Manufacturing Scheduling Systems
Manufacturing Scheduling Systems offers a comprehensive and integrated perspective on the different aspects required to design and implement systems to efficiently and effectively support manufacturing scheduling decisions. The different elements constituting a scheduling system are presented, along with an analysis of the manufacturing context in which the scheduling system is to be developed. Examples and case studies from real implementations of scheduling systems are presented to support the theoretical insights.
Manufacturing Scheduling Systems provides an overview of scheduling ‘hot topics’, resulting in a text of high appeal to a broad readership from postgraduate students in industrial engineering/operations research and business management, to practitioners in the field.
Integrates different elements of a fragmented field in order to provide a new perspective on manufacturing schedulingExemplified by case studies from real implementations of scheduling systemsAccessible to a wide readership including students, researchers and professionals
