The belief that workers want to do a good job permeates these points as does the need to take power out of the boardroom and bring decision making to the factory floor. Factory workers are taught statistics so that they can keep control charts on their progress toward improved quality. Everyone...
The systems subsequently to be considered shall be divided according to the properties which they satisfy. Such a division leads to the branch of mathematics known as Abstract Algebra. Our object is to study a logical development of algebraic systems beginning with those with relatively little algebraic...
