Production Scheduling (For People Who Really Have to Do It) is a cookbook of quick and dirty methods for solving problems in real-world, no-nonsense production scheduling. The authors discuss several methods of production scheduling. At the end of each method there is a "political discussion" covering the political good news and bad news a person might run into when using that particular method. Every other chapter is a political chapter. These chapters discuss political realities with guidance and/or one or more war stories of application or misapplication of the previously covered techniques for the amusement and edification of the user.
This book is dedicated to the idea that if you don't deal with the political problems as well as you deal with the technical problems, the political problems will deal with YOU!
