Production Management Audiobook

Production Management

Author: Introbooks, Introbooks Team Narrator: Andrea Giordani, Introbooks Release Date: July 2019

The Production Management is the process of producing products through manufacture of raw materials into finished goods. The concept of production management was invented at the time of industrialisation. Production Management is a broad field and its usage is recognised in multiple areas which are concerned with providing services to the consumers. A Production Manager is required in fields like in Theatres as Stage Manager, Human Resources, Management, Accounting and Financial Management etc. A Production Manager's job working in an industry is to regulate the design of the product according to the wants of the customers. It also keeps a check on provision of raw materials, work force, money, materials and methods which are important for the manufacture of the desired product.  Proper Product Planning and Control is employed to avoid faults in the manufacturing process of the product to prevent the company from passing through the loss phase be it in the case of resources or the reputation that the company has developed over the years of work.  The Production Management department of the organisation is said to be the most important part of the organisation. Many other areas of work are affected if Production Management is not carried out properly and therefore is also referred to as the nervous system of an organisation.

The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Your Technology Choices Create the Future Audiobook

The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Your Technology Choices Create the Future

Author: Alex Salkever, Vivek Wadhwa Narrator: James Gillies Release Date: June 2019

Tech experts Vivek Wadhwa and Alex Salkever describe dozens of astonishing technological advances in this fascinating and thought-provoking book, which asks what kind of future lies ahead—Star Trek or Mad Max? Breakthroughs such as personalized genomics, drones, self-driving vehicles, and artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. On the other hand, the same technologies raise the specter of a frightening future—eugenics, a jobless economy, a complete loss of privacy, and ever-worsening economic inequality. Wadhwa says that we need to ask three questions about every emerging technology: Does it have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are the risks and the rewards? And does it promote autonomy or dependence? This edition is updated throughout and includes a new chapter on quantum computing, which promises vastly increased processing times—and vastly increased security risks. In the end, our future is up to us; our hands may not be on the wheel, but we will decide the driverless car's destination.

Do Dice Play God?: The Mathematics of Uncertainty Audiobook

Do Dice Play God?: The Mathematics of Uncertainty

Author: Ian Stewart Narrator: Kris Dyer Release Date: June 2019

Uncertainty is everywhere. It lurks in every consideration of the future - the weather, the economy, the sex of an unborn child - even quantities we think that we know such as populations or the transit of the planets contain the possibility of error. It's no wonder that, throughout that history, we have attempted to produce rigidly defined areas of uncertainty. However, over the centuries pioneering mathematicians and scientists began to reduce wild uncertainties to tame distributions of probability and statistical inferences. But, even as unknown unknowns became known unknowns, our pessimism made us believe that some problems were unsolvable and our intuition misled us. Worse, as we realized how omnipresent and varied uncertainty is, we encountered chaos, quantum mechanics, and the limitations of our predictive power. Bestselling author Professor Ian Stewart explores the history and mathematics of uncertainty. Touching on gambling, probability, statistics, financial and weather forecasts, censuses, medical studies, chaos, quantum physics, and climate, he makes one thing clear: a reasonable probability is the only certainty.

Mobile Technologies Crash Course Audiobook

Mobile Technologies Crash Course

Author: Introbooks Narrator: Introbooks Release Date: June 2019

Communication is the key to success. Communication has helped us establish our societies and build communities. It is the human connection which is why humans have constantly researched ways in which they can communicate with each other - not just face to face, but also when they are located in two different locations. Everything from birds flying from one place to another with messages to the invention of phones that facilitated long distance calling was a result of our need to communicate with people in far locations as effectively as possible. The mobile phone technology brought in a wave of changes to how telephony was perceived. With mobile phones, it became easier for people to talk to each other even when they were in different locations and that too without the limitations of the wired phones. While early mobile phones were very heavy making it difficult for people to carry the phone along with them wherever they went, mobile technologies helped in introducing advancements to these portable devices making it easier for people to carry it everywhere. Where early mobile phones could have weighed almost about 1kg, mobile phones today are as light as 130 grams. Other technologies like camera, Bluetooth and app development introduced such functionalities and features to mobile phones which may not have been expected when the device was first invented.

