This well-liked and market-leading Operations Management book offers a straightforward presentation of the subject with up-to-date real-world examples and attentive student pedagogy in the 14th edition, which has been entirely updated. The thorough range of content is given in more flexible, modular chapters, allowing it to be used for courses at all levels, from undergraduate to executive education. Since chapters are not dependent on one another, this flexibility enables the choice of more or less quantitative material as well as freedom in presenting order. Both tactical applications and strategic issues are discussed in the themes. Forecasting, product and service design, capacity planning, quality management and control, inventory management, scheduling, supply chain management, and project management are some of the topics covered. The achievement of students is improved by the use of adaptive online learning.
