Introduction to Materials Management

In: Inventory

Introduction to Materials Management is an introductory text written for students in community colleges and universities. It is used in technical programs, such as industrial engineering and manufacturing engineering; in business, operations and supply chain management programs; and by those already in industry, whether or not they are working in materials management.

The text covers all the basics of supply chain management, manufacturing planning and control systems, purchasing, physical distribution, process, quality and its management using Lean, Six Sigma and Total Quality Management. The writing style is simple and lucid and the material, examples, questions and problems lead the student logically through the text.
