Synopsis

Stochastic Models of Manufacturing Systems by J.A. Buzacott, J. George (University of California, USA) Shanthikumar

A comprehensive exploration of stochastic models of a wide range of different types of manufacturing systems - flow lines, job shops, transfer lines, flexible manufacturing systems, flexible assembly systems and cellular systems. Stochastic Models of Manufacturing Systems outlines the major issues that have to be addressed in the design and operation of each type of system, and a comprehensive framework for modelling the interaction between material and information flow in manufacturing. It also features new results on topics such as repair and rework facilities, the division of the transfer line into stages, flexible assembly systems, degree of specialization (or scope) of manufacturing cells, and offers new treatment of classic issues and new models.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.
