Plans for establishing standards for men and machines and for developing a variable control budget are presented.
Statistics, the author says, could solve many control problems if only engineers would learn more about statistical principles.
Wage incentives, mistakenly publicized as a major part of industrial engineering, he asserts, are not a substitute for good management.
