'... such an enterprise will be of great value to the community, to professionals as well as graduate and undergraduate students attempting to move into the field of modern catalysis and kinetics. I strongly recommend you publish this book based on the proposal.' - Prof. Dr. G. A. Samorjai, University of California
'Both authors are well respected specialists, with a very long record of original top-quality work and an international reputation. A book from these authors will be considered an authoritative piece of work, I definitely support this project and I am looking forward to use the book when published.' - Prof. Dr. D. E. Resasco, University of Oklahoma
'I wholly support the proposed project. The authors are very competent young colleagues and there is a real need for such a textbook' - Prof. Dr. G. Ertl, Fritz-Haber-Institut, Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin

This new edition offers vast improvements to examples and offers videos, sample data files for download, and online quizzes for all levels of Six Sigma certification. The content features further integration of Lean methods and examples, healthcare examples, risk management, and case studies of various deployment and analysis techniques.Includes two sample quizzes for Six Sigma certification, one for Green Belt candidates and one for Black Belt candidates Links to five videos that walk you through specific processes, such as Minitab functions, statistical process control, and how to read a Pareto chart Clearly defines the management responsibilities and actions necessary for successful deployment. Fully incorporates Lean, problem-solving, and statistical techniques within the Six Sigma methodology
This fully updated text provides the concepts, procedures, data, and analysis techniques needed to design and integrate machine elements into mechanical devices and systems. Focused on practical, safe, and efficient design, MACHINE ELEMENTS IN MECHANICAL DESIGN, 5/e emphasizes proven approaches and the use of readily available materials. Readers learn an integrated approach that considers the entire system while designing each element. The first six chapters guide students through the transition to design and expand on their understanding of designing for different loads. Next, the text thoroughly covers machine elements involved in power transmission equipment, from drives to rolling contact bearings. Finally, it covers many additional machine elements, including springs, electric motors, clutches, brakes, linear motion devices, and fasteers, plus issues associated with structural design, connections, and welding. Wherever practical, design equations, data, and procedures are specified. Problems offer realistic practice opportunities; throughout, the authors demonstrate the use of spreadsheets and included software to simplify complex procedures. Updated web links and references promote further exploration.
