This text is developed and written for an intermediate/advanced course in Operations Management or Manufacturing Planning and Control. This course will be found in the better undergraduate programs in the MBA curriculum as an elective, or in Industrial or manufacturing engineering departments. The text will compete indirectly with MRP based books such as Vollmann et al, Fogarty/Hoffman, or McLeavey/Narasimhan in most cases because of the business emphasis, but may also appeal to Nahmias and/or Hopp/Spearman adopters. The "CMM" text covers all aspects of modern manufacturing management with emphasis on the recent strategic approaches such as JIT and TQM and within a style and level of rigor appropriate for business students.
