About this book

Introduction

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 text, the first devoted exclusively to PSE, is intended for senior and first year graduate students interested in manufacturing, as well as engineers involved in the operation, management, and design of production systems.

Drawing upon years of research and practical experience and using numerous examples and illustrations, Jingshan Li and Semyon Meerkov cover:

  • Methods for mathematical modeling of production systems
  • Techniques for designing continuous improvement projects with predictable results
  • Quantitative methods for selecting lean buffering
  • Rigorous techniques for identifying bottleneck machines and bottleneck buffers
  • Product quality
  • Methods for analysis of transient behavior of production lines
  • Techniques for measurement-based management of production systems
  • Numerous case studies which illustrate practical application of PSE techniques
  • The PSE Toolbox, which implements the algorithms developed in the text

A demo of the PSE Toolbox, which is useful as a learning tool for students and practicing engineers, can be found at www.ProductionSystemsEngineering.com
