Unique in its focus on design and analysis methodologies for all areas of material flow management and system resource usage. Features research techniques that demonstrate the difference between opinions and findings, leading-edge approach to facility layout and a comprehensive queueing network. Progressive examples illustrate that there is more than one model for a system and case studies show integration of multiple techniques for realistic model building and problem solving.
