The second edition of the
Handbook of Industrial and Systems Engineering
is an updated col-
lation of the body of knowledge of industrial and systems engineering. The handbook has
been substantively expanded from the 36 seminal chapters in the first edition to 56 land-
mark chapters in the second edition. In addition to the 20 new chapters, 11 of the chapters
in the first edition have been updated with new materials.
As with the first edition, the objective of the handbook is to provide students, research-
ers, and practitioners with a comprehensive and easy access to a wide range of industrial
and systems engineering tools and techniques in a concise format. There is a growing
need for a handbook on the diverse and versatile field of industrial and systems engineer-
ing. The handbook has the following attributes:
One-stop reference for industrial and systems engineering
Comprehensive and yet concise
Up-to-date treatment of topics
Introduction of new technology for industrial and systems engineering
Systems integration approach
Coverage of information engineering
Diversification of contributions
Up-to-date information for teaching, research, and practice
The handbook fills the gap that exists between the traditional and modern practice
of industrial and systems engineering. The overall organization of the book is integra-
tive with respect to quantitative models, qualitative principles, and computer techniques.
Where applicable, the handbook encourages a project model for end-of-chapter exercises
rather than typical textbook exercises. This is to provide open-ended problem exercises
for readers. Most systems issues are open-ended challenges that are best handled from an
integrated project perspective.
Part I of the book covers general introduction with specific reference to the origin of
industrial engineering and the ties to the Industrial Revolution. Part II covers the funda-
mentals of industrial engineering. Part III covers the fundamentals of systems engineer-
ing. Part IV contains chapters on manufacturing, production systems, and ergonomics.
Part V presents chapters on economic and financial analysis. Part VI covers management,
information engineering, and decision making. A new Part VII has been added to this
second edition to cover safety, reliability, and quality. Also, a new and distinct Part VIII
is included in this second edition to cover operations research, queuing, logistics, and
scheduling. The appendix has been expanded in this second edition to include two parts.
Appendix A contains conversion factors, whereas Appendix B contains engineering, sys-
tems, and statistical formulae.
The premise of the handbook remains to expand the breadth and depth of coverage
beyond the traditional handbooks on industrial engineering. I strongly believe this pur-
suit has been fulfilled.
