More About This Textbook


Responding to the demand by researchers and practitioners for a comprehensive reference, Handbook of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers full and easy access to a wide range of industrial and systems engineering tools and techniques in a concise format. Providing state of the art coverage from more than 40 contributing authors, many of whom are "rising stars" in this area, this volume emphasizes systems engineering aspects and expands beyond the topics found in the existing references in this field.

The handbook is a one-stop source for industrial and systems engineering. It introduces new technologies, offers a systems integration approach, and provides coverage of information engineering. Part I delivers a general introduction featuring references to the origin of industrial engineering and its ties to the Industrial Revolution. Parts II and III cover the fundamentals of industrial and systems engineering. Part IV contains chapters on manufacturing and production systems, while part V addresses new technologies. The book concludes with general applications of both industrial and systems engineering.
