Optimal Control and Optimization of Stochastic Supply Chain by Dong-Ping Song

By Dong-Ping Song

Optimal keep an eye on and Optimization of Stochastic provide Chain platforms examines its topic the context of the presence of various uncertainties. a variety of examples with intuitive illustrations and tables are supplied, to illustrate the structural features of the optimum regulate rules in quite a few stochastic offer chains and to teach tips to utilize those features to build easy-to-operate sub-optimal guidelines. partially I, a basic advent to stochastic offer chain platforms is equipped. Analytical versions for numerous stochastic provide chain structures are formulated and analysed partly II. partly III the structural wisdom of the optimum keep watch over guidelines bought partially II is applied to build easy-to-operate sub-optimal keep watch over guidelines for numerous stochastic provide chain structures for this reason. ultimately, half IV discusses the optimisation of threshold-type keep an eye on guidelines and their robustness. A key function of the booklet is its tying jointly of the advanced analytical versions produced via the necessities of operational perform, and the easy recommendations wanted for implementation. The analytical types and theoretical research propounded during this monograph might be of gain to educational researchers and graduate scholars logistics and provide chain administration from standpoints in operations examine or commercial, production, or keep an eye on engineering. the sensible instruments and strategies and the qualitative insights into the information underlying useful provide chain structures could be of comparable use to readers from extra industrially-based backgrounds.

Einführung in die Strömungsmaschinen by Hartwig Petermann

By Hartwig Petermann

Unter der Bezeichnung Stromungsmaschinen werden Turbinen, Kreiselpumpen, Tur boverdichter, Propeller und Stromungsgetriebe zusammengefaBt. Stromungsmaschi nen begegnen uns als Haupt-und Hilfsmaschinen in Kraftwerken, als Antriebsmaschi nen von Flugzeugen und Schiffen, als Hilfsmaschinen in vielen technischen Einrichtun gen der lndustrie und des tiiglichen Lebens. Sie sind somit im Maschinenbau von grund legender Bedeutung. Deshalb braucht jeder Maschinenbauer Grundkenntnisse tiber Wir kungsweise und Anwendungsmoglichkeiten der Stromungsmaschinen. Das vorliegende Buch solI diese G rundkenntnisse vermitteln. Es ist so abgefaBt, daB es ohne Vorkenntnisse der Stromungslehre und der Thermodynamik verstanden werden kann. Urn ein Kennenlernen des gesamten Gebietes der Stromungsmaschinen mit mog lichst geringem Arbeitsaufwand zu ermoglichen, werden die gemeinsamen Grundlagen aller Stromungsmaschinen zusammenfassend behandelt. Der Lehrstoff ist so abgefaBt, daB der Leser nach dem Studium dieses Heftes auf weiterflihrende Literatur libergehen kann. Beim Zeichnen der Abbildungen und beim Lesen der Korrekturen haben mich die Angehorigen des Pfleiderer-lnstituts fUr Stromungsmaschinen der Technischen Vniversitiit Braunschweig unterstlitzt. Ihnen allen danke ich fUr ihre Hilfe. Mein ganz besonderer Dank gilt meinem Nachfolger als Leiter des Pfleiderer lnstituts fUr Stromungsmaschinen, Herrn Prof. Dr.-lng. G. Kosyna, und meinen langjiihrigen Mitarbeitern Herrn Prof. Dr.-Ing. M. Pekrun und Herrn Dr.-lng. R. Rotzoll, die mir wertvolle Anregungen gegeben haben. Oem Springer-Verlag danke ich fUr die angenehme Zusammenarbeit und dafUr, daB meinen Wlinschen weitgehendst entgegen gekommen wurde.
