The author Sudhir Gandhi has tried to give a glimpse of the fabrication industry for pressure vessels based on his vast experience of about 50 years in the industry. He wishes the Mechanical Engineering fraternity to realize that the Fabrication industry like many other manufacturing industries has become a combination of various technical and commercial activities and managing the same requires special skills, particularly so in MSME industries for the limited sources of resources. He hopes this book shall help the Mechanical Engineers in getting an idea of all these activities who select this industry for a career. It serves some purpose to make new engineering students as entrants in the industry realize what kind of combination of complex activities are required to fabricate one piece of equipment. He hopes the book shall generate enough interest in the trainee engineers for looking at a bright career possibility and learning of different engineering activities. It must be remembered however that the small booklet of this nature cannot serve as GITA for the fabrication industry! Even the masterpiece ASME codes for pressure vessels, acceptable as universal standards, are dealing only with technical aspects and do not deal with managerial activities like planning, HR, finance, and management. It was necessary to make a limit to the scope of the booklet to ensure interest in the new engineers so that they are not scared away with many details of technical requirements, which are otherwise available elsewhere. The reader is advised to refer to various other specialized literature relevant to the activity of interest for detailed information. The author salutes ASME codes which have helped him tremendously in enhancing his fabrication knowledge throughout his career. The author, as a gratitude to the fraternity, attempts to present this small booklet with technical as well as managerial subjects which he has experienced during his career.
