From the reviews:
"This book presents results on sequencing and scheduling problems arising in robotic cells. ... This book is a comprehensive approach for scheduling in flexible manufacturing of robotic cells. The book is equally interesting for use in university courses as well as for practitioners." (Erwin Pesch, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1155, 2009)
"This book deals with ... automated material movements, and especially their optimal design. ... This book ... will be a useful resource for students, practitioners, and researchers. ... this book and its contents are easily understandable to graduate students and researchers who are new to this area. ... This book would be an excellent reference source for any reader who is broadly interested in the optimization of automated manufacturing environments. It could also be used as a textbook for an advanced two-semester graduate-level course." (Srinagesh Gavirneni, Interfaces, Vol. 39 (1), January-February, 2009)
