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.
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. The book explores the globalization of this expanding discipline and helps you learn from universal best practices and observe the international growth of the discipline.

"The editors have done a great job of covering a very broad area of research with their selection of topics. The selection includes traditional topics, such as a review of the state of the art in location selection models, as well as contemporary ones, such as logistics in the face of global warming, models in healthcare, and disaster management applications. The topics...are relevant and interesting, well written, technically sound, and constitute significant contributions to the area of logistics. The topics collectively emphasize the importance of simultaneous consideration of multiple aspects of logistics problems together (e.g., tactical and operational, distribution and inventory, here-and-how, and wait-and-see decisions), which is a major and relatively recent trend that researchers as well as practitioners should be aware of. The book communicates this important message. Each one of several application-oriented chapters could easily be used as case studies in graduate-level applied operations research or in a logistics course."

"Interesting applications of Operations Research in diverse areas, some new (such as arctic transportation and relief logistics), some traditional. ... Most of the articles highlight the application area and develop the methodology to address the problem."

"Industrial engineering, born and evolved in the United States, has spent the last three decades growing beyond its original borders into nontraditional applications worldwide. With that, IIE Senior Vice President, International Bopaya Bidanda, Ihsan Sabuncuoglu, and Bahar Y. Kara have joined together to document that growth and edit the three-volume set Industrial Engineering: Management, Tools, and Applications, which consists of Industrial Engineering: Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings, Industrial Engineering Applications in Emerging Countries, and Global Logistics Management. The volumes present international case studies and applications that illustrate industrial engineering in emerging countries."
