Logistics engineering handbook.


Logistics engineering handbook.

Ed. by G. Don Taylor.

CRC / Taylor & Francis





This collection of 30 articles, all with a unique engineering focus, provide a rigorous mathematical treatment while focusing on the practical rather than the analytical. Covering both traditional and up-to-the-minute topics and techniques, the contributors open with an historical perspective, the economic impact of logistics, the logistics engineering toolkit, metrics and the idea of logistics as an integrating system's function. Articles on logistics activities include such topics as customer service, purchasing and sourcing, demand forecasting (using an analytic hierarchy process and genetic algorithm-based multiple regression analysis), facilities location and layout design, inventory control theory, material handling system, warehousing, distribution system design, and transportation systems. Other major topics include transportation management, enabling technologies and new trends. Includes extensive case studies, exercises and tutorials.
