This senior/graduate-level text is the classic text in its field and established itself as the authoritative source on the theory & practice of simulation over 15 years ago. It is used in most of the better schools of engineering and in some business programs as well.
The mission of the 13th edition of Management: Leading & Collaborating in a Competitive World, by Bateman, Snell, and Konopaske, is to inform, instruct, and inspire students to learn about management so they become thinkers and doers who succeed in today’s workforce. It emphasizes six essential performance dimensions: cost, quality, speed, innovation, service and sustainability. This results-oriented focus delivers value to the customer and a competitive advantage to managers and their employers. Its cutting edge topical coverage draws from a wide variety of subjects, sources, and personal experiences. Ongoing themes include real results, ethics, culture, leadership, and collaboration.
This book describes the latest research developments in modeling and simulation in industrial engineering. Topics such as decision and performance analysis and industrial control systems are described. Case studies in industry and services as well as engineering economy and cost estimation are also covered.
Today's architecting must handle systems of types unknown until very recently. New domains, including personal computers, intersatellite networks, health services, and joint service command and control are calling for new architectures-and for architects specializing in those domains. Since the original publication, of this bestselling text, these new and emerging fields have contributed architectural concepts and tools of their own to the relatively new formalism-and evolving profession-called Systems Architecting. The Art of Systems Architecting, Second Edition restates and extends into the future the classical architecting paradigm, incorporating the most broadly applicable of these contributions. It remains the most innovative, insightful treatment available to the discipline, providing both the academic and the industrial communities with the up-to-date tools, concepts, and techniques needed to conceive and build complex systems.
For junior- and senior-level simulation courses in engineering, business, or computer science. While most books on simulation focus on particular software tools, Discrete Event System Simulation examines the principles of modeling and analysis that translate to all such tools. This language-independent text explains the basic aspects of the technology, including the proper collection and analysis of data, the use of analytic techniques, verification and validation of models, and designing simulation experiments. It offers an up-to-date treatment of simulation of manufacturing and material handling systems, computer systems, and computer networks. Students and instructors will find a variety of resources at the associated website, www.bcnn.net/, including simulation source code for download, additional exercises and solutions, web links and errata.
Simulation with Arena provides a comprehensive treatment of simulation using industry-standard Arena software. The text starts by having the reader develop simple high-level models, and then progresses to advanced modeling and analysis. Statistical design and analysis of simulation experiments is integrated with the modeling chapters, reflecting the importance of mathematical modeling of these activities.
"This book opens up the world of simulation to you by providing the basics of general simulation techonology, identifying the skills needed for successful simulation projects, and introducting a state-of-the-art simulation package." --
