520    As the world becomes increasingly globalized, today's 
       companies expect to hire engineers who are effective in a 
       global business environment. Although you can find many 
       books covering globalization, most of them are aimed at 
       business, management, or social sciences. Developed with 
       engineers in mind, Global Engineering: Design, Decision 
       Making, and Communication covers the theory, models, and 
       decision making tools for incorporating globalization into
       engineering work. Written by a multidisciplinary team of 
       experts in industrial, mechanical, and manufacturing 
       engineering and organizational communications, this book 
       is a primer on how to improve designs, make better 
       decisions, and communicate more effectively in an 
       international working environment. The contents of the 
       book reflect the authors' multidisciplinary perspective 
       and their experience in working on projects around the 
       world. The book presents globalization as a phenomenon 
       affecting the way companies operate and their engineering 
       functions. It uses a case study format based on system 
       improvement projects and real industrial projects, ranging
       from design to supply chain and logistics problems. This 
       case study format allows for a natural presentation of 
       critical technical and non-technical concepts and their 
       complex interactions. The challenge that engineers face in
       a global environment results from the need to be aware of 
       interdependencies and to be able to determine which ones 
       are most important in each situation. Unique in its focus 
       on engineering, this book provides a framework for how to 
       better design, make decisions, and communicate in the new 
       era of global competition
