Logistics flows are ubiquitous, invading our daily life, and learning how to control them has become indispensable. Whatever the environment, industrial or tertiary, professionals face new challenges and must solve increasingly complex optimization problems in order to address constraints that are constantly evolving.
The three volumes of this work cover the theory and foundations necessary to understand the key challenges of optimization of logistics flows. This is achieved by addressing the basics of operational research, and the presentation, implementation and operation of the main modeling tools and simulation software regardless of the logistics area concerned; transport, storage, conveying, manufacturing, security, control, traffic, recreation, etc. Many examples and exercises with their solutions illustrate cases of actual figures, experienced on the ground by the author.
This third volume presents the simulation of discrete computerized flows, the simulation of mixed flows, 3D flows and evacuation simulation, and 3D flows for transporting and storing.


1. Computer Simulation of Discrete Flows.
