This leading text, renowned for its decision-making approach to operations management, includes 21 case studies of real companies (now integrated throughout), in addition to many industry examples. Operations decision responsibilities are organized into 5 categories: quality, process, capacity, inventory, and workforce and the emphasis is on the management of the operations function vs. quantitive analysis or planning and control - quantitative material is contained solely within chapter supplements. Equal coverage is given to services and manufacturing and both are integrated into a common decision-making framework. In this new edition there is greater emphasis on quality, with new material on quality function deployment, progress capability analysis Baldridge Award criteria, Garvin's 8 dimensions, and the 7 tools of quality. Five critical themes are emphasized throughout: the interrelationship of service and manufacturing, the need for customer directed operations, continuous improvement, the integration of operations decisions with other business functions, and the globalization of operations.
