This book provides methods to train process operators to solve challenging problems. The book is split into two parts. The first part consists of two parts; first developing a daily monitoring system and second providing a structured 5 step problem solving approach that combines cause and effect problem solving thinking with the formulation of theoretically correct hypotheses. The 5 step approach emphasizes the classical problem solving approach (defining the sequence of events) with the addition of the steps of formulating a theoretically correct working hypothesis, providing a means to test the hypothesis, and providing a foolproof means to eliminate the problem. The initial part of the book focuses on defining the problem that must be solved and obtaining the location, time and quantity based specifications of the problem. This part of the book also presents techniques to find and define problems at an early point before they progress to the critical level. The second part of the book deals with the utilization of fundamental chemical engineering skills to develop a technically correct working hypothesis that is the key to successful problem solving. The primary emphasis is on simple pragmatic calculation techniques that are theoretically correct. It is believed that any operator can perform these calculations if he is provided the correct prototype. Throughout the book, the theory behind each pragmatic calculation technique is explained in understandable terms prior to presenting the author's approach. These techniques have been developed by the author in 50+ years of industrial experience. The book includes many sample problems and examples of real world problem solving. Using these techniques, theoretically correct working hypotheses can be developed in an expedient fashion.

Learn all the basics about pumps in one place. Clearly written by an ace consultant, this manual for operators and specialists in the petroleum industry gives readers a concise overview of the mechanics of various pumps and reviews the specifications to be considered before a pump is purchased and installed. The straight-forward text explains pump hydraulics without need of involved mathematics and provides expert advice on installing centrifugal pumps in process plants. The book also emphasizes the mechanical aspects of pumps as it delves into misunderstandings and oversights on bearings, seals, impeller trimming, lubricant application, lubricant types, and much more.

Ergonomics Problems in Process Operations documents the proceedings of a symposium organized by the Institution of Chemical Engineers in association with the Ergonomics Society, held at the University of Aston in Birmingham, on 11-13 July 1984. The objectives of the symposium are: to enable engineers from process, power, and offshore industries to exchange information and experience with ergonomics specialists; to discuss ergonomics problems in process operations and methods of recognizing and controlling these problems; and to explore effective ways of applying ergonomics research to solving process operations problems. The symposium is intended to appeal to operations and maintenance managers, equipment designers and project engineers, designers and managers of pilot scale R & D plants, and ergonomists. The presentations in this volume are organized into three parts. Part 1 contains papers on the role of the human operator. Also included are contributions during workshops on the effects of monotony and reduced activity in automated plant monitoring and human reliability assessment techniques. Part 2 contains papers on interface design and contributions during workshops on expert systems applications and ergonomics implications of computer-based display and control systems. Part 3 deals with studies on job design, organization, and training. Contains more than 200 illustrative ex

Occupational Ergonomics: Design and Management of Work Systems comprises chapters carefully selected from CRC's bestselling Occupational Ergonomics Handbook, logically organized for optimum convenience and thoughtfully priced to fit every budget. This book presents 34 chapters addressing selected issues in the area of occupational macroergonomics, with an emphasis on design and management of industrial work systems. Part I focuses on organizational design. Part II is concerned with environmental design, including protection against noise and vibration, thermal stress, and usability of various work/shift plans. Part III discusses applications of ergonomics, principles of work design in the office environment, and manufacturing and service industries.

Composite decisions are decisions consisting of interconnected parts (subdecisions) and they correspond to a composite (composable, modular, decomposable) system. The material will be of interest to scientists (e.g., mathematicians, computer scientists, economists, social engineers,etc.). The book can be used as a text for courses (for example: systems engineering, system design, life cycle engineering, engineering design, combinatorial synthesis) at the level of undergraduate (a compressed version), graduate/PhD levels and for continuing education.

What do mothball-induced dizziness, an oddly shaped placebo, a unique use for vinegar, a paper clip, and fish that lived have in common? These are situations that consultant Charles Scott has faced in his thirty-three years of providing occupational safety and health guidance to a broad range of businesses and institutions. The author relates these unique and sometimes humorous experiences to give the reader an appreciation for the ingenuity and hard work of both workers and all levels of management involved in small business, American style. Also included are insights into struggles required to obtain his advanced degree. He lifts the curtain just a bit to reveal behind-the-scenes barriers that many graduate students encounter. He also talks about the physical maladies that have affected him as a consequence of the projects on which he worked. Most of the incidents he relates reveal how conscientious his client contacts were in their dealings. However, a few instances of ineptitude, dishonesty, and poor management are given that should reassure the reader that Mr. Scott did have to interface with all types of personalities. The reader will also develop an appreciation of how challenging it can be for a consultant to avoid the "feast or famine" trap.
