Operations management is important, it is exciting, and it is challenging. It is concerned with creating the products and services upon which we all depend and creating products and services is the very reason for any organization¿s existence, whether that organization be large or small, manufacturing or service, for profit or not for profit. Operations management is also at the centre of so many of the changes affecting the business world ¿ changes in customer preference, changes in supply networks brought about by internet-based technologies, and changes in the extent of environmental responsibility that we expect from companies. This revised and fully updated edition of Operations Management continues to provide a clear, well-structured and comprehensive treatment of the subject, balancing a logical approach with the insights that come from operations practice around the world.
