Operations and Production Systems with Multiple Objectives
The first comprehensive book to uniquely combine the threefields of systems engineering, operations/production systems, andmultiple criteria decision making/optimization
Systems engineering is the art and science of designing,engineering, and building complex systems—combining art,science, management, and engineering disciplines. Operations andProduction Systems with Multiple Objectives covers allclassical topics of operations and production systems as well asnew topics not seen in any similiar textbooks before: small-scaledesign of cellular systems, large-scale design of complex systems,clustering, productivity and efficiency measurements, and energysystems.
Filled with completely new perspectives, paradigms, and robustmethods of solving classic and modern problems, the book includesnumerous examples and sample spreadsheets for solving each problem,a solutions manual, and a book companion site complete with workedexamples and supplemental articles.
Operations and Production Systems with MultipleObjectives will teach readers:
How operations and production systems are designed andplanned
How operations and production systems are engineered andoptimized
How to formulate and solve manufacturing systems problems
How to model and solve interdisciplinary and systemsengineering problems
How to solve decision problems with multiple and conflictingobjectives
This book is ideal for senior undergraduate, MS, and PhDgraduate students in all fields of engineering, business, andmanagement as well as practitioners and researchers in systemsengineering, operations, production, and manufacturing.
