The express aim of this new edition is to address the management needs of engineers. The book will enable them to apply management techniques to achieve engineering solutions, and it demonstrates in detail how effective management is achieved in engineering organisations. It shows clearly that management is an engineering function, and not something apart from engineering that engineers should aspire to. All engineers are managers. An effective engineer is an efficient manager.
With additional chapters for this edition on Product Develpment, Operations management and Quality management, Management in Engineering covers a comprehensive range of management issues, from the company-wide context of organisational structure and activity, through the many management roles of the engineer.
