"Facilities Design, Fifth Edition" includes a balanced coverage of modeling as well as applications of layout, materials handling, and warehousing. It presents automated materials handling along with queuing, queuing networks, and basic simulation modeling. The new edition introduces new material that includes topics such as supply chain designing and management, aggregate planning, and transportation, logistics, and distribution. Dedicated to the proper design, layout, and location of facilities, this definitive textbook outlines the main design and operational problems that occur in manufacturing and service systems, explains the significance of facility design and planning problems, and describes how mathematical models can be used to help analyze and solve them. Combining theory with practice, this revised textbook presents state-of-the-art topics in materials handling, warehousing, and logistics along with real-world examples that emphasize the importance of modeling and analysis when determining a solution to complex facility design problems.
