The over 11,000 entries, written in easy-to-understand,practical language, are supplemented by hundreds of figures andtables that clearly demonstrate the principles and concepts behindthe definitions.

Whenunclear communication occurs in industry, the problems that resultcan be costly. Here's where the Dictionary of IndustrialTerms can help to eliminate frustration, cost, downtime, andequipment failure. Now, you, your staff, vendors, contractemployees, and consultants can quickly refer to more than 11,000terms and definitions in this handy new volume. Providing a commonground for more effective communication, this dictionary is anessential reference for anyone working in an industrial setting,and it is a useful reference for students as well.

From the Foreword:

"As I reviewed the contents of the dictionary, I was impressedby its practicality and applicability. As technology evolves, newterms and words become part of the industrial vernacular. There areother terms that are commonly used but may not be part of one'sparticular area of expertise. Having an understanding of thelanguage of industry is invaluable when communicating with decisionmakers, building a new career, or moving from one type ofmanufacturing environment to another."
—Fran Christopher, Director, Marketing and BusinessDevelopment ALS Tribology
