Description

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 first volume presents an approach for logistics, an overall view of operational research, the basics of the theory of graphs, the calculation of optimal routes, dynamic programming, planning and scheduling with PERT and MPM, hiding trees and tours, linear programming, the modeling of route traffic and the diverse software for RO and the simulation of logistical flows.
