This part of the website introduces PSE to the industrial audience: plant, shop, and department managers; production supervisors; industrial, manufacturing, and quality engineers; production system designers; and supply chain specialists.

This material requires some knowledge of elementary algebra and statistics.

About the image at the top of this page: Practical applications of PSE are based on representing a production system as one of a small set of standard block-diagrams, with subsequent utilization of FFM Toolbox for analysis and continuous improvement. The left-hand side of the image above is a layout of an automotive ignition production system; the right-hand side is its representation as an assembly system. Detailed analysis and improvement of this and many other production systems can be found in PSE for IA textbook.
