9781616407605: On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures

On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures is a treatise on labor economics and how to reduce the cost of workers by dividing tasks based on skill level. In his Preface, Babbage claimed that the work was a direct "consequence" of his supervising the creation of "the Calculating-Engine." To conduct research for the machine, he visited workshops and factories throughout England and Europe and noted their inefficiencies. As a result, he wrote the tract on labor and described what is known as the Babbage Principle-that by only assigning tasks designed for their skill level and pay grade, workers could be more efficient and costs cut. Though criticized by theorists like Karl Marx, the principle is often used today in management styles and workplaces. CHARLES BABBAGE (1791-1871) was a British engineer, inventor, mathematician, and philosopher. He is considered the "father of the computer" for pioneering the concept of a programmable computer and his invention of the first mechanical computer, which he called the "difference engine." Babbage made noteworthy contributions to cryptography, engineering, economics, and the modern postal system in England.

Book Description:

In this eminently readable historical account, Charles Babbage surveys manufacturing practices including printing and publishing, and discusses the political, moral and economic factors affecting them. His scientific analysis and promotion of mechanisation and efficient 'division of labour' still resonate strongly for modern industrial engineering and manufacturing industries.

About the Author:

Dr. Martin Campbell-Kelly is Lecturer in Computer Science, University of Warwick, Editor-in-Chief of the Charles Babbage Institute reprint series for the History of Computing, and editor of "Annals of the History of Computing".
