Operations Management is a modern success story that plays an essential role in any organization. Andrew Greasley provides a clear and accessible introduction to this important area of study, focusing on all key areas of operations in both manufacturing and service industries.

Features to aid student learning include:

  • Worked examples offering step-by-step guides to solving quantitative problems.
  • End-of-chapter exercises covering topics for discussion and exercises to help develop practical skills and critical thinking.
  • Further reading and annotated web-links to assist students in locating additional study materials.

"Written in a clear style, this book is down-to-earth in its approach. The examples and case studies are current and engage students; learning. It is clear that Andrew Greasley has reflected on improving students; learning ... his book will stand head and shoulders above other OM books."
—Spencer Onuh, University of Portsmouth

"The attention given to the service industry is a strong selling point."
—Lars Sørensen, Copenhagen Business School

"A comprehensive text that covers all the topics normally covered in the operations management curriculum through a practical, student-friendly approach."
—Professor David Bennett, Aston Business School
