In engineering management, the important resources of manpower, materials and machines need special attention in order to achieve competitive advantage. In this case study approach, some relevant theory is provided, with an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses for application. The challenge for the reader is to improve the current situation, given the facts that have been identified. All the cases are open-ended, so the actual changes adopted with outcomes obtained are included, thus facilitating comparisons. The cases cover topics such as strategy formulation, management structure, cost estimation, production control and delivery, productivity, assembly line output, investment decisions, management information decisions, quality systems, health and safety aspects, TQM and continuous improvement, measuring and monitoring results.
