All businesses strive for excellence in today's technology-based environment in which customers want solutions at the touch of a button. This highly regarded textbook provides in-depth coverage of the principles of supply chain and operations management and explains how to design..., implement, and maintain processes for competitive advantage. With a strategic and results-driven approach, this text offers a unique combination of theory and practice. Now in its fourth edition, Operations Management for Business Excellence has been updated to reflect the major advances and future trends in supply chain management. A new chapter on advanced supply chain concepts covers manufacturing technology, information systems, customer proximity, sustainability, and an omnichannel approach. As a platform for discussion, future trends explored include self-driving vehicles, automation and robotics, and omnichannel retailing. Features include: A host of international case studies and examples, including Apple and Airbus, to demonstrate how theory translates to practice. A consistent structure to aid learning and retention: each chapter begins with a detailed set of learning objectives and finishes with a chapter summary, a set of discussion questions, and a list of key terms. Fully comprehensive with an emphasis on the practical, this textbook should be core reading for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of Operations Management and Supply Chain Management. It would also appeal to executives who desire an understanding of how to achieve and maintain `excellence' in business. Online resources include lecture slides, a glossary, test questions, and a bonus chapter on Project Management.
