Intended Audience: plant designers, industrial engineers, and representatives of operations, procurement, human resources, and safety.



Students can use these practical tools to construct performance measurements processes that include graduated performance levels, feedback loops, and defensible documentation of results for “hard” and “soft” skills as well as any activity requiring a measurement system.
