Introduction to industrial and systems engineering
Prentice-Hall, 1978 - Technology & Engineering - 416 pages
Providing a broad introduction to industrial and systems engineering, this book defines industrial and systems engineering, describes it place in the business world, and offers a wide picture of the functional areas with some solution techniques. Divided into three parts, the reference explains the role industrial and systems engineering play in an organization and how to manage and control the function ... covers elementary systems theory and feedback ... presents a typical problem for each of the major methodologies of industrial and systems engineering and provides the tools and techniques for effectively solving it ... discusses computerization of these techniques ... emphasizes the relationship of industrial engineering to such areas as operations research and ergonomics ... explores integrated systems design, showing how the I.E. must bring together all the detailed pieces into an integrated system ... adds coverage of simulation ... and updates data where applicable. Suitable for industrial and systems engineers.
