Solid hardcover. ; "This book outlines, step by step, one practical method of completing the time-study measurement and control of cost without rearranging the shop. It has eliminated many technicalities and method variations to concentrate on the preparation and use of standard data, as opposed to the costly process of individual operation timestudy. Not only does the method described permit a much wider field of application but the author shows wherein it logically extends beyond simple incentive to form the basis for many managerial controls." The Institute of Industrial Engineers' Society for Work Science has a top Award named for Phil Carroll, who built on and expanded the work of Taylor and Gilbreth. A nice first edition of this pioneering work, quite uncommon in dust jacket. ; 305 pages.
