Most textbooks on business process management focus on either the nuts and bolts of computer simulation or the managerial aspects of business processes. Covering both technical and managerial aspects of business process management, Business Process Modeling, Simulation and Design, Second Edition presents the tools to design effective business processes and the management techniques to operate them efficiently. New to the Second Edition Three completely revised chapters that incorporate ExtendSim 8 An introduction to simulation A chapter on business process analytics Developed from the authors’ many years of teaching process design and simulation courses, the text provides students with a thorough understanding of numerous analytical tools that can be used to model, analyze, design, manage, and improve business processes. It covers a wide range of approaches, including discrete event simulation, graphical flowcharting tools, deterministic models for cycle time analysis and capacity decisions, analytical queuing methods, and data mining. Unlike other operations management books, this one emphasizes user-friendly simulation software as well as business processes, rather than only manufacturing processes or general operations management problems. Taking an analytical modeling approach to process design, this book illustrates the power of simulation modeling as a vehicle for analyzing and designing business processes. It teaches how to apply process simulation and discusses the managerial implications of redesigning processes. The ExtendSim software is available online and ancillaries are available for instructors.

VLSI for Wireless Communication, Second Edition, an advanced level text book, takes a system approach starting with an overview of the most up to date wireless systems and the transceiver architecture available today. Wireless standards are first introduced (updated to include the most recent 3G/4G standards in the second edition), and translates from a wireless standard to the implementation of a transceiver. This system approach is particularly important as the level of integration in VLSI increases and coupling between system and component design becomes more intimate. VLSI for Wireless Communication, Second Edition, illustrates designs with full design examples. Each chapter includes at least one complete design example that helps explain the architecture/circuits presented in this text. This book has close to 10 homework problems at the end of each chapter. A complete solutions manual is available on-line. VLSI for Wireless Communication, Second Edition, is designed as a primary text book for upper-undergraduate level students and graduate level students concentrating on electrical engineering and computer science. Professional engineers and researchers working in wireless communications, circuit design and development will find this book valuable as well.
