This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

Engage students with real world examples

Chapter Opening Vignettes engage and stimulate student interest by profiling how real companies apply specific operational issues addressed in each chapter.

Updated! Cases challenge students to grapple with a capstone problem that can be used as an in-class exercise or a homework assignment or team project.

Updated! Managerial Practices provide current examples of how companies deal—successfully or unsuccessfully—with process and supply chain issues facing them as they run their operations. Most have been updated in this edition, giving current examples of operations management to students.

Updated! Examples demonstrate how to apply what students have learned and walk them through the solution process modeling good problem-solving techniques. These examples always close with a unique feature called Decision Point, which focuses students on the decision implications for managers.

End of Chapter Resources

NEW! Learning Goals improve learning by matching each learning goal with a major head in the chapter. Added Learning Goals in Review at the end of each chapter, which highlights where each goal is addressed in the chapter and cross references them with a rich set of MyOMLab resources including Videos, Active Models, Tutors, OM Explorer, and POM for Windows at the student’s disposal.

Key Equations for review purposes, organized by major chapter head.

Key Terms for review purposes, the page references highlight where the concept was first discussed.

Solved Problems reinforce and help students prepare their homework assignments by detailing how to solve model problems with the appropriate techniques presented in the chapter.

Discussion Questions test student comprehension of the concepts through the use of short scenarios.

NEW! Refreshment or addition of about 20 percent of the Problems, all of which are now fully coded for difficulty, arranged by major chapter heads, and represented in the MyOMLab.

Problems sharpen students’ quantitative skills by providing a bridge between chapter materials with a wide selection of homework material.

Active Model Exercises enable students to use provided spreadsheets to do “what-if” analysis of examples presented in the text to see what would happen if certain parameters were changed.

Experiential Learning forms students into teams who work both in and out of class on exercises that actively involve them in team-based discussion questions and decisions. The six exercises reinforce student learning. Each exercise has been thoroughly tested in class and proven to be a valuable learning tool.

Keep Your Course Current and Relevant

NEW! Ten new chapter openers highlighting the operations of Disney Corporation, QVC, Inc., Tesla Motors, Aldi Supermarkets, Kimberly-Clark, Netflix, Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, Philips, Amazon.com, and Coral Princess Cruise liner.

NEW! Chapter 2, “Process Strategy and Analysis,” which combines the strategy and analysis chapters of the tenth edition and streamlines the presentation of these important topics.

NEW! Improved understanding of independent demand inventory control systems, facility location analysis, and inventory placement with the addition of new figures and numerical examples.

NEW! Expanded presentation of the bill of resources for services, including figures and a numerical example, which demonstrates the use of the dependent-demand concept for estimating resource requirements in a service setting.

NEW! Section on supply chain risk management that addresses the operational, financial, and security risks facing supply chain managers today.

NEW! Major overhaul of references, located by chapter sequence at the end of the text.

MyOMLab is not included. Students, if MyOMLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MyOMLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

Personalize learning with MyOMLab

NEW! Created MyOMLab Supplement K, “Layout,” which presents techniques for analyzing layouts in service as well as manufacturing settings.

Adaptive Learning: A way to enable personalized learning at scale. Not every student learns the same way and at the same rate. MyLab with Adaptive Learning continuously assesses student performance and activity in real time, and, using data and analytics, personalizes content to reinforce concepts that target each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Enhanced eText: Engagement in lecture is essential to student success, and continuing that engagement outside of class is just as critical. The new Enhanced eText found within Pearson’s MyLab keeps students engaged in learning on their own time, while helping them achieve greater conceptual understanding of course material. Just as a great instructor brings course material to life, the immersive Enhanced eText brings reading to life – with animations, interactive tutorials, and more. In the Enhanced eText, immediate practice suited to a variety of learning styles is just a click away.Combining resources that illuminate content with accessible self-assessment, Pearson’s MyLab with Enhanced eText provides students with a complete digital learning experience – all in one place.

Powerful Learning Aids: These learning aids help students master the concepts, while offering helpful feedback on incorrect answers. Specific learning aids include:

Help Me Solve This walks students through the steps for solving an algorithmic version of a question, with tutorial cues to help them understand concepts.

An Interactive E-text links students directly to the concepts covered in the problems.

A powerful homework and test manager: MyLab lets you create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests that are automatically graded. You can choose from a wide range of assignment options, including time limits, proctoring, and maximum number of attempts allowed. The bottom line: MyLab means less time grading and more time teaching.

Comprehensive online course content: Filled with a wealth of content that is tightly integrated with your textbook, MyLab lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MyLab lets you teach exactly as you'd like.

Robust gradebook tracking: The online gradebook automatically tracks your students' results on tests, homework, and practice exercises and gives you control over managing results and calculating grades. The gradebook provides a number of flexible grading options, including exporting grades to a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. And, it lets you measure and document your students' learning outcomes.

Easily scalable and shareable content: MyLab enables you to manage multiple class sections, and lets other instructors copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. Should you want to use the same MyLab course next semester, with the same customized settings, you can copy your existing course exactly–and even share it with other faculty members.
