Overview

The Most Complete, Up-to-Date, Single-Volume Reference to Modern Operations and Supply Chain Management

This “field manual” is ideal for every manager and student who needs a deeper understanding of supply chain and operations management. It is also ideal for people in lean and Lean Sigma training programs who need to develop a more precise language for their process improvement efforts.

Leading expert Arthur V. Hill covers the entire field, offering nearly 1800 authoritative entries.

Students can use it to prepare for case discussions, exams, and job interviews and to quickly develop a mental map for the entire discipline.
