"The advent of the computer in control of machine tools, and the revolution which it has produced in systems analysis and organization have greatly extended the frontiers of industrial engineering and have provided a number of exciting and powerful developments, all of which are purposefully examined in the book. "The Handbook well illustrates the increasingly valuable academic input to the interconnected fields of industrial engineering." —Lord Tombs of Brailes Chairman of Rolls-Royce PLC (from the Foreword) "This Second Edition of the Handbook of Industrial Engineering comes at an opportune time. It incorporates new knowledge and experience in a rapidly changing core discipline that is vital for a wide range of managers and engineers in both manufacturing and service industries and in educational institutions and government." —Ruben F. Mettler Retired Chairman and CEO TRW, Inc. (from the Foreword) "The Second Edition of the Handbook of Industrial Engineering will serve as an extremely powerful tool for industrial engineers and managers. "Described here are recently developed techniques and concepts such as simulation, CIM, flexible manufacturing systems...Moreover, the appropriate techniques required in each field are described and clearly illustrated with examples by specialists in those fields. Readers will be able to learn widely from the basic theory to practical application to leading-edge techniques." —Tadahiro Sekimoto President, NEC Corporation (from the Foreword) "It has been a privilege for the Institute of Industrial Engineers to participate with John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Dr. Gavriel Salvendy,and the nearly 200 professionals to help create this compendium of leading-edge throught on industrial engineering. There is no doubt that the Second Edition of the Handbook of Industrial Engineering will be an absolute requirement in the tool bag of tomorrow’s industrial engineer." —Gregory Balestrero Executive Director Institute of Industrial Engineers (from the Foreword) Of related interest... Edited by Gavriel Salvendy (0 471-88015-9) 1,904 pp. 12 Chapters with 104 Contributors "The publication of the Handbook of Human Factors is therefore particularly timely. Regardless of what phase of the economy a person is involved in, this handbook is a very useful tool. Every area of human factors from environmental conditions and motivation to the use of new communications systems, robotics, and business systems is well covered in the handbook by experts in every field." —E. M. Estes Retired President General Motors Corporation (from the Foreword)

Covers the entire spectrum of modern industrial engineering from a practical standpoint. The Second Edition has added 36 completely new chapters to provide a more cohesive structure to the discipline which it classifies under the following four areas: technology; human dimensions; planning, design and control of operations; quantitative methods for decision making.From the Inside Flap:
Published in cooperation with the Institute of Industrial Engineers, this extensively revised and updated Second Edition presents proven state-of-the-art approaches for increasing productivity and quality and lowering operating costs. Emphasizing the effective management of financial, physical, and human resources, these approaches include: Methods and techniques for the design and operation of work environments requiring interaction between humans and "intelligent" machines Guidance on facilities design and management of operations, computer-integrated business systems,and cost control Innovative ideas for bolstering office performance, streamlining the production and handling of information, and improving working conditions The Handbook draws upon the research and experience of 163 internationally recognized experts. Its 108 chapters feature concise descriptions of the practice or method, as well as reviews of their applications, advantages, and limitations. Coverage cites over 4,000 references and employs nearly 1,500 figures and tables to provide the most effective methods for increasing productivity and enhancing the quality of work in such vital areas as: Information technology and knowledge-based systems Office automation, networking,and communications Service technology and service quality; electronic packaging; assembly; concurrent engineering; and packaging for logistics Product planning and time compression management Computer simulation and modeling for simulation analysis The First Edition of this valuable work received the award for the Best Book in Professional and Scholarly Publishing by the Association of American Publishers. The Handbook of Industrial Engineering, Second Edition is a valuable source for continuous-process and discrete-part manufacturing organizations of any size, as well as service industries. It is an essential resource for production, plant,and operations managers, and all manufacturing and industrial engineers.
