Uncertainty Management for Systems Planning and Design

  title={Uncertainty Management for Systems Planning and Design},
  author={Richard W. Larson and David Simchi-Levi},
SUMMARY Uncertainty management is a particularly significant long-term foundational issue for planning, design and management of engineering systems. Its importance is far greater for engineering systems than it is in traditional engineering design. This is because engineering systems—such as automotive transport, electric power distribution, and the Internet—last longer, and touch more aspects of our society than specific engineering components such as a car, bridge or power plant. The… CONTINUE READING
