Introduction to Materials Management is an introductory text written for students in community colleges and universities. It is used in technical programs, such as industrial engineering and manufacturing engineering; in business programs; and by those already in industry, whether or not they are working in materials management.
This text has been widely adopted by colleges and universities not only in North America, but also in other parts of the world. APICS—The Educational Society for Resource Management recommends this text as the reference for certification preparation for various CPIM examinations. In addition, the text is used by production and inventory control societies in other countries, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, and Brazil, and by consultants in presenting in-house courses to their customers.
Introduction to Materials Management covers all the basics of supply chain management, manufacturing planning and control systems, purchasing, and physical distribution.

For the fifth edition, we developed the Introduction to Materials Management Casebook, authored by Arnold, Chapman, and Lloyd M. Clive. The casebook takes the student beyond the textbook problems by presenting a situation followed by related analysis questions. Most text chapters have cases associated with them, as noted in the table that follows the Table of Contents, and some cases bridge several chapters. Cases vary in level of difficulty, with the more challenging cases requiring students to think about the management issues involved in their decisions on the job. Reviewers noted that the casebook has added overall rigor to this text.
APPROACH AND ORGANIZATION
Materials management means different things to different people. In this textbook, materials management includes all activities in the flow of materials from the supplier to the consumer. Such activities include physical supply, operations planning and control, and physical distribution. Other terms sometimes used are business logistics and supply chain management. Often, the emphasis in business logistics is on transportation and distribution systems with little concern for what occurs in the factory. While some chapters in this text are devoted to transportation and distribution, emphasis is placed on operations planning and control.
Distribution and operations are managed by planning and controlling the flow of materials through them and by using the system's resources to achieve a desired customer service level. These activities are the responsibility of materials management and affect every department in a manufacturing business. If the materials management system is not well designed and operated, the distribution and manufacturing system will be less effective and more costly. Anyone working in manufacturing or distribution should have a good basic understanding of the factors influencing materials flow. This text aims to provide that understanding.
APICS—The Educational Society for Resource Management defines the body of knowledge, concepts, and vocabulary used in production and inventory control. Establishing standard knowledge, concepts, and vocabulary is essential both for developing an understanding of production and inventory control and for making clear communication possible. Where applicable, the definitions and concepts in this text subscribe to APICS vocabulary and concepts.
The first six chapters of Introduction to Materials Management cover the basics of production planning and control. Chapter 7 discusses important factors in purchasing; Chapter 8 covers forecasting. Chapters 9, 10, and 11 look at the fundamentals of inventory management. Chapter 12 discusses physical inventory and warehouse management, and Chapter 13 examines the elements of distribution systems, including transportation, packaging, and material handling. Chapter 14 covers factors influencing product and process design. Chapter 15 looks at the philosophy and environment of Just-in-Time manufacturing and explains how operations planning and control systems relate to Just-in-Time. Chapter 16 examines the elements of total quality management.
