Production Systems Engineering, Hardback Book

Production Systems Engineering Hardback


Production Systems Engineering (PSE) is an emerging branch of Engineering intended to uncover fundamental principles of production systems and utilize them for analysis, continuous improvement, and design.

This volume is the first ever textbook devoted exclusively to PSE.

It is intended for senior undergraduate and first year graduate students interested in manufacturing.

The development is first principle-based rather than recipe-based.

The only prerequisite is elementary Probability Theory; however, all necessary probability facts are reviewed in an introductory chapter.

Using a system-theoretic approach, this textbook provides analytical solutions for the following problems: mathematical modeling of production systems, performance analysis, constrained improvability, bottleneck identification and elimination, lean buffer design, product quality, customer demand satisfaction, transient behavior, and system-theoretic properties.

Numerous case studies are presented. In addition, the so-called PSE Toolbox, which implements the algorithms developed, is described.

The volume includes numerous case studies and problems for homework assignment.
