A Firsthand Look at the Role of the Industrial Engineer The industrial engineer helps decide how best to utilize an organization’s resources to achieve company goals and objectives. Introduction to Industrial Engineering, Second Edition offers an in-depth analysis of the industrial engineering profession. While also providing a historical perspective chronicling the development of the profession, this book describes the standard duties performed, the tools and terminologies used, and the required methods and processes needed to complete the tasks at hand. It also defines the industrial engineer’s main areas of operation, introduces the topic of information systems, and discusses their importance in the work of the industrial engineer. The authors explain the information system concept, and the need for integrated processes, supported by modern information systems. They also discuss classical organizational structures (functional organization, project organization, and matrix organization), along with the advantages and disadvantages of their use. The book includes the technological aspects (data collection technologies, databases, and decision-support areas of information systems), the logical aspects (forecasting models and their use), and aspects of principles taken from psychology, sociology, and ergonomics that are commonly used in the industry. What’s New in this Edition: The second edition introduces fields that are now becoming a part of the industrial engineering profession, alongside conventional areas (operations management, project management, quality management, work measurement, and operations research). In addition, the book: Provides an understanding of current pathways for professional development Helps students decide which area to specialize in during the advanced stages of their studies Exposes students to ergonomics used in the context of workspace design Presents key factors in human resource management Describes frequently used methods of teaching in the field Covers basic issues relative to ergonomics and human–machine interface Introduces the five basic processes that exist in many organizations Introduction to Industrial Engineering, Second Edition establishes industrial engineering as the organization of people and resources, describes the development and nature of the profession, and is easily accessible to anyone needing to learn the basics of industrial engineering. The book is an indispensable resource for students and industry professionals.

Pattern Recognition has a long history of applications to data analysis in business, military and social economic activities. While the aim of pattern recognition is to discover the pattern of a data set, the size of the data set is closely related to the methodology one adopts for analysis. Intelligent Data Analysis: Developing New Methodologies Through Pattern Discovery and Recovery tackles those data sets and covers a variety of issues in relation to intelligent data analysis so that patterns from frequent or rare events in spatial or temporal spaces can be revealed. This book brings together current research, results, problems, and applications from both theoretical and practical approaches.

Aus dem Vorwort der Autoren: “ bereits in früheren Auflagen sind uns auch bei dieser Auflage der Motivationscharakter und die Einfachheit der Ausführungen wichtiger als exakte Beweise und technische Freiheiten. Wir glauben, dass die vorliegende Auflage für den praxisorientierten Studenten, auch ohne große mathematische Kenntnisse, attraktiver und besser lesbar geworden ist. Dennoch sind wir der Meinung, dass die Theorie der Operations Research nur von der mathematischen Seite her wirklich verstanden und gewürdigt werden kann. Es ist daher auch die fünfte Auflage nach wie vor an den gleichen Leserkreis wie die früheren Auflagen gerichtet, an die Studenten verschiedenster Fachrichtungen (Ingenieurswesen, Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften sowie mathematische Wissenschaften), die sich manchmal angesichts des riesigen Wortschwalls ihrer Studiengebiete nach einem bißchen mathematischer Klarheit sehnen. Die einzelnen Kapitel lassen sich auf vielfältige Art und Weise zu Kursen oder zum Selbststudium zusammenstellen, da das Buch sehr flexibel angelegt ist. Teil eins liefert eine Einführung in die Thematik des Operations Research. Teil zwei (über lineare Programmierung) und auch Teil drei (über mathematische Programmierung) lassen sich unabhängig von Teil vier (über stochastische Modelle) durcharbeiten.“
