Build Your Own Electric Vehicle
Bob Brant
0830642315
September 1993
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
The advantages of electric vehicles (EVs) are well-known: nonpolluting operation, a renewable power source, safety, and low cost of operation. The disadvantages include limitations on speed, operating range, and convenience as well as the high cost of converting existing vehicles to electric operation; while acknowledging such other disadvantages as lack of effective heating, air conditioning, and power steering, EV advocate Brant says some of the best-known ones are myths. Speed, for instance, is related to body weight, and less weight means more speed. (Weight is, however, also a factor in safety: lighter weight often means less safety, especially in collisions, and Brant doesn't mention the collision factor.) Brant provides comprehensive instruction in converting a vehicle to electric power. It is not for the casual...


Toyota Production System: Beyond Large-Scale Production
Taiichi Ohno
0915299143
February 1988
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Just-in-Time (JIT) production methods are the rage, as non-Japanese companies attempt to mimic Oriental manufacturers (see Edward J. Hay, The Just in Time Breakthrough , LJ 4/15/88). These methods originated at the Toyota Co. after World War II, and Ohno is philosophical father of the techniques. This volume represents the English translation of his original commentaries, first published in Japan in 1978. More a philosophical commentary and history than an applications manual, it not only presents compelling examples of JIT implementation at Toyota, but also illustrates the mindset behind the system, especially the critical importance of teamwork and the premeditated effort to develop automation with a human touch. Recommended more for historians of JIT than practitioners. Gene R. Laczniak, Marquette Univ.,...

The attempt to express, much less understand, the nature of the relationships inherent in transportation and its myriad components is a challenge for transportation educators. Fortunately, the book you hold in your hands explains many of these interactions and complexities, as well as the design problems that go with them. Another challenge that transportation engineering poses, as a comparatively young discipline, is that professionals have to constantly deal with a plethora of new problems that seem to crop up faster than they can be tackled. In short, transportation is an exciting field. The purpose of this edition, like previous editions, is to cover the major areas of traffic engineering and transportation planning at an introductory level, and provide the student with a basic rationale and a set of...
