Synopsis:

Unrivaled coverage of a broad spectrum of industrial engineering concepts and applications

The Handbook of Industrial Engineering, Third Edition contains a vast array of timely and useful methodologies for achieving increased productivity, quality, and competitiveness and improving the quality of working life in manufacturing and service industries. This astoundingly comprehensive resource, now available in a three-volume set, also provides a cohesive structure to the discipline of industrial engineering with four major classifications: technology; performance improvement management; management, planning, and design control; and decision-making methods.

Completely updated and expanded to reflect nearly a decade of important developments in the field, this Third Edition features a wealth of new information on project management, supply-chain management and logistics, and systems related to service industries. Other important features of this essential reference include:

  • More than 1,000 helpful tables, graphs, figures, and formulas

  • Step-by-step descriptions of hundreds of problem-solving methodologies

  • Hundreds of clear, easy-to-follow application examples

  • Contributions from 176 accomplished international professionals with diverse training and affiliations

  • More than 4,000 citations for further reading

Volume 2 includes Section III: Performance Improvement Management and Section IV: Management, Planning, Design, and Control.

Volume 3 includes Section V: Methods for Decision Making and the comprehensive Author and Subject Index.

The Handbook of Industrial Engineering, Third Edition is an immensely useful one-stop resource for industrial engineers and technical support personnel in corporations of any size; continuous process and discrete part manufacturing industries; and all types of service industries, from healthcare to hospitality, and from retailing to finance.
