An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design is a guide to process plant design for both students and professional engineers. The book covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings produced by professional engineers as aids to design; subjects which are usually learned on the job rather than in education. You will learn how to produce smarter plant design through the use of computer tools, including Excel and AutoCAD, "What If Analysis", statistical tools, and Visual Basic for more complex problems. The book also includes a wealth of selection tables, covering the key aspects of professional plant design which engineering students and early-career engineers tend to find most challenging. Professor Moran draws on over 20 years' experience in process design to create an essential foundational book ideal for those who are new to process design, compliant with both professional practice and the IChemE degree accreditation guidelines. Explains how to deliver a process design that meets both business and safety criteria Covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings as aids to design Includes a comprehensive set of selection tables, covering those aspects of professional plant design which early-career designers find most challenging

It’s not just health professionals in Emergency Departments that need to communicate effectively under difficult conditions involving time pressure, high stress, and conflict. Executives, senior managers and leaders have this need too. Through simple, practical and effective tools validated by Emergency Department clinicians, this book provides health professionals with a team-based approach for being more effective communicators and influencers along the patient care journey. If this approach can work in the ED, we believe it can be successful in other sectors and settings too. Based on COIN for ED Professionals™, a peer-reviewed and published communication and influencing skills training program developed for Emergency Department health professionals, this book: •presents the RESPECT model, a 7 principled framework enabling health professionals to influence effectively and respectfully in difficult and high stress situations •introduces the approach of action learning, the secret to continuous improvement •provides a rich collection of real stories from clinicians, case-studies, exercises, activities and self-assessment tools targeting professionals seeking to significantly improve not only their own communication and influencing skills, but also those of their colleagues.
