Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 47: Manufacturing and Automation Systems: Techniques and Technologies, Part 3 of 5 deals with techniques and technologies in manufacturing and automation systems.
This book discusses techniques in modeling and control policies for production networks; effective planning and control of day-to-day operations; evaluation of automated manufacturing systems; the use of Petri Nets in modeling, control and performance analysis of automated manufacturing systems; and concurrent engineering and evaluation of concurrency in engineering design. The final chapter discusses the algorithm for solving allocation problems. This book will provide a uniquely significant reference source for practitioners in the field who want a comprehensive source of techniques with significant applied implications.
