More than 4 weeks availability


For undergraduate courses in facilities planning and material handling. Based on ten years' teaching experience, this text takes a practical, teachable approach to facilities planning and design. A class design project centered on a factory incorporates the theoretical aspects of facilities planning and design. Motivating and illustrating mathematical models wherever possible, the text explores facilities planning, capstone design, and even simulation modelling.
