## Iterative Methods for Queuing and Manufacturing SystemsIterative Methods for Queuing and Manufacturing Systems introduces the recent advances and developments in iterative methods for solving Markovian queuing and manufacturing problems.Key highlights include: - an introduction to simulation and simulation software packages; - Markovian models with applications in inventory control and supply chains; future research directions. With numerous exercises and fully-worked examples, this book will be essential reading for anyone interested in the formulation and computation of queuing and manufacturing systems but it will be of particular interest to students, practitioners and researchers in Applied Mathematics, Scientific Computing and Operational Research. |
