Introduction to Operations Management provides a comprehensive coverage
of operations management for those who come to the subject for the first time.
Central to the book is the convergence of service and manufacturing philosophies.
It takes a management perspective whilst providing clear explanations of numerical
models where relevant. The choice of themes in operations management covers
the syllabuses of most readers, yet the book is compact enough to suit a semester
course. This new edition continues the clear writing style of the first edition,
and includes many new features to assist learning. In-chapter exercises, lists
of quick check-up points and structured assignment questions are added. There
are many references to Internet sources for further investigation. A new chapter
on supply chain management and e-commerce is a highlight, while other areas
have been revised and updated. Many more examples from service and not-for-profit
organizations, and from the public sector, have been included.
