Description

For Industrial Engineering courses focusing on logistic engineering and management.

An authoritative exploration of logistics management within the engineering design and development process, this book concentrates on the design, sustaining maintenance and support of systems from a lifecycle perspective. This is the only text that deals with logistics and system support: (1) as an integrated entity and an integral part of the overall structure of a total “system”; (2) from a total system life-cycle perspective—from the initial identification of a need through design and development, production, utilization and support, and retirement and material disposal; and (3) as a major consideration early in the system life cycle during the system engineering design and development process.

Features

  • NEW - Reflects the current environment throughout—With more emphasis on systems, globalization and international cooperation, outsourcing, horizontal organizations and on the life cycle of systems and life-cycle costing.
    • Provides students with a more immediate and worldwide presentation of logistics and support system activities inherent in the system design and development process.

  • NEW - Supply Chain (SC) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) coverage increased.
    • Familiarizes students with the concepts and principles that have received a great deal of attention in recent years.

  • NEW - Performance-Based Logistics (PBL).
    • Provides students with establishment logistics measures early in design and extending through system test and evaluation.

  • NEW - Integration of the commercial business-oriented elements and defense approach—To include the design for supportability and the sustaining system maintenance and support throughout the planned life cycle.
    • Provides students with emphasis on the integration of the commercial and the defense approaches into a single entity and as a major part of a system infrastructure.

  • NEW - Reliability, Maintainability, Availability, and Logistics Measures chapter added.
    • Provides students with additional measures for purchasing and material flow, packaging and transportation, warehousing and information systems.

  • NEW - Reorganized and revised text material—i.e. System Test and Evaluation Requirements chapter material moved to the System Engineering Process chapter, revised first sections in each chapter, more footnotes added, reorganized bibliography.
    • Provides students with more information with an improved flow of material.

  • NEW - Life-cycle costing (LCC) and LCC analysis coverage expanded.
    • Provides students with more information on an area of high interest.

  • NEW - New technologies and their applications—e.g. electronic Commerce(EC), Information Technology(IT), Electronic Data Interchange(EDI).
    • Provides students with information regarding the latest technologies and their applications.

  • Logistics from a total systems/life cycle perspective.
    • Provides students with activities associated with the determination of requirements, the design and development, production, utilization, sustaining maintenance and support, and retirement of systems.

  • Importance of addressing logistics in the early phases of the system life cycle addressed.
    • Familiarizes students with design engineering aspects and the design of systems for supportability.

  • Multi-disciplinary approach—Includes coverage of reliability, maintainability, human factors and safety, producibility, quality, disposability, and economic feasibility.
    • Provides students with approaches that are essential to meeting the objectives of design for supportability.

  • Extensive use of examples, results from case studies, real-world problem exercises, and analytical tools.
    • Provides students with tools that offer a strong focus on applications.

  • Numerous graphical illustrations, tables, and end-of-chapter questions.
    • Provides students with visual reinforcement of material presented.
