Book Description

Providing a broad introduction to industrial and systems engineering, this book defines industrial and systems engineering, describes it place in the business world, and offers a wide picture of the functional areas with some solution techniques. Divided into three parts, the reference explains the role industrial and systems engineering play in an organization and how to manage and control the function ... covers elementary systems theory and feedback ... presents a typical problem for each of the major methodologies of industrial and systems engineering and provides the tools and techniques for effectively solving it ... discusses computerization of these techniques ... emphasizes the relationship of industrial engineering to such areas as operations research and ergonomics ... explores integrated systems design, showing how the I.E. must bring together all the detailed pieces into an integrated system ... adds coverage of simulation ... and updates data where applicable. Suitable for industrial and systems engineers.

5Helped me pass the PE!
By Chris Garvin
Great introductory text for a non-IE. Very broad, covers most of the range of the IE topic. I used it as a study aid when studying for the PE exam; I passed, and I credit much of that to this book.

Good: Covers lots of stuff that was on the exam, including:

-Industrial processes (metal cutting, Taylor tool life eqn)

-Facility layout

-Facility location (traveling salesman, milk run algorithms)

-Operations planning (forecasting demand, EOQ, exponential forecasting)

-Project management (PERT, crashing, forward/backward pass)

-Good introduction to stats and probs in the appendix

Not-so-good:

-Lots of wasted space on management theory (get a business text instead)

-Computer stuff is out-of-date

It does not go into substantial detail, so it is (as titled) an introductory text. Still, I highly recommend it to the non-IE.
