Handbook of Military Industrial Engineering (Industrial Innovation Series) Free PDF Download

Winner of the 2010 IIE/Joint Publishers Book-of-the-Year Award. In light of increasing economic and international threats, military operations must be examined with a critical eye in terms of process design, management, improvement, and control. Although the Pentagon and militaries around the world have utilized industrial engineering (IE) concepts to achieve this goal for decades, there has been no single resource to bring together IE applications with a focus on improving military operations. Until now. The Handbook of Military Industrial Engineering is the first compilation of the fundamental tools, principles, and modeling techniques of industrial engineering with specific and direct application to military systems. Globally respected IE experts provide proven strategies that can help any military organization effectively create, adapt, utilize, and deploy resources, tools, and technology. Topics covered include: Supply Chain Management and decision making Lean Enterprise Concepts for military operations Modeling and optimization Economic planning for military systems Contingency planning and logistics Human factors and ergonomics Information management and control Civilian engineers working on systems analysis, project management, process design, and operations research will also find inspiration and useful ideas on how to effectively apply the concepts covered for non-military uses. On the battlefield and in business, victory goes to those who utilize their resources most effectively, especially in times of operational crisis. The Handbook of Military Industrial Engineering is a complete reference that will serve as an invaluable resource for those looking to make the operational improvements needed to accomplish the mission at hand
