Computations and evaluation of hierarchical controls
We began this book with some discussion on the difficulty of obtaining an optimal solution for the stochastic manufacturing systems under consideration. In Chapters 3 and 4, we were generally able only to partially characterize optimal production policies. In the subsequent chapters, our aim has been to obtain asymptotic optimal hierarchical controls that are simpler to obtain.
