Process planning detennines how a product is to be manufactured and is therefore a key element in the manufacturing process. It plays a major part in detennining the cost of components and affects all factory activities, company competitiveness, production planning, production efficiency and product quality. It is a crucial link between design and manufacturing. In spite of the importance of process planning in the manufacturing cycle, there is no fonnal methodology which can be used, or can help to train personnel for this job. Process planning activities are predominantly labor intensive, depending on the experience and the skill and intuition of the planner, and therefore often precludes a thorough analysis and optimization of the process plan which nearly always results in higher than necessary production costs, delays, errors and non-standardization of processes. Process planning is regarded as an art and not a science. Research in the field of process planning has indicated that all experts have their own expertise and one expert's experience might be different from that of another. It is rare, therefore, for two planners to produce the same process. Each process will produce the part as specified, although different processes will result in different processing times and costs. The question is, who is an expert? By definition an expert is one 'having or manifesting the knowledge, skill and experience needed for success in a particular field or endeavor', or 'one who has acquired special skill in or knowledge and mastery of something'.

Process planning determines how a product is to be manufactured and is therefore a key element in the manufacturing process. It plays a major part in determining the cost of components and affects all factory activities, company competitiveness, production planning, production efficiency and product quality. It is a crucial link between design and manufacturing. There are several levels of process planning activities. Early in product engineering and development, process planning is responsible for determining the general method of production. The selected general method of production affects the design constraints. In the last stages of design, the designer has to consider ease of manufacturing in order for it to be economic. The part design data is transferred from engineering to manufacturing and process planners develop the detailed work package for manufacturing a part. Dimensions and tolerances are determined for each stage of processing of the workpiece. Process planning determines the sequence of operations and utilization of machine tools. Cutting tools, fixtures, gauges and other accessory tooling are also specified. Feeds, speeds and other parameters of the metal cutting and forming processes are determined.

The global security environment mandates a flexible, adaptive approach to planning for the use of military forces in support of United States national security objectives. Today the global environment is characterized by regional instability, failed states, increased weapons proliferation, global terrorism, and unconventional threats to U.S. citizens, interests, and territories. This environment requires an ever greater cooperation between all the elements of national power if we are to be successful as a nation. To attain our national objectives it will require an efficient and effective use of the whole interagency to coordinate and manage the diplomatic, informational, military, and economic (DIME) instruments of national power. This effort is supported by and coordinated with that of our allies and various intergovernmental, nongovernmental, and regional security organizations. This publication purposely blends and attempts to explain the linkage between the CCDR and the rest of the interagency for planning and execution. We must, as a military, be aware of what the rest of the interagency brings to the table, while enabling the rest of the interagency to help achieve our national objectives as outlined by the President. We do this by starting with an education in an environment where we interact one on one with our Joint and interagency partners. Most of our Service and advanced level schools today have such an environment, and we need to ensure that environment grows, which will in turn enable us to grow wiser as planners.

This book takes a pedagogical approach that is participative and interactive, involving the case study method of learning. Chapters start with an Indian case study of a well known company. This is used as a capstone case for the chapter. The student will find this an easy learning experience as data and additional information for these enterprises is readily available. The selection of such cases makes classroom learning truly suited to the Indian business environment.The value driven approach to Operations Management is used in structuring the text into three modules. The first module discusses the infrastructure function of Operations Management. Infrastructure function is considered to be product, process, capacity and location. Module Two describes the structure of the operations function. This includes quality and other product transformation processes. Module Three focuses on the organization, people and processes i.e. the job, the work, and the workplace. In addition, most of the mathematical techniques have been separated into supplements attached to the relevant chapters. Software solutions for the techniques have been explained in the text. Every mathematical technique is exemplified with a number of solved problems. Unlike many Production and Operations Management texts, this book covers E-commerce, Industrial Safety, Maintenance, Environmental Management (Green Productivity) and new technological trends in the discipline. These sections should add to the significance of exploring how firms can gain competitive advantage and promote sustainable development at the same time. The last section of the book comprises of a selection of cases from The Indian Institute of Management at Ahmedabad. The cases encompass the entire spectrum of Indian Industry the private and the public sectors, professional and family managed business organizations, service and manufacturing industries, single industry and conglomerates. The cases relate to Operations Strategy, Supply Chain Management, Capacity Planning, New Products, Manufacturing Technologies, etc. The Case Studies are of world class. Prof. Tirupati, one of the authors of the case studies, according to Management Science, has penned one of the top 100 management articles in the 50 years.The book is comprehensive, lucid and easy to read and understand. It should be of great value both to students and faculty.

The Armed Forces of the Netherlands are currently in a reorganization process in order to improve the balance between tasks and capabilities. Specific materiel is being disposed of and organizations are downsized to achieve this balance. Part of this reorganization is the monopolization of operational level planning at the Defense Staff level to facilitate joint operations. The Directorate of Operations in the Defense Staff has been made responsible for this planning effort, and is now in charge of all planning for joint operations of the Dutch Armed Forces. The planning process used by the Directorate is NATO's Operational Planning Process. The Operational Theory Research Institute in Israel has developed a different approach for designing operations called Systemic Operational Design. The approach is based on a different theoretical background than the Operational Planning Process, and uses alternative ways to achieve its products. The Operational Planning Process acknowledges the fundamental importance of design for an operation, but does not specify how to construct this design. Therefore, a dedicated design process might offer opportunities for improvement of the Operational Planning Process. This monograph will suggest an improvement of the Operational Planning Process through the application of Systemic Operational Design.
