9780387221984: Planning and Scheduling in Manufacturing and Services (Springer Series in Operations Research and Financial Engineering)

This book focuses on planning and scheduling applications. Planning and scheduling are forms of decision-making that play an important role in most manufacturing and services industries. The planning and scheduling functions in a company typically use analytical techniques and heuristic methods to allocate its limited resources to the activities that have to be done.

The application areas considered in this book are divided into manufacturing applications and services applications. The book covers five areas in manufacturing: project scheduling, job shop scheduling, scheduling of flexible assembly systems, economic lot scheduling, and planning and scheduling in supply chains. It covers four areas in services: reservations and timetabling, tournament scheduling, planning and scheduling in transportation, and workforce scheduling. At the end of each chapter, a case study or a system implementation is described in detail. Numerous examples and exercises throughout the book illustrate the material presented. The fundamentals concerning the methodologies used in the application chapters are covered in the appendices.

The book comes with a CD-ROM that contains various sets of powerpoint slides. The CD also contains several planning and scheduling systems that have been developed in academia as well as generic optimization software that has been developed in industry.

This book is suitable for more advanced students in industrial engineering and operations research as well as graduate students in business.

Michael Pinedo is the Julius Schlesinger Professor of Operations Management in the Stern School of Business at New York University. His research interests lie in the theoretical and applied aspects of planning and scheduling. He has written numerous papers on the theory of deterministic and stochastic scheduling and has also consulted extensively in industry. He has been actively involved in the development of several large industrial planning and scheduling systems.

From the Back Cover:

This second edition book focuses on planning and scheduling applications with a new chapter on planning and scheduling in health care. Planning and scheduling are forms of decision-making that play an important role in most manufacturing and services industries. The planning and scheduling functions in a company typically use analytical techniques and heuristic methods to allocate its limited resources to the activities that have to be done.
The application areas considered in this book are divided into manufacturing applications and services applications. The book covers four areas in planning and scheduling: preliminary scheduling, planning and scheduling in manufacturing, planning and scheduling in services and systems development and implementation.It covers four areas in services: reservations and timetabling, tournament scheduling, planning and scheduling in transportation, planning and sheduling in healthcare and workforce scheduling. At the end of each chapter, a case study or a system implementation is described in detail. Numerous examples and exercises throughout the book illustrate the material presented.

Review:

From the reviews:

"The main emphasis of the book is on applications of various models that facilitate managerial decisions to be taken ... . The book can serve as a text for university students ... . The algorithms and techniques are explained by providing insight and illustration ... . A practitioner can use the book to identify a solution technique and the corresponding software tool to tackle a real-life problem ... . A lecturer will find a relevant practical example to illustrate a mathematical algorithm she teaches." (Vitaly A. Strusevich, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1078, 2006)

"The book is a completely new version of the book ‘Operations Scheduling with Applications in Manufacturing and Services’ by Pinedo and Chao published 1999. The text is divided into four parts and 15 chapters plus appendices and a list of references. ... The book may be useful for teachers and students to be used in graduate courses ... . I would buy the book to use it as course material ... ." (Alf Kimms, OR News, Issue 25, 2005)

"This book focuses on planning and scheduling applications in manufacturing and services, selecting the most important and representative models and methodologies from the enormous available literature in this field. ... this book from Pinedo is a very well balanced and organised selection of contents in the planning and scheduling area. ... The book may be very useful as an application guide for practitioners ... . It seems that the book may be intended for a senior level or master level course in engineering or business schools." (Marco Garetti, Production Planning & Control, Vol. 17 (10), 2006)

"Pinedo’s book is an effective combination of planning and scheduling theory with practical applications which help the reader to immediately link mathematical models to real-world problems and computer-based decision support systems. ... Overall, Planning and Scheduling in Manufacturing and Services is a valuable resource for students, academics and practitioners interested in planning and scheduling. ... This book is a very effective combination of theory and practice presented in a simple and clear style making it very enjoyable reading."
