Summary This book is written for people in manufacturing management who recognize that they need to know what computer-based production and inventory management systems can do for them. It does not deal with computers or computer programs per se. But just as a book about travel today could not ignore the airlines or their influence on travel, it is about production and inventory management today, when computers are widely available. This book was also designed to be used for college-level education. It can be used as the text for a short course in production and inventory management or as a supplementary text for a mnufacturing or computer systems course of broader scope. - Preface.
