Computer Methods in Operations Research focuses on the computational methods used in operations research. Topics covered range from list processing to sorting and searching, networks, and critical path methods. Resource-constrained scheduling methods and linear programming methods are also discussed, along with the branch and bound concept. Comprised of 11 chapters, this book begins with a review of some of the basic principles that make a software development effort successful, emphasizing the need to keep things simple and understandable. The reader is then introduced to the basic principles of list processing, searching, and sorting; the concept of networks and several matrix- and list-oriented methods for representing networks in the computer; and the critical path method. Subsequent chapters deal with more complex programs and algorithms to handle scheduling of activities under precedence and resource restrictions; the resource-constrained scheduling problem, formulated both in an exact (using integer programming) and in a heuristic manner; the design of algorithms for the solution of large linear programming problems; and the application of list processing concepts to the development of branch and bound algorithms for solution of combinatorial optimization problems. The book also considers the design of random number generators and discrete event simulation programming before concluding with a description of two programming languages, GPSS and WIDES, for use in simulation modeling. This monograph will be of value to students and practitioners of operations research and industrial engineering.

Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the optimization of complex processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of production and service systems. Computational Intelligence Systems find a wide application area in industrial engineering: neural networks in forecasting, fuzzy sets in capital budgeting, ant colony optimization in scheduling, Simulated Annealing in optimization, etc. This book will include most of the application areas of industrial engineering through these computational intelligence systems. In the literature, there is no book including many real and practical applications of Computational Intelligence Systems from the point of view of Industrial Engineering. Every chapter will include explanatory and didactic applications. It is aimed that the book will be a main source for MSc and PhD students.

With the growing significance of the end-user in architecture, the subject of briefing is a re-emerging one in architectural education. Various types of computer programs and database management systems have aided in the organization and utilization of brief information as a framework for designing and identifying potential improvements. Computer-Mediated Briefing for Architects overviews the possibilities and limitations offered by various types of computer programs, such as database management systems, diagramming software, CAD, and BIM. This book offers a practical approach in the accommodation of these programs and is an essential reference for architectural educators, students, and practitioners with hands-on experience in either compiling briefs or using the briefs for design.

This comprehensive book provides the students with the basic knowledge of the processes involved in operations research and discusses the techniques of solutions to problems and their applications in daily life. Beginning with an overview of the operations research models and decision-making, the book describes in detail the various optimization techniques such as linear and non-linear programming, integer linear programming, dynamic programming, genetic programming, and network techniques such as PERT (program evaluation review technique) and CPM (critical path method). It also explains the transportation and assignment problems, queuing theory, games theory, sequencing, replacement and capital investment decisions and inventory. Besides, the book discusses the Monte Carlo simulation techniques for solving queuing, demand forecasting, inventory and scheduling problems and elaborates on genetic algorithms. Each mathematical technique is dealt with in two parts. The first part explains the theory underlying the methodology of solution to problems. The second part illustrates how the theory is applied to solve different kinds of problems. This book is designed as a textbook for the undergraduate students of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, production and industrial engineering, computer science and engineering and information technology. Besides, the book will also be useful to the postgraduate students of production and industrial engineering, computer applications, business administration, commerce, mathematics and statistics. KEY FEATURES : Includes a large number of solved problems to help students comprehend the concepts with ease. Gives step-by-step explanation of algorithms by taking problems. Provides chapter-end exercises to drill the students in self-study.

Although several books or monographs on multiobjective optimization under uncertainty have been published, there seems to be no book which starts with an introductory chapter of linear programming and is designed to incorporate both fuzziness and randomness into multiobjective programming in a unified way. In this book, five major topics, linear programming, multiobjective programming, fuzzy programming, stochastic programming, and fuzzy stochastic programming, are presented in a comprehensive manner. Especially, the last four topics together comprise the main characteristics of this book, and special stress is placed on interactive decision making aspects of multiobjective programming for human-centered systems in most realistic situations under fuzziness and/or randomness. Organization of each chapter is briefly summarized as follows: Chapter 2 is a concise and condensed description of the theory of linear programming and its algorithms. Chapter 3 discusses fundamental notions and methods of multiobjective linear programming and concludes with interactive multiobjective linear programming. In Chapter 4, starting with clear explanations of fuzzy linear programming and fuzzy multiobjective linear programming, interactive fuzzy multiobjective linear programming is presented. Chapter 5 gives detailed explanations of fundamental notions and methods of stochastic programming including two-stage programming and chance constrained programming. Chapter 6 develops several interactive fuzzy programming approaches to multiobjective stochastic programming problems. Applications to purchase and transportation planning for food retailing are considered in Chapter 7. The book is self-contained because of the three appendices and answers to problems. Appendix A contains a brief summary of the topics from linear algebra. Pertinent results from nonlinear programming are summarized in Appendix B. Appendix C is a clear explanation of the Excel Solver, one of the easiest ways to solve optimization problems, through the use of simple examples of linear and nonlinear programming.
