International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Systems Management (IESM 2011)

The global economy and the recent developments in IC technologies have significantly modified the business organization of enterprises and the way that they do business. New forms of organizations such as extended enterprises, networked enterprises, supply chain networks, etc., turn to appear and they are quickly adopted by most leading enterprises. The evolvement from single enterprise with a high vertical range of manufacture towards enterprise networks offers new business opportunities especially for small and medium enterprises that are usually more flexible than larger companies are. This edition of IESM aims to bring researchers and professionals from all industrial engineering and service sciences disciplines together to discuss issues and share their research and development results and experience. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work.
