Book Description:
Management engineering is a new field, which is quickly becoming a specific branch of engineering that takes a comprehensive approach to management. The underlying assumption is that the organization can be modeled as an interacting system, with cause-and-effect chains, feedback loops and other structures that behave like those in other systems. Management engineering tools are used to make the system visible so that managers can understand it and guide it better. This book presents current research in this new field.
