Frederick Taylor invented high-speed –cutting tools. He was graduated in Engineering with an evening study scheme.
Taylor is acknowledged as a father of scientific management. Probably no other person has had a great impact on the early development of management. He experience as
- An apprentice
- A common laborer
- A foreman
- A master mechanic
- A chief engineer
So Taylor came across ample opportunity to know first-hand the problem and attitudes of worker and to see the possibility for improving the quality management.
Principle of Scientific Management
- Replacing rules of them with science.
- Obtaining harmony rather than disorder in group action. Achieving cooperation of human being rather than chaotic individualism.
- Working for Maximizing output rather than restricting output.
- Developing all workers to the tallest extent possible for their own and their company’s highest prosperity.
