This part of the website introduces PSE theory and PSE Toolbox to the academic audience: university faculty, research scientists, and graduate and undergraduate students working in the area of manufacturing systems. In particular, the intent is to enable offering Production System Engineering courses at the university level. To acquire a full set of viewgraphs for such courses and a solution manual, contact the authors.

About the image at the top of this page: The theory of PSE is based on a recursive aggregation procedure, which leads to a possibility of mathematical analysis of serial lines and assembly systems. The left-hand side of the image above is a graphical representation of the aggregation procedure; the right-hand side is its mathematical representation. Analyses of steady states of this procedure reveal fundamental properties of production lines.
