Abstract

Owing to its large operational impact, resource management is increasingly becoming an important function in manufacturing systems. Contributions on how to organize or manage this function are always appreciated. This book aims to provide robust methods for achieving effective resource allocation in dynamic environments, specially focussing on problems such as resource levelling, sizing of machines and production layouts, cost optimization in production planning and scheduling. Details of extensive experimentation are provided for the proposed techniques to put them in a practical perspective. This is particularly useful as it helps the reader to reproduce these techniques and implement them in real scenarios. The book is well written and documented. It is a good reference for postgraduate students and practitioners who are working in the field of resource management and scheduling in manufacturing systems. The book is well written and documented. It is a good reference for postgraduate students and practitioners who are working in the field of resource management and scheduling in manufacturing systems.
