Publisher Comments:

The HANDBOOK OF PRODUCTION SCHEDULING concentrates on real-world production scheduling in factories and industrial settings. It includes industry case studies that use innovative techniques as well as academic research results that can be used to improve real-world production scheduling. Its purpose is to present scheduling principles, advanced tools, and examples of innovative scheduling systems to persons who could use this information to improve production scheduling in their own organization. The intended audience includes: production and plant managers, industrial engineers, operations research practitioners, advanced undergraduate/ graduate students and faculty studying and doing research in operations research and industrial engineering. The handbook provides a range and variety of real-world scheduling issues and analyses. Some of the areas covered are as follows: production scheduling processes as complex decision-making systems; the key concepts in master production scheduling and the techniques that are useful for finding better solutions; practical approaches to important supply chain scheduling problems; the use of mathematical programming to solve large production scheduling problems at one of the world's largest mines; guidelines for work-rest scheduling, personnel scheduling, job rotation scheduling, cross-training, as well as group and team work. The motivation for this book is the desire to bridge the gap between scheduling theory and practice. Therefore, these practical analyses are provided to help researchers and students solve scheduling problems by focusing on real world scheduling systems that will benefit from improvement.
