Description: Foundations of Production and Operations Management focuses on the concepts essential to a simple-quantitative understanding of strategies and tactics in the P/OM field. Using a managerial focus with the systems approach, this book clarifies the field of Production and Operations Management in its current state. The systems approach is ideal for the managerial focus because the systems approach crosses functional boundaries in search of best solutions. This line of attack has come into strong favor by industry managers. In lieu of detailed quantitative discussions, Starr has streamlined, clarified, and updated fundamental qualitative concepts of business and P/OM. This introductory text provides students with a solid managerial framework for making better decisions, developing career skills, and problem-solving to support company sustainability. The writing style encourages educational literacy. This textbook is dedicated to broad educational objectives in the belief that managers prefer to hire well-informed students.
