From the Inside Flap:

PREFACE

This casebook is intended to be used as a companion to the textbook Introduction to Materials Management. However, its usefulness is not limited to this particular text. The cases are designed as examples of the problems that production and inventory management professionals face throughout their working lives.

Students of these cases are typically undergraduates in an introductory course, but the cases also could be used in an introductory course in the master's program, especially with supplemental questions.

This casebook is written to take the student beyond the problems included in Introduction to Materials Management. Most chapters have cases, and some cases bridge more than one chapter. Also, the cases vary in level of difficulty, with the more challenging cases requiring the student to think about the management issues involved in their decisions on the job. In all cases, the student has to think beyond the pure "formula application" problem typically found in many textbooks. Generally, the cases will force students to apply multiple concepts and to consider the solution in the context of the situation as opposed to merely finding an answer.

Each of us brings to this Introduction to Materials Management Casebook extensive experience in manufacturing and many years of full-time teaching. We welcome your feedback on the content in this text.

We would also like to thank the reviewers of this text: Doug Kopscik, Greenville Technical College; Daniel C. Steele, University of South Carolina; Mehran Hojati, University of Saskatchewan; and Dan Ost, Fox Valley Technical College.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefits of the Casebook
Rather than merely applying a formula and finding an answer, users learn to apply multiple concepts, and also to consider the solution in the context of the situation. In addition, the more challenging cases require the user to think about management issues involved in their on-the-job decisions.

Users of these cases are typically undergraduates in an introductory production and inventory control course, but the cases are also useful in an introductory course in a master's program.
