): Kakuro Amasaka New JIT, New Management Technology Principle (Hardcover)
Kakuro Amasaka
R1,442 Discovery Miles 14 420 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

New JIT, New Management Technology Principle contains the previously published, updated, and new works of renowned scientist, scholar, and consultant Kakuro Amasaka. This book details the Just-in-Time (JIT) quality management strategy, exploring the cutting edge of a new management technology principle that surpasses what traditional JIT has accomplished. The new JIT principle contains hardware and software systems, and next-generation technical principles for transforming management technology into management strategy. This comprehensive work covers traditional JIT, innovation and evolution, the full new JIT and its applications, along with case studies. It is clearly impossible to lead the next generation by merely maintaining the two Toyota management technology principles, Toyota Production System and Total Quality Management. To overcome this issue, it is essential to renovate not only TPS, which is the core principle of the production process, but also establish core principles for marketing, design and development, production, and other departments. This book reassesses the way management technology was carried out in the manufacturing industry and establishes new JIT. This next-generation management technology model is the JIT system for not only manufacturing, but also for customer relations, sales and marketing, product planning, research and development (R&D), product design, production engineering, logistics, procurement, and administration and management for enhancing business process innovation and introduction of new concepts and procedures. The book focuses on the theory and application of strategic management technology through the application of new JIT, then demonstrates its effectiveness in a case study based on an advanced car manufacturer. Using this new model, you can realize manufacturing that places top priority on customers with a good Quality, Cost, and Delivery (QCD) in a rapidly changing technical environment, and allows you to create uniform quality for the global market.

Blancpain's editors enlisted experts from both fields to chronicle the twin evolutions and milestones of underwater time keeping and exploration. The result is a comprehensive portrait of pioneers and inventors never before assembled in a single album. The book, with its unique compilation of materials, has been conceived to become an authoritative historical resource for both divers and diving watch aficionados. This new volume for the first time comprehensively charts the milestones in the 60 year history of Blancpain's Fifty Fathoms. From its birth in 1953, the Fifty Fathoms provided a formula so well conceived that it has defined the entire genre ever since. Innovation did not stop with the first watch and Blancpain has honored and enriched the legacy with numerous inventions and improvements that have continued to secure the pre-eminent position of the Fifty Fathoms in the world of diving watches. The book's chapters recount the stories of 24 of the most important adventurers who pioneered exploration of the world's oceans such as Hans Haas, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and Stan Waterman. This never before assembled resource of horology and diving also includes a time line charting these two histories as well as an encyclopedia of terms. Numbered and limited to 2750 copies.
