Automatic Material Handling System
Together with Huazhong University of Science and Technology
- Presents mathematical foundations of intelligent manufacturing system.
- Explores dispatch methods at local and system level.
- Illustrates theories via case studies.
Aims and Scope
This book systematically introduces modeling, performance evaluation and applications of Automatic Materiel Handling System (AMHS) in semiconductor manufactucing, and focuses discussion on the coordination of two subsystems. Resources dispatch and optimization are conducted on operational research combined with cases studies. Written in a practical way, it is an essential reference for researchers and engineers in manufacturing and management.
