THE ORGANIZATION OF THE FACTORY

ORGANIZATION has already been described in Chapter II as the process of so combining the work which individuals or groups have to perform with the faculties necessary for its execution that the duties, so formed, provide the best channels for the efficient, systematic, positive and co-ordinated application of the available effort. Mr. L.V. Estes has defined it again as “the arrangement of dependent parts or functions, so as to show their inter-relation in the structure and to provide the means whereby the efforts of a group of individuals will be directed rationally towards a common object.”1 Mr. C.E.Knoeppel has described it as “the proper adjustment of the relationship between human beings in an effort to accomplish certain definite ends.”1
