Modeling and Simulation of Logistics Flows 2
Dashboards, Traffic Planning and Management
Publication Date: January 2017 Hardback 234 pp.
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 second volume presents operational research with a spreadsheet, dashboards with a spreadsheet, scheduling and planning with a project manager and the simulation of route traffic.
1. Operational Research Using a Spreadsheet.
2. Dashboards, Spreadsheets and Pivot Tables.
3. Scheduling and Planning Using a Project Manager.
