IGI Global Releases Handbook for Manufacturing and Production

13 Nov, 2007

Handbook of Computational Intelligence in Manufacturing and Production Management aims to minimize knowledge gap between researchers and production professionals by focusing on computational developments in forecasting, scheduling, production planning, and inventory control.


IGI Global unveiled its Handbook of Computational Intelligence in Manufacturing and Production Management ($195), edited by Dipak Laha, Jadavpur University, India, and Purnendu Mandal, Lamar University, United States.

The handbook focuses on developments in computational intelligence in areas such as forecasting, scheduling, production planning, and inventory control. The application of various tools as described in the handbook reportedly will lead to rapid turnaround of jobs and minimization of in-process inventory, reducing the overall cost of production.

The book also aims to minimize the technology knowledge gap between researchers and production professionals. Individuals can obtain knowledge of a variety of research methods through theoretical and experimental examples and case studies.

The Handbook of Computational Intelligence in Manufacturing and Production Management is organized into three sections and contains 23 chapters. Chapters include discussion about the following topics:

  • condition monitoring using computational intelligence
  • heuristics and metaheuristics for solving scheduling problems
  • modeling and coordination of dynamic supply networks
  • modeling with system archetypes
  • intelligent laser scanning of 3D surfaces using optical camera data
