Spare Parts Inventory Management: A Complete Guide to Sparesology™ by Philip Slater covers the whole part’s life cycle, from initial purchase to final disposal, and addresses issues throughout, including maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO). The author, Phillip Slater, was described in a recent podcast as “truly one of the leaders in the MRO information segment.”
Sparesology is a term coined by Slater to describe the discipline of optimizing the physical, financial, and human resource management processes of spare parts inventory management. Sparesology is much more than just inventory optimization. It involves an understanding of the complete “ecosystem,” within which the spare parts inventory is managed, and seeks to ensure that all of the factors influencing this management work together to achieve an organization’s goals.Learn More
When humans are “well,” they are in a state where body, mind, and spirit are holistically integrated, and are healthy, happy, and resilient. The same can be said for a business. Industry and Manufacturing Wellness explains how to use Reliability Engineering principles to design and create companies that are robust, reliable, self-improving, integrated business systems best suited for getting maximum success in today’s and tomorrow’s world.
Written by asset management expert Mike Sondalini, MBA, CP Eng., the creator and author of The Plant Wellness Way, this revolutionary work goes well beyond the plant to show a completely new way to engineer, design, and build business processes and work flow that deliver overall operational excellence to a company. The work introduces risk management, decision-making methods that prove the worth – or not – of a change before it’s initiated in the organization, thus protecting against making wrong choices. These universally applicable process improvement concepts makes readers take a system-wide approach that can be repeated infinitely to deliver the utmost operational success.Learn More
Unlike any other text of its kind, Materials Selection and Applications in Mechanical Engineering contains complete and in-depth coverage on materials of use, their principles, processing and handling details; along with illustrative examples and sample projects. It clearly depicts the needed topics and gives adequate coverage with ample examples so that ME students can appreciate the relevance of materials to their discipline.
Featuring the basic principles of materials selection for application in various engineering outcomes, the contents of this text follow those of the common first-level introductory course in materials science and engineering. Directed toward mechanical engineering, it introduces the materials commonly used in this branch, along with an exhaustive description of their properties that decide their functional characteristics and selection for use, typical problems encountered during application due to improper processing or handling of materials, non-destructive test procedures used in maintenance to detect and correct problems, and much more. What’s more, numerous examples and project-type analyses to select proper materials for application are provided. With the use of this unique text, teaching a relevant second-level course in materials to ME majors has never been easier!

As the only comprehensive text focusing on metal shaping processes, which are still the most widely used processes in the manufacture of products and structures, Metal Shaping Processes carefully presents the fundamentals of metal shaping processes with their relevant applications. The treatment of the subject matter is adequately descriptive for those unfamiliar with the various processes and yet is sufficiently analytical for an introductory academic course in manufacturing. The text, as well as the numerous formulas and illustrations in each chapter, clearly show that shaping processes, as a part of manufacturing engineering, are a complex and interdisciplinary subject. The topics are organized and presented in such a manner that they motivate and challenge students to present technically and economically viable solutions to a wide variety of questions and problems, including product design. It is the perfect textbook for students in mechanical, industrial, and manufacturing engineering programs at both the Associate Degree and Bachelor Degree programs, as well a valuable reference for manufacturing engineers (those who design, execute and maintain the equipment and tools); process engineers (those who plan and engineer the manufacturing steps, equipment, and tooling needed in production); manufacturing managers and supervisors; product design engineers; and maintenance and reliability managers and technicians.
- Each chapter begins with a brief highlighted outline of the topics to be described.
- Carefully presents the fundamentals of the particular metal-shaping process with its relevant applications within each chapter, so that the student and teacher can clearly assess the capabilities, limitation, and potentials of the process and its competitive aspects.
- Features sections on product design considerations, which present guidelines on design for manufacturing in many of the chapters.
- Offers practical, understandable explanations, even for complex processes.
- Includes text entries that are coded as in an outline, with these numerical designations carried over the 320 related illustrations for easy cross-referencing.
- Provides a dual (ISO and USA) unit system.
- Contains end-of-chapter Review Questions.
- Includes a chapter on sheet metalworking covering cutting processes; bending process; tubes and pipe bending; deep drawing processes; other sheet metal forming process (stretch forming, spinning, rubber forming, and superplatic forming and diffusion bonding).
- Provides a useful die classification with 15 illustrations and description; presses for sheet metalworking; and high energy-rate forming processes.
- A chapter on nontraditional manufacturing process discusses such important processes as mechanical energy processes (ultrasonic machining, water jet cutting); electrochemical machining processes (electrochemical machining, electrochemical grinding); thermal energy processes (electric discharge processes, laser beam machining, electron beam machining); and chemical processes (chemical milling).