The Goliath: Why the West Doesn't Win Wars. And What We Need to Do About It.

Author: Sean Mcfate Narrator: Joe Knezevich Release Date: June 2019

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Goliath written by Sean McFate, read by Joe Knezevich. Everything you think you know about war is wrong. War is timeless. Some things change - weapons, tactics, leadership - but our desire to go into battle does not. We are in the midst of an age of conflict: global terrorism, Russia's resurgence and China's rise, international criminal empires, climate change and dwindling natural resources. The stakes are high, and we are dangerously unprepared. As a former paratrooper and military contractor, Sean McFate has been on the front lines of deep state conflicts. He has seen firsthand the horrors of battle and as a strategist, understands the complexity of the current military situation. The West is playing the same old war games, but the enemy has changed the rules. In this new age of war: -technology will not save us, -victory will belong to the cunning, not the strong, -plausible deniability is more potent than firepower -corporations, mercenaries, and rogue states have more power than nation states, and loyalty will sit with the highest bidder. This is The Art of War for the 21st century. Adapt and we can prevail. Fail, and size and strength won't protect us. Learn how to triumph in the coming age of conflict in ten new rules.

One Giant Leap: The Impossible Mission That Flew Us to the Moon Audiobook

One Giant Leap: The Impossible Mission That Flew Us to the Moon

Author: Charles Fishman Narrator: Fred Sanders Release Date: June 2019

The remarkable story of the trailblazers and the ordinary Americans on the front lines of the epic mission to reach the moon. President John F. Kennedy astonished the world on May 25, 1961, when he announced to Congress that the United States should land a man on the Moon by 1970. No group was more surprised than the scientists and engineers at NASA, who suddenly had less than a decade to invent space travel. When Kennedy announced that goal, no one knew how to navigate to the Moon. No one knew how to build a rocket big enough to reach the Moon, or how to build a computer small enough (and powerful enough) to fly a spaceship there. No one knew what the surface of the Moon was like, or what astronauts could eat as they flew there. On the day of Kennedy's historic speech, America had a total of fifteen minutes of spaceflight experience—with just five of those minutes outside the atmosphere. Russian dogs had more time in space than U.S. astronauts. Over the next decade, more than 400,000 scientists, engineers, and factory workers would send 24 astronauts to the Moon. Each hour of space flight would require one million hours of work back on Earth to get America to the Moon on July 20, 1969. Fifty years later, One Giant Leap is the sweeping, definitive behind-the-scenes account of the furious race to complete one of mankind's greatest achievements. It's a story filled with surprises—from the item the astronauts almost forgot to take with them (the American flag), to the extraordinary impact Apollo would have back on Earth, and on the way we live today. Charles Fishman introduces readers to the men and women who had to solve 10,000 problems before astronauts could reach the Moon. From the research labs of MIT, where the eccentric and legendary pioneer Charles Draper created the tools to fly the Apollo spaceships, to the factories where dozens of women sewed spacesuits, parachutes, and even computer hardware by hand, Fishman captures the exceptional feats of these ordinary Americans. One Giant Leap is the captivating story of men and women charged with changing the world as we knew it—their leaders, their triumphs, their near disasters, all of which led to arguably the greatest success story, and the greatest adventure story, of the twentieth century.

