Preface The material in this book is intended as an introduction to the field of operations management. The topics covered include both strategic issues and practical applications. Among the topics are forecasting, product and service design, capacity planning, management of quality and quality control, inventory management, scheduling, supply chain management, and project management. My purpose in revising this book continues to be to provide a clear presentation of the concepts, tools, and applications of the field of operations management. Operations management is evolving and growing, and I have found updating and integrating new material to be both rewarding and challenging, particularly due to the plethora of new developments in the field, while facing the practical limits on the length of the book. This Eleventh Edition Contains a Considerable Amount of Material . . . much more than one could hope to cover in a single semester. However, there is also considerable flexibility in terms of what material to cover. This allows instructors to select the chapters, or portions of chapters, that are most relevant for their purposes. That flexibility also extends to the choice of relative weighting of the qualitative or quantitative aspects of the material. As in previous editions, there are major pedagogical features designed to help students learn and understand the material. This section describes the key features of the book, the chapter elements, the supplements that are available for teaching the course, highlights of the eleventh edition, and suggested applications for classroom instruction. By providing this support, it is our hope that instructors and students will have the tools to make this learning experience a rewarding one. What’s New in This Edition This edition has been revised to incorporate and integrate changes in the field of Operations Management, and the many suggestions for improvement received from instructors around the world who are using the text. The following are key among the revisions: • The sequence of chapters has been changed to improve the flow. • A tutorial has been added on working with the normal distribution. • A list of key points has been added to every chapter. • New material and more emphasis have been devoted to these topics: Service Supply chain management Ethical conduct Sustainability Step-by-step problem solving • Linear programming is now a chapter rather than a chapter supplement, to allow more flexibility on when and where it is used. • There is added emphasis on ethics in every chapter. • Throughout the text, there are new, updated readings and photos to provide students with a motivating view of the critical importance of operations management today. • Available for instructors, OM Video/DVD series Volumes 1–16 document the latest innovations in operations at companies such as Zappos.com, Xerox, Burton Snowboards, FedEx, Honda, and more. Acknowledgments I want to thank the many contributors to this edition. Over the recent editions, reviewers and adopters of the text have provided a “continuously improving” wealth of ideas and suggestions. It is encouraging to me as an author.
