The NERS department congratulates C. Melvin Bost, Jr., on the publication of his new book. Bost (MS Nuclear Science ’71; Ph.D. Candidacy Certificate ’72; MBA Ross School of Business ’78) is the author of Project Management Lessons Learned: A Continuous Process Improvement Framework, published in June 2018 by CRC Press.

This book was highlighted in the University of Michigan Library list of books by U-M authors on World Book Day in April.

The book gives readers insight into applying performance-based feedback to processes and projects. It includes a Process Feedback Framework and case studies to illustrate lessons learned. Technology development and the sustainability implications of process design are also addressed.

Bost’s project management and process control career includes the management of major projects in many parts of the world for companies such as Atlantic Richfield (ARCO), UNOCAL, ConocoPhillips and Ford Motor Company.

In the acknowledgements, Bost cites professors Ziya Akcasu and James Duderstadt as playing a major role in his career interest in process and process control.
