Forces of production : a social history of industrial automation by David F Noble( Book )

35 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the design and implementation of an important new production technology'computer-based automatic machine tools'David F. Noble challenges the idea that technology has a life of its own which proceeds along a singular path. Such as seen, technology has been both a convenient scapegoat and a universal panacea, serving to disarm critics, divert attention, depoliticize debate, and dismiss discussion of the fundamental antagonisms and inequalities that continue to beset America. This provocative study of the postwar automation of the American metal-working industry'the heart of a modern industrial economy'explains how dominant institutions like the great corporations, the universities, and the military, along with the ideology of modern engineering, actually shape the development of technology itself. Noble shows how the system of "numerical control," perfected at MIT and put into general industrial use, was chosen over competing systems for reasons other than the technical and economic superiority typically advanced by its promoters. Numerical control took shape at an MIT laboratory rather than in a manufacturing setting, and a market for the new technology was created, not by cost-minded professors, but instead by the U.S. Air Force. Meanwhile, completing methods, equally promising, were rejected because, among other reasons, they left control of production in the hands of the skilled workers, rather than in those of management or programmers. Thus, Noble demonstrates, engineering design in influenced by political, economic managerial, and sociological considerations, while the deployment of equipment'illustrated by a detailed case history of a large General Electric plant in Massachusetts'can become entangled with such matters as labor classification, shop organization, managerial responsibility, and patterns of authority. In its examination of technology as a human, social process, Forces of Production is a pathbreaking contribution to the understanding of this phenomenon in American society

America by design : science, technology, and the rise of corporate capitalism by David F Noble( Book )

42 editions published between 1977 and 2000 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed a "significant contribution" by The New York Times, David Noble's book America by Design describes the factors that have shaped the history of scientific technology in the United States. Since the beginning, technology and industry have been undeniably intertwined, and Noble demonstrates how corporate capitalism has not only become the driving force behind the development of technology in this country but also how scientific research'particularly within universities'has been dominated by the corporations who fund it, who go so far as to influence the education of the engineers that will one day create the technology to be used for capitalist gain. Noble reveals that technology, often thought to be an independent science, has always been a means to an end for the men pulling the strings of Corporate America'and it was these men that laid down the plans for the design of the modern nation today
