Our economy and future way of life depend on how well American manufacturing managers adapt to the dynamic, globally competitive. After a brief introductory chapter, “Factory Physics” 3/e is divided into three parts: I The Lessons of History; II Factory Physics; and III Principles in Practice. Hopp presents the concepts of manufacturing processes and controls within a ” physics” or “laws of nature” analogy–a novel Factory Physics: Foundations of Manufacturing Management. Front Cover.

Our economy and future way of fadtory depend on how well American manufacturing managers adapt to the dynamic, globally competitive landscape and evolve their firms to keep pace.
A major challenge is how to structure the firms environment so that it attains the speed and low cost of high-volume flow lines while retaining the flexibility and customization potential of a low-volume job shop.
The books three parts are organized according to three categories of skills required by managers and engineers: Part I reviews traditional operations phyzics techniques and identifies the necessary components of the science of manufacturing.

Part II presents the core concepts of the book, beginning with the structure of the science of manufacturing and a discussion of the systems approach to problem solving. Physucs topics include behavioral tendencies of manufacturing plants, push and pull production systems, the human element in operations management, and the relationship between quality and operations.
Chapter conclusions include main points and observations framed as manufacturing laws. The authors compare and contrast common problems, including shop floor control, long-range aggregate planning, workforce planning and capacity management.
Factory Physics, Wallace J. Hopp, Mark L. Spearman, eBook –
Written for both engineering and management students, the authors demonstrate the effectiveness of a rule-based and data driven approach to operations planning and control.
They advance an organized framework from which to evaluate management practices and develop useful intuition about manufacturing systems.
