Industrial engineering originated in the United States, and although the popularity of this discipline has grown worldwide, there is still little information available outside of the US regarding its practical use and application. Industrial Engineering Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings raises the bar and examines industrial engineering from a global perspective. Representing the best papers from the International Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIIE) conference held in Istanbul in June 2013, and developed by contributors from at least six different countries, this material lends their expertise on the international impact of industrial engineering applications and provides a thorough understanding of the subject. Focusing on two key aspects of the industrial engineering (IE) discipline, non-traditional settings and international environments, the book introduces applications and incorporates case studies illustrating how IE-based tools and techniques have been applied to diverse environments around the world. Each chapter represents a novel application of industrial tools and techniques. In addition, the authors highlight some of the more exciting developments and implementations of industrial engineering. The book enables both students and practitioners to learn from universal best practices and observe the international growth of the discipline. Consisting of ten chapters, this groundbreaking work includes content that: Presents applications in the area of natural resource development, or more specifically open-pit mining, to optimize the extraction sequence of blocks—an operation that can have a major impact on mining profitability Studies disasters and details where to best locate sites for disaster waste procession (multiobjective optimization is used to identify site locations and provide solution guidance) Examines factors affecting buying patterns and behaviors at private shopping clubs (Turkey is used as a benchmark and a technology acceptance model is used to study the buying behavior) Explores optimization methods that can be used to increase the effectiveness of the timing of traffic signals Discusses the Turkish banking sector and the measurement of efficiency of its banks (a topic that greatly impacts the emerging financial market) Applies quantitative models to study 29 commercial banks and 12 investment banks Industrial Engineering Non-Traditional Applications in International Settings explores the globalization of this expanding discipline and serves as a guide to industry professionals including systems, industrials, manufacturing engineers, design, production, environmental, and Lean Six Sigma engineers, and is also relevant to applied ergonomics, business scm, business logistics, and business operations management.

The tools and techniques used in Design of Experiments (DoE) have been proven successful in meeting the challenge of continuous improvement in many manufacturing organisations over the last two decades. However research has shown that application of this powerful technique in many companies is limited due to a lack of statistical knowledge required for its effective implementation. Although many books have been written on this subject, they are mainly by statisticians, for statisticians and not appropriate for engineers. Design of Experiments for Engineers and Scientists overcomes the problem of statistics by taking a unique approach using graphical tools. The same outcomes and conclusions are reached as through using statistical methods and readers will find the concepts in this book both familiar and easy to understand. This new edition includes a chapter on the role of DoE within Six Sigma methodology and also shows through the use of simple case studies its importance in the service industry. It is essential reading for engineers and scientists from all disciplines tackling all kinds of manufacturing, product and process quality problems and will be an ideal resource for students of this topic. Written in non-statistical language, the book is an essential and accessible text for scientists and engineers who want to learn how to use DoE Explains why teaching DoE techniques in the improvement phase of Six Sigma is an important part of problem solving methodology New edition includes a full chapter on DoE for services as well as case studies illustrating its wider application in the service industry
