For Industrial Engineering courses focusing on logistic engineering
and management.An authoritative exploration of logistics management
within the engineering design and development process, this book
concentrates on the design, sustaining maintenance and support of
systems from a lifecycle perspective. This is the only text that
deals with logistics and system support: (1) as an integrated
entity and an integral part of the overall structure of a total
"system"; (2) from a total system life-cycle
perspective--from the initial identification of a need through
design and development, production, utilization and support, and
retirement and material disposal; and (3) as a major consideration
early in the system life cycle during the system engineering design
and development process.