Don't Knock the Hustle: Young Creatives, Tech Ingenuity, and the Making of a New Innovation Economy Audiobook

Don't Knock the Hustle: Young Creatives, Tech Ingenuity, and the Making of a New Innovation Economy

Author: S. Craig Watkins Narrator: Jd Jackson Release Date: May 2019

Offers a timely analysis of the sheer ingenuity and persistence of young people who cobble together the resources they need to pursue the lives and careers they want. Young adults are coming of age at a time when work is temporary, underpaid, incommensurate with their education, or downright unsatisfying. Despite these challenges, media scholar S. Craig Watkins argues that this moment of precarity is rife with opportunities for innovation, and that young adults are leading the charge in turning that into an inventive and surprisingly sustainable future. As a result, society is expanding its understanding of who we think of as innovators and what qualifies as innovation, while wealth is spreading beyond traditional corridors of powerful tech companies, venture capitalism, and well-endowed universities. Drawing on over ten years of interviews and data, Watkins reveals the radical ways in which this community of ambitious young creatives is transforming businesses from the outside in. Diverse perspectives that are often ignored or silenced by major corporations are garnering public attention as women and people of color are redefining industries across the globe-all from their computer screens. We meet people like Prince Harvey, a New York-based hip-hop artist who recorded his album entirely on an Apple showroom laptop; screenwriter, producer, and actor Issa Rae, who first used YouTube and Kickstarter to develop the web series that became her hit HBO show Insecure; the Empowerment Plan, a nonprofit organization created by product design student Veronika Scott in Detroit; and start-up companies like Qeyno Group in San Francisco and Juegos Rancheros in Austin that help make tech more accessible to people of color. Forward-thinking and dynamic, Don't Knock the Hustle shows the diversity and complexity of a generation on the rise. UNIQUE APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING MILLENNIALS that looks beyond stereotypes about their relationships with tech and labor, based on two years of MacArthur Grant-funded research. DIVERSE AUDIENCE APPEAL that will reach millennials, educators, people seeking to hire millennials, and scholars of technology, media, and labor.

Moon Shot: The Inside Story of America's Apollo Moon Landings Audiobook

Moon Shot: The Inside Story of America's Apollo Moon Landings

Author: Alan Shepard, Deke Slayton Narrator: Christopher Grove Release Date: May 2019

On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, and the space race was born. Desperate to beat the Russians into space, NASA put together a crew of the nation's most daring test pilots: the seven men who were to lead America to the moon. The first into space was Alan Shepard; the last was Deke Slayton, whose irregular heartbeat kept him grounded until 1975. They spent the 1960s at the forefront of NASA's effort to conquer space, and Moon Shot is their inside account of what many call the twentieth century's greatest feat-landing humans on another world. Collaborating with NBC's veteran space reporter Jay Barbree, Shepard and Slayton narrate in gripping detail the story of America's space exploration from the time of Shepard's first flight until he and eleven others had walked on the moon.

Never Say Never: The Inside Story of the Motorcycle World Championships Audiobook

Never Say Never: The Inside Story of the Motorcycle World Championships

Author: Nick Harris Narrator: Nick Harris Release Date: May 2019

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Never Say Never, written and read by Nick Harris. 'The unmistakable voice of Moto GP' - Valentino Rossi As 'The Voice' of motorcycle racing for forty years, commentator Nick Harris became the biggest star not on two wheels in the paddock, and this is his mostly eye-witness, white-knuckle account of MotoGP's scorching seventy-year history. The story starts on the Isle of Man in 1949, when Geoff Duke, with his slicked-back hair and one-piece black leathers, became the nation's hero, defying the odds and winning the most dangerous race in the world on a British-built Norton. Just over a decade later at Mallory Park, another British champion and one of the greatest riders of all time Mike Hailwood screamed past a young Nick Harris on his 250cc Honda, and a life-long passion was born. Harris has been at the centre of the sport for decades, getting to know the riders as individuals, seeings feuds unfold, champions made, careers and sometimes lives ended. We'll see the biggest podium stars up close, from Barry Sheene and Kenny Roberts to Valentino Rossi, and we'll meet the mechanics behind them, the manufacturers who poured millions into the teams, and the organisers who, in the early days, ruthlessly compromised rider safety for profits. The drama has often been as tense off the track as on it. This is the book the motorcycling world has been waiting for.
