The book combines coverage of both strategic and operational issues with an emphasis on the tools and techniques most important to your students for process design and management. Contemporary topical coverage addresses supply chain and e-business applications with appropriate coverage of both manufacturing and service theory and applications. A balanced, thorough coverage of essential topics highlights inventory, JIT, quality, customer and information flow management, and service operations while a unique focus on a value-adding approach throughout the supply chain links the processes of suppliers, the focal company, and its customers. Also included are 21 teaching cases appearing in the textbook's five sections, appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate classes. This mix of process and service applications and management theory offers you much more than any other text of its kind for a process-oriented approach that truly meets the needs of future or practicing professionals.
