Integrated Production, Control Systems: Management, Analysis, and Design
Focuses on the quantitative approaches necessary to computer-integrated manufacturing systems, and integrates major topics covering all phases of the production control cycle: production information processing and flow, production planning, forecasting, material requirements planning and monetary control, and scheduling. This new edition features a compendium set of 11 user-friendly computer programs for the IBM PC that enhance the teaching power of the text, allowing readers to solve real-life problems. Among programs included are growth forecasting, aggregate planning, material requirements planning, lot sizing and inventory control, and limited-resource scheduling. The chapters on scheduling give particularly thorough coverage on this difficult subject. Solutions are clearly presented, with many examples and exercises included in the text.
