Industrial Engineering: Management, Tools, and Applications, Three Volume Set provides innovation applications and case studies that are drawn from multiple countries. The chapters in the books represent the best papers from the International Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIIE) Conference held in Istanbul in June 2013, sponsored by the IIE. The books showcase real-life case studies and applications that are set internationally, and allow students and practitioners to learn from best practices and also to study the growth of the discipline internationally. Global Logistics Management focuses on the evolution of logistics in the last two decades, and highlights recent developments from a worldwide perspective. The book details a wide range of application-oriented studies, from metropolitan bus routing problems to relief logistics, and introduces the state of the art on some classical applications. The book addresses typical logistic problems, most specifically the vehicle routing problem (VRP), followed by a series of analyses and discussions on various logistics problems plaguing airline and marine systems. It clearly illustrates logistic problems encountered in many different application areas, and provides you with the latest advances in classical applications. Industrial Engineering Applications in Emerging Countries explores recent industrial engineering (IE) applications on selected logistics problems in emerging countries. The book provides case studies and critical reviews of IE tools and techniques and discusses their use in sectors such as pharmaceutical manufacturing, maritime risk analysis, electricity markets, petroleum production, traffic congestion, and public transportation. With numerous examples and case studies, the book focuses on productivity measurement and improvement in process industries. It gives you the resources to devise solutions to overcome the challenges of moving goods through a system that in many cases still depend on human muscle and are susceptible to costly disruptions. Industrial Engineering Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings raises the bar and examines industrial engineering from a global perspective. Representing the best papers from the International Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIIE) conference held in Istanbul in June 2013, and developed by contributors from at least six different countries, this material lends their expertise on the international impact of industrial engineering applications and provides a thorough understanding of the subject. The book explores the globalization of this expanding discipline and helps you learn from universal best practices and observe the international growth of the discipline.
