Synopses & Reviews
Advances in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research compiles revised and extended articles written by prominent researchers participating in the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists (IMECS) 2007. This volume addresses manufacturing processes and methods, optimization, experimental engineering design, and reliability and quality control techniques, as well as other topics, including: Quality management systems Computer supported collaborative engineering Human factors and ergonomics Engineering management and leadership Transportation network design Stochastics modeling Queueing theory Advances in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research offers the latest information on the advances in industrial engineering and operations research and serves as an excellent reference work for researchers and graduate students working in this area.
This volume contains contributions from prominent researchers who participated in the 2007 IAENG International Conference on Operations Research. It presents theories and applications of modern industrial engineering and operations research to meet the needs of rapidly developing fields. The book reflects the tremendous advances in communication systems and electrical engineering and also serves as an excellent reference work for researchers and graduate students.
A large international conference on industrial engineering and operations research was held in Hong Kong, March 21 23, 2007, under the International Multi- Conference ofEngineers andComputerScientists(IMECS)2007. TheIMECS2007 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), a nonpro t international association for engineers and computer scientists. The IMECS conf- ences serve as platforms for the engineering community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. The conferences have also struck a balance between theory and application development. The conference committees consist of over 200 comm- teememberswhoaremainlyresearchcenterheads, facultydeans, departmentheads, professors, and research scientists from over 30 countries. The conferences are truly international meetings with a high level of participation from many countries. The response that we have received for the multi-conference is excellent. There have been more than 1100 manuscript submissions for the IMECS 2007. All submitted papers have gone through the peer review process, and the overall acceptance rate is 58. 46%. This volume contains revised and extended research articles on industrial engineering and operations research written by prominent researchers parti- pating in the multi-conference IMECS 2007. Topics covered include quality management systems, reliability and quality control, engineering experimental - sign, computer-supported collaborative engineering, human factors and ergonomics, computer-aided manufacturing, manufacturing processes and methods, engineering management and leadership, optimization, transportation network design, stochastic modeling, queuing theory, and industrial applications. The papers are representative in these subjects, sitting at the top end of the highest technologies in these elds."
