Miguel Mujica Mota presents his new book
Applied Simulation and Optimization: In Logistics, Industrial and Aeronautical Practice2 Mar 2015 13:30
Presenting techniques, case-studies and methodologies that combine the use of simulation approaches with optimization techniques for facing problems in manufacturing, logistics, or aeronautical problems, this book provides solutions to common industrial problems in several fields, which range from manufacturing to aviation problems, where the common denominator is the combination of simulation’s flexibility with optimization techniques’ robustness.
Providing readers with a comprehensive guide to tackle similar issues in industrial environments, this text explores novel ways to face industrial problems through hybrid approaches (simulation-optimization) that benefit from the advantages of both paradigms, in order to give solutions to important problems in service industry, production processes, or supply chains, such as scheduling, routing problems and resource allocations, among others.
Miguel Mujica Mota is a researcher and lecturer at the Aviation Academy of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. The book will be available in Summer and can be ordered from Springer or Amazon.
