This new edition of a core undergraduate textbook for constructionmanagers reflects current best practice, topical industrypreoccupations and latest developments in courses and fundamentalsubjects for students. While the construction process still requires traditionalskills, changes over recent decades today demand improvedunderstanding of modern business, production and contractualpractices. The authors have responded accordingly and thebook has undergone a thorough re-write, eliminating some of theolder material and adding new processes now considered essential toachieving lean construction. Particular emphasis is given, forexample, to supply chains and networks, value and risk management,BIM, ICT, project arrangements, corporate social responsibility,training, health and welfare and environmental sustainability. Modern Construction Management presents construction as asocially responsible, innovative, carbon-reducing,manager-involved, people-orientated, crisis-free industry that isefficient and cost effective. The overall themes for the SeventhEdition are: Drivers for efficiency: lean construction underpinningproduction management and off-site production methods. Sustainability: reflecting the transition to a lowcarbon economy. Corporate Social Responsibility: embracing health &safety, modernistic contracts, effective procurement, andemployment issues. Building Information Management: directed towardsthe improvement of construction management systems. The comprehensive selection of worked examples, based on realand practical situations in construction management and methodswill help to consolidate learning. A companion website at ahref="http://www.wiley.com/go/MCM7"www.wiley.com/go/MCM7/a offersinvaluable support material for both tutors and students: Solutions to the self-learning exercises PowerPoint slides with discussion topics Journal and web references Structured to reflect site, business and corporateresponsibilities of managers in construction, the book continues toprovide strong coverage of the salient elements required fordeveloping and equipping the modern construction manager with thecompetencies and skills for both technical and business relatedareas.

This is a practical guide for those studying business and management-related subjects at undergraduate level. Written in an engaging and clear style, the book helps students prepare effectively for assignments, presentations, examinations and dissertations, encompassing both business studies and the real workings of business.
Maths and Statistics for Business is specifically written for non-mathematicians who need an introduction to elementary mathematical and statistical techniques for their business course. Through worked examples, highlighted key points and self-assessment questions, the book demonstrates how these techniques are applied in the business environment. Ideal for all business-related foundation, degree and diploma courses involving statistics and maths, such as business maths, statistics for business, introductory quantitative analysis and quantitative methods.
The recording and analysis of food data are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Consequently, the food scientist inindustry or at study faces the task of using and understandingstatistical methods. Statistics is often viewed as a difficultsubject and is often avoided because of its complexity and a lackof specific application to the requirements of food science. Thissituation is changing – there is now much material onmultivariate applications for the more advanced reader, but a caseexists for a univariate approach aimed at thenon-statistician. This second edition of Statistical Methods for Food Scienceprovides a source text on accessible statistical procedures for thefood scientist, and is aimed at professionals and students in foodlaboratories where analytical, instrumental and sensory data aregathered and require some form of summary and analysis beforeinterpretation. It is suitable for the food analyst, the sensoryscientist and the product developer, and others who work infood-related disciplines involving consumer survey investigationswill also find many sections of use. There is an emphasis on a‘hands-on’ approach, and worked examples using computersoftware packages and the minimum of mathematical formulae areincluded. The book is based on the experience and practice of ascientist engaged for many years in research and teaching ofanalytical and sensory food science at undergraduate andpost-graduate level. This revised and updated second edition is accompanied by a newcompanion website giving the reader access to the datasets andExcel spreadsheets featured in the book.

جلست جيدانكن في مقعدها وربطت الأحزمة، ثم قالت بجزم: "انطلق يا ديك... إلى القمر."+++أجابها الكمبيوتر: "أف! حسناً. افعل هذا، افعل ذاك، دائماً...". ضغطت جيدانكن على الزر الأحمر الكبير في لوحة التحكم أمامها. فدارت محركات المركبة وطغى هديرها على احتجاجات ديك.+++ما هو إلا وقت قصير حتى حطت المركبة على السطح القمر. وإذ ذاك، ذكرها ديك بأن ترتدي بزتها الفضائية قبل الخروج بسبب انعدام أي غلاف جوي. بدت البزة ضخمة، لكنها كانت مصممة جيداً ويسهل ارتداؤها. عبرت جيدانكن حجرة الضغط ثم نزلت الدرجات المعدنية وخرجت من المركبة إلى سطح القمر المغبر. وراحت تلهو بعض الوقت وتقفز صعوداً ونزولاً. وأعجبها أن تتمكن من الوثوب إلى مستوى أعلى مما تفعل على السطح الأرض. وفكرت أن الأمر "يشبه حتماً ما يفعله أبطال الوثب في الألعاب الأولمبية".
The main intended audience for this book is undergraduate students in pure and applied sciences, especially those in engineering. Chapters 2 to 4 cover the probability theory they generally need in their training. Although the treatment of the subject is surely su?cient for non-mathematicians, I intentionally avoided getting too much into detail. For instance, topics such as mixed type random variables and the Dirac delta function are only brie?y mentioned. Courses on probability theory are often considered di?cult. However, after having taught this subject for many years, I have come to the conclusion that one of the biggest problems that the students face when they try to learn probability theory, particularly nowadays, is their de?ciencies in basic di?erential and integral calculus. Integration by parts, for example, is often already forgotten by the students when they take a course on probability. For this reason, I have decided to write a chapter reviewing the basic elements of di?erential calculus. Even though this chapter might not be covered in class, the students can refer to it when needed. In this chapter, an e?ort was made to give the readers a good idea of the use in probability theory of the concepts they should already know. Chapter 2 presents the main results of what is known as elementary probability, including Bayes’ rule and elements of combinatorial analysis.
This book moves systematically through the topic of applied probability from an introductory chapter to such topics as random variables and vectors, stochastic processes, estimation, testing and regression. The topics are well chosen and the presentation is enriched by many examples from real life. Each chapter concludes with many original, solved and unsolved problems and hundreds of multiple choice questions, enabling those unfamiliar with the topics to master them. Additionally appealing are historical notes on the mathematicians mentioned throughout, and a useful bibliography. A distinguishing character of the book is its thorough and succinct handling of the varied topics.
