springer.com Production / Logistics 36 International Series in Operations Research & Management Science Markovian Demand Inventory Models D. Beyer , Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, CA, USA; F. Cheng , IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, NJ, USA; S. P. Sethi , University of Texas at Dallas, TX, USA; M. Taksar , University of Missouri-Columbia, USA Inventory management is concerned with matching supply with demand and is a central problem in Operations Management. The problem is to find the amount to be produced or purchased in order to maximize the total expected profit or minimize the total expected cost. In real life, demands may depend on environmental considerations or the events in the world such as the weather, the state of economy, etc. These events are represented by stochastic processes - exogenous or controlled. The authors are concerned with inventory models where these world events are modeled by Markov processes. Their research was carried out over a period of ten years beginning in the early nineties. 2007. Approx. 260 p.

Herrmann , University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA (Ed.) This book concentrates on real-world production scheduling in factories and industrial settings. It includes industry case studies that use innovative techniques as well as academic research results that can be used to improve production sched- uling. Its purpose is to present scheduling prin- ciples, advanced tools, and examples of innovative scheduling systems to persons who could use this information to improve their own production scheduling. 2006. XVII, 318 p.

Kogan, C.S. Tapiero, Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY This book provides practitioners and business students with the means to understand, model and analyze outstanding issues and problems that are the essential elements in managing supply chains today. (1) Supply chains and operations modeling and management section will provide static and time models and their gradual extension to a supply chain environment. (2) Inter-temporal supply chain management section will address this aspect as differential games. The differential games will be presented as natural continuous-time extensions of static models so that the effect of various types of dynamics on supply chains can be assessed and insights can be developed. (3) Risk and supply chain management section will deal with risk and supply chains as well as providing numerous applications regarding the management of interdependent opera- tions and quality in a supply chain environment.
