Production Engineering and Management under Fuzziness Book Excerpt:

Production engineering and management involve a series of planning and control activities in a production system. A production system can be as small as a shop with only one machine or as big as a global operation including many manufacturing plants, distribution centers, and retail locations in multiple continents. The product of a production system can also vary in complexity based on the material used, technology employed, etc. Every product, whether a pencil or an airplane, is produced in a system which depends on good management to be successful. Production management has been at the center of industrial engineering and management science disciplines since the industrial revolution. The tools and techniques of production management have been so successful that they have been adopted to various service industries, as well. The book is intended to be a valuable resource to undergraduate and graduate students interested in the applications of production management under fuzziness. The chapters represent all areas of production management and are organized to reflect the natural order of production management tasks. In all chapters, special attention is given to applicability and wherever possible, numerical examples are presented. While the reader is expected to have a fairly good understanding of the fuzzy logic, the book provides the necessary notation and preliminary knowledge needed in each chapter.

Recent Metaheuristic Computation Schemes in Engineering Book Excerpt:

This book includes two objectives. The first goal is to present advances and developments which have proved to be effective in their application to several complex problems. The second objective is to present the performance comparison of various metaheuristic techniques when they face complex optimization problems. The material has been compiled from a teaching perspective. Most of the problems in science, engineering, economics, and other areas can be translated as an optimization or a search problem. According to their characteristics, some problems can be simple that can be solved by traditional optimization methods based on mathematical analysis. However, most of the problems of practical importance in engineering represent complex scenarios so that they are very hard to be solved by using traditional approaches. Under such circumstances, metaheuristic has emerged as the best alternative to solve this kind of complex formulations. This book is primarily intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Engineers and application developers can also benefit from the book contents since it has been structured so that each chapter can be read independently from the others, and therefore, only potential interesting information can be quickly available for solving an industrial problem at hand.

Advanced Metaheuristic Methods in Big Data Retrieval and Analytics Book Excerpt:

The amount of data shared and stored on the web and other document repositories is steadily on the rise. Unfortunately, this growth increases inefficiencies and difficulties when trying to find the most relevant and up-to-date information due to unstructured data. Advanced Metaheuristic Methods in Big Data Retrieval and Analytics examines metaheuristic techniques as an important alternative model for solving complex problems that are not treatable by deterministic methods. Recent studies suggest that IR and biomimicry can be used together for several application problems in big data and internet of things, especially when conventional methods would be too expensive or difficult to implement. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as ontology, plagiarism detection, and machine learning, this book is ideally designed for engineers, graduate students, IT professionals, and academicians seeking an overview of new trends in information retrieval in big data.
