INDUSTRIAL SCHEDULING is a short, handy guide to the broad spectrum of problems that students and practitioners in the manufacturing and service industries encounter in the workplace. The models used accurately represent situations encountered in the working world. This book makes solutions to scheduling problems easy to understand, adapt, and use. Instead of concentrating on highly complex mathematical techniques, Sule's book applies practical, heuristic approaches to planning and prioritizing resources for maximum efficiency and profitability. Concise coverage emphasizes useful cases and examples with real systems and allows the book to be used as a text or companion guide in a variety of curricula, including engineering, business, and quantitative methods programs.
