Overview

Here are over 100 true case studies from around the world that needed solutions. These cases are taken from the vast world of industry and commercial enterprise. A few are from unusual occurrences in the home and university setting, including some jokes and tricks that baffled many. But the focus is on industry where there can be dire consequences if a factory shuts down a line. The engine that powers the world is industry and it must keep running smoothly or the civilized world grinds to a stop. Our heroes are mostly unsung since they are the engineers, technicians and ordinary workers who jump in when things go amiss as they so often do. I hope you will enjoy these case histories. You need not be an engineer or scientist to understand the problem and to appreciate the solution. There is also a Problem Solving Guide at the end that should be useful to everyone.

this is a great book about anecdotal short stories of science and technology slips and their solutions and outcomes. if you are in the science field, engineering or a technologist this should be a required read. shows you you need to be open to any outcome.

I tend to flip to the end of books. At the end of this book is a terrific troubleshooting guide illustrated by the numerous perplexing and sometimes amusing examples (I learned that I may be able to eat pink snow but not yellow!). This book is great value for anyone in an industrial or scientific establishment with real technical problems to solve.
