Industrial engineering originated in the United States, and although the popularity of this discipline has grown worldwide, there is still little information available outside of the US regarding its practical use and application. Industrial Engineering Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings raises the bar and examines industrial engineering from a global perspective. Representing the best papers from the International Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIIE) conference held in Istanbul in June 2013, and developed by contributors from at least six different countries, this material lends their expertise on the international impact of industrial engineering applications and provides a thorough understanding of the subject. Focusing on two key aspects of the industrial engineering (IE) discipline, non-traditional settings and international environments, the book introduces applications and incorporates case studies illustrating how IE-based tools and techniques have been applied to diverse environments around the world. Each chapter represents a novel application of industrial tools and techniques. In addition, the authors highlight some of the more exciting developments and implementations of industrial engineering. The book enables both students and practitioners to learn from universal best practices and observe the international growth of the discipline. Consisting of ten chapters, this groundbreaking work includes content that: Presents applications in the area of natural resource development, or more specifically open-pit mining, to optimize the extraction sequence of blocks—an operation that can have a major impact on mining profitability Studies disasters and details where to best locate sites for disaster waste procession (multiobjective optimization is used to identify site locations and provide solution guidance) Examines factors affecting buying patterns and behaviors at private shopping clubs (Turkey is used as a benchmark and a technology acceptance model is used to study the buying behavior) Explores optimization methods that can be used to increase the effectiveness of the timing of traffic signals Discusses the Turkish banking sector and the measurement of efficiency of its banks (a topic that greatly impacts the emerging financial market) Applies quantitative models to study 29 commercial banks and 12 investment banks Industrial Engineering Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings explores the globalization of this expanding discipline and serves as a guide to industry professionals including systems, industrials, manufacturing engineers, design, production, environmental, and Lean Six Sigma engineers, and is also relevant to applied ergonomics, business scm, business logistics, and business operations management.

Industrial Engineering: Management, Tools, and Applications, Three Volume Set provides innovation applications and case studies that are drawn from multiple countries. The chapters in the books represent the best papers from the International Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIIE) Conference held in Istanbul in June 2013, sponsored by the IIE. The books showcase real-life case studies and applications that are set internationally, and allow students and practitioners to learn from best practices and also to study the growth of the discipline internationally. Global Logistics Management focuses on the evolution of logistics in the last two decades, and highlights recent developments from a worldwide perspective. The book details a wide range of application-oriented studies, from metropolitan bus routing problems to relief logistics, and introduces the state of the art on some classical applications. The book addresses typical logistic problems, most specifically the vehicle routing problem (VRP), followed by a series of analyses and discussions on various logistics problems plaguing airline and marine systems. It clearly illustrates logistic problems encountered in many different application areas, and provides you with the latest advances in classical applications. Industrial Engineering Applications in Emerging Countries explores recent industrial engineering (IE) applications on selected logistics problems in emerging countries. The book provides case studies and critical reviews of IE tools and techniques and discusses their use in sectors such as pharmaceutical manufacturing, maritime risk analysis, electricity markets, petroleum production, traffic congestion, and public transportation. With numerous examples and case studies, the book focuses on productivity measurement and improvement in process industries. It gives you the resources to devise solutions to overcome the challenges of moving goods through a system that in many cases still depend on human muscle and are susceptible to costly disruptions.

The software industry represents a unique example of a truly global industry, growing rapidly in both developed and developing countries. This important book provides the first serious study of the growth of the industry in emerging markets, with an excellent discussion of the key cases including India, China and Brazil. Simon Commander is to be congratulated producing such a timely and policy relevant book. Saul Estrin, London Business School, UK This book aims to promote an understanding of the origins and dynamics of the software industry in a number of key emerging markets Brazil, China, India and Israel, and to establish what experiences, if any, are potentially replicable in other prevailing markets. In-depth interviews with leading players in the industry are combined with other new data to provide a comparative study of the dynamics of the sector in emerging markets, to emphasise the public policy implications of these developments, and place them in a wider international context. The last 25 years have seen an explosive growth in the software industry, which is still overwhelmingly dominated by firms from North America and Europe. The authors argue that a number of companies from emerging markets have made significant headway and have even consolidated their positions on account of major cost advantages. They go on to explain the factors behind these developments, and conclude that the software industry, through its ability to project good corporate governance, its lack of hierarchy and widespread use of motivating working practices and compensation schemes, has proved a powerful example to other sectors in these emerging market economies. This book will be of immense interest to both academics and practitioners with an interest in development economics or technology.

From the Author's Preface The rapid advances in Materials Science and Engineering . . . have convinced many that the design, production and use of advanced materials will shape future manufacturing industries. Competitive advantage within entire industries is shaped by the quality of the materials available to the manufacturers; the early availability of a new material can be leveraged manyfold. In addition, advanced materials or advanced materials processing can signal the birth or death of entire industries, and access to higher quality and lower cost material has permitted some countries to obtain market dominance in several key industries. Much of the new strategy entails harnessing the potential of innovative technology, that is, going back to the nano and molecular states of materials and new, effective ways to create, process, and eventually use them. Rather than being concerned with a relatively small number of generic materials, each possessing a broad range of uses, the materials sector is increasingly concerned with tailoring a growing list of ever more specialized materials for narrow niche applications. New products with better growth prospects such as high-performance alloys, composites, laminates, and a variety of coatings have been emphasized. Materials firms also have sought ways to overcome the weaknesses of ceramics and fully exploit their formidable strengths. "Functional materials" that do more than support structures have been developed for use in sophisticated electronic, optical, magnetic, and biotech applications. This book will . . . show what materials will be available in the next decade or two, in addition to those currently available and their effect on material design, start-up, and production processes.
