Review quote

"I think it is important for cases to have a 'real life' feel to keep the [reader's] interest. These cases could have actually happened in a real-life setting today. Also, the cases require an in-depth and logical thought process to solve them. This is important in the learning process. Good job!" - Doug Kopsik, Greenville Technical College

About Stephen N. Chapman

This casebook presents 35 cases that illustrate, the problems facing production and inventory managers. In addition to serving as a companion to Introduction to Materials Management, by Arnold and Chapman, the casebook is also an excellent stand-alone resource.

Key Benefits of the Casebook Rather than merely applying a formula and finding an answer, users learn to apply multiple concepts, and also to consider the solution in the context of the situation. In addition, the more challenging cases require the users to think about management issues involved in their on-the-job decisions.
