About the Book

Operations management is concerned with the fundamental activity of organizations - how they provide goods and services. One of the earliest branches of business and management studies, the increase in international competition has seen a resurgence of interest in the development of the operation management field.

This collection is international in scope, and addresses the four key areas of the subject:

* the foundations of operations management

* the interaction between operations and strategy

* the role of technology

* 'Japanization' and 'just in time' techniques.

With a new introduction providing an overview of the key concepts, and an extensive index, this collection will prove an invaluable reference tool and teaching aid.
