"Real Lean" (Volume Three) gets into the details of how to sustain the Lean management system. The author takes a deep dive and offers many surprising and even jarring new insights. It shows that the Lean community has, for decades, severely misunderstood and underestimated the challenge of getting executives to adopt Lean management. This volume clearly explains why sustainability is so elusive in ways that have not been examined before, and provides answers to the question of why the "Respect for People" principle is so often missing. It will be a big help to executives preparing for the inevitable challenges associated with sustaining Lean management. Topics Covered Include: • The Long-Wave Current State • Shortcuts to Wealth • Problems, Conflicts, and Costs • Diving to the Bottom • Sharing is Fundamental • We Need Good Students • Sustaining the Lean Management Movement

Combustion instability has long been recognized as one of the most important but difficult problems in the development of propulsion systems. The U.S. and the former Soviet Union were simultaneously working during the Cold War to solve the instability problem. However, the scientific basis and engineering approach employed by the Soviets remained largely unknown to the Western world. This book—much of it formerly classified material--is a clear exposition of much of the theoretical work on combustion instabilities, performed in support of the Soviet liquid rocket program during its most vigorous period. While there are similarities between Western and Eastern works, there are many distinct differences. The author was one of the small group of Soviet theorists actively engaged in all of the Soviet liquid rocket programs. His development of the field is firmly grounded in fundamental ideas, and progresses to applications of a general sort.

This book sets out the challenges that will soon threaten modern society's dependence on low-cost transport in light of the problems posed by oil supply and climate change. It proposes organizational and technical innovations that could ensure effective, secure movement of people and goods in ways that minimize environmental impacts and make the best use of renewable sources of energy. The authors conclude that transport in the first half of the 21st century will feature at least two revolutions. One will involve the use of electric drives rather than internal combustion engines. The other will involve powering these drives directly from the electric grid rather than from on-board fuel. The authors also address revolutions in marine transport and aviation and analyze the politics and business of transport and how these will undergo profound change in the decades ahead.
