Contributor(s): Bozer, YAvuz A [autor] | Tanchoco, J. M. A [autor] | Tompkins, James A [autor] | White, John A [autor]
Publisher: New York : John Wiley & Sons, ©2010Edition: 4th edDescription: x, 854 páginas : ilustraciones, tablas ; 25 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 9780470444047Subject(s): Fabricas -- Diseño y construcción | Instalaciones -- GestiónDDC classification: 725.4
Contents:
Defining requirements. -- Product, process, and schedule design. -- Flow systems, activity relationships, and space requirements. -- Personnel requirements. -- developing alternatives: concepts and techniques. -- Facility design for various facilities functions. -- Manufacturing systems. -- Facilities systems. -- developing alternatives: quantitative approaches. -- Evaluating, selecting, preparing, presenting, implementing, and maintaing. -- Preparing, presentong, implementing, and mainteinig facilities.
Summary: When it comes to facilities planning, engineers turn to this book to explore the most current practices. The new edition continues to guide them through each step in the planning process. The updated material includes more discussions on economics, the supply chain, and ports of entry. It takes a more global perspective while incorporating new case studies to show how the information is applied in the field. Many of the chapters have been streamlined as well to focus on the most relevant topics. All of this will help engineers approach facilities planning with creativity and precision.
