Cost management is the key to survival in a competitive global industry. In this 2nd edition, industry expert Robin Kent challenges old-fashioned principles of cost-cutting, and provides managers with a route map through all aspects of cost management in a plastics factory.
Historically, we have always seen reduced labour costs as the way forward. Now, in this highly readable text Dr. Kent encourages the reader to look at all parts of the production process, from part design to waste disposal. Equally applicable to moulders, extruders and all other processors, the book provides practical, hands-on advice, with tips for success, and more than 100 schematic diagrams.
