It discusses operating systems: production process, process design and flow analysis, inventory concepts and models, time-to-market and responsiveness, project management, effects of uncertainty and waiting lines in producing an organization’s products and services. It focuses on quality management and statistical quality controls, as well as recent process-improvement ideas. Case studies are used to highlight central issues.
