Why too much work and too little time is hurting workers and companies—and how a proven workplace redesign can benefit employees and the bottom line Today's ways of working are not working—even for professionals in "good" jobs. Responding to global competition and pressure from financial markets, companies are asking employees to do more with less, even as new technologies normalize 24/7 job expectations. In Overload, Erin Kelly and Phyllis Moen document how this new intensification of work creates chronic stress, leading to burnout, attrition, and underperformance. "Flexible" work policies and corporate lip service about "work-life balance" don't come close to fixing the problem. But this unhealthy and unsustainable situation can be changed—and Overload shows how. Drawing on five years of research, including hundreds of interviews with employees and managers, Kelly and Moen tell the story of a major experiment that they helped design and implement at a Fortune 500 firm. The company adopted creative and practical work redesigns that gave workers more control over how and where they worked and encouraged managers to evaluate performance in new ways. The result? Employees' health, well-being, and ability to manage their personal and work lives improved, while the company benefited from higher job satisfaction and lower turnover. And, as Kelly and Moen show, such changes can—and should—be made on a wide scale. Complete with advice about ways that employees, managers, and corporate leaders can begin to question and fix one of today's most serious workplace problems, Overload is an inspiring account about how rethinking and redesigning work could transform our lives and companies.

The life prediction of aerospace structures subjected to service loading conditions can be complex and expensive. Fortunately, many flight-by- flight loadings can be analyzed as constant amplitude loading if the variability in crack growth rate is low. A test program was designed such that the stress intensity factor (Kmax) was held constant by uniformly reducing the load as the fatigue crack grew. With a constant Kmax, the crack growth rate remains constant throughout the life of the test. The baseline fatigue crack growth rate variability was established for the 7075-T6 center-cracked panels under a flight-by-flight load history. The effect of introducing overloads to the baseline flight history on the crack growth rate variability was reported. The results indicate that the delay region for the applied 114% overloads was predicted by Irwin's plastic zone model and was equal to 0.0382 inches which was equal to 225 flights. The delay behavior was consistent for the several overload conditions that were studied. When the occurrence of overload increased, the fatigue crack growth decreased. The standard error of estimate remained relatively constant, suggesting that a block approach to life prediction is feasible for flight-by-flight load history.
