    Drawing on contributions from various manufacturing fields, this book offers a comprehensive perspective by combining theoretical concepts with practical applications. It emphasizes future developments, the integration of technologies, and the crucial role of humans in manufacturing companies.

    Production Management, Manufacturing, and Process Control presents cutting-edge strategies and innovations for creating people-centered manufacturing processes. It explores how culture influences cognition and behavior, providing readers with valuable insights into relevant theories. The book also explores risk management, human performance improvement, and the current challenges in quality and information systems management. Sustainable global manufacturing practices that balance global market access with strong domestic engineering ecosystems are covered in detail and the book also addresses the optimization of production processes, including the use of machine learning for fault diagnosis.

    This is an ideal read and a valuable resource for students, graduates, teachers, researchers, and professionals in industrial management, business management, safety fields, manufacturing, risk management, and quality management.
