Introduction and Overview -- 2. Toeplitz-Circulant Preconditioners for Queuing Systems with Batch Arrivals -- 3. Circulant-Based Preconditioners for Queuing Systems with Markov-Modulated Poisson Process Inputs -- 4. Application of MMPP to Manufacturing Systems of Multiple Unreliable Machines -- 5. Manufacturing Systems with Batch Arrivals -- 6. Flexible Manufacturing Systems of Unreliable Machines -- 7. Manufacturing Systems of Two Machines in Tandem -- 8. Manufacturing Systems with Delivery Time Guarantee -- 9. Multi-Location and Two-Echelon Inventory Systems -- References.Iterative Methods for Queuing and Manufacturing Systems introduces the recent advances and developments in iterative methods for solving Markovian queuing and manufacturing problems. Key highlights include: - an introduction to simulation and simulation software packages; - Markovian models with applications in inventory control and supply chains; future research directions. With numerous exercises and fully-worked examples, this book will be essential reading for anyone interested in the formulation and computation of queuing and manufacturing systems but it will be of particular interest to students, practitioners and researchers in Applied Mathematics, Scientific Computing and Operational Research.Online access to this digital book is restricted to subscription institutions through IP address (only for SISSA internal users)Markov processesApplied mathematics.Engineering mathematics.Probabilities.Manufacturing industries.Applications of Mathematics.Probability Theory and Stochastic Processes.Theory of Computation.Computational Mathematics and Numerical Analysis.Manufacturing, Machines, Tools.SpringerLink (Online service)Springer Monographs in Mathematics,http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4471-3905-8
