In this new text, the author blends accessible coverage of quantitative methods with engaging qualitative topics. Meaningful examples clearly illustrate the logic and analytical thought process of modeling, and behavioral analysis is included in the use and implementation of analytical models. With a unique chapter of plant tours early in the book, students get a real-world, practical orientation throughout the text.
* "On the Job" boxes- profiles of people in professions outside of operations who use operations management concepts daily- demonstrate the importance of Operations management to non-majors.
* Quantitative and qualitative issues are fully integrated. Extended examples and real-world cases show students the range of analysis needed to manage, and how these tools are complementary rather than mutually exclusive.
* Four different Plant Tours- including both manufacturing and service operations- show students real production systems in action.
* "In Good Company" boxes demonstrate the importance of operations management in real companies.
* The coverage is state-of-the-art throughout, including Lean Production. Just-in-time production, EDI, concurrent engineering and cellular production. Sections on ecological implications are included in several chapters.

From the Publisher:

Joseph Martinich has taught operations management for 12 years to majors and nonmajors. This book will motivate non-operations management majors to learn about the field and apply it to business and engineering professions. It integrates quantitative and qualitative issues, combating math anxiety while teaching the foundations of the discipline. Quantitative topics are made accessible, focusing on how they work rather than presenting them in the abstract. It includes almost every topic traditionally taught in operations management courses, giving professors greater flexibility.

Review:

Solutions Manual and Instructor's Resource Guide available. -- The publisher, John Wiley & Sons
