This book brings a fresh new approach to practical problem solving in engineering, covering the critical concepts and ideas that engineers must understand to solve engineering problems. Problem Solving for New Engineers: What Every Engineering Manager Wants You to Know provides strategy and tools needed for new engineers and scientists to become apprentice experimenters armed only with a problem to solve and knowledge of their subject matter.
When engineers graduate, they enter the work force with only one part of what's needed to effectively solve problems -- Problem solving requires not just subject matter expertise but an additional knowledge of strategy. With the combination of both knowledge of subject matter and knowledge of strategy, engineering problems can be attacked efficiently. This book develops strategy for minimizing, eliminating, and finally controlling unwanted variation such that all intentional variation is truly representative of the variables of interest.
Melisa Buie makes lasers and solves problems. In her role as Director of Operations, she works on both engineering and business problems. She joined Coherent and began lecturing at San Jose State University in 2007. She has also worked as a Research Scientist for Science Applications International Corporation working at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. where she made theoretical lasers. Melisa was a Member of the Technical Staff and Engineering Manager at Applied Materials, Inc. prior to joining Coherent.
Melisa's first book is Problem Solving for New Engineers: What Every Engineering Manager Wants You to Know which will be published in the summer of 2017. Melisa has co-authored of more than 40 publications and holds 6 patents. Melisa's degrees include a PhD in Nuclear Engineering/Plasma Physics from the University of Michigan and a MS in Physics from Auburn University. She has a Six Sigma Black Belt from the American Society for Quality. She will complete a certification program in innovation leadership at Stanford University Graduate School of Business in 2017. She lives in Palo Alto, CA.
