3.0 out of 5 stars Student Review July 19 2010
By Business Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm about half way through the book. I will update my review after I finish the book. For a highly quantitative subject matter like operations management, it reads like a history book. For the most part, if you can get through the explanation, you will understand the mechanics of the calculations. The chapters are dense with many concepts and functional formulas and calculations. It even goes into explanation of how to do calculations in excel. However, the book does jump around from topic to topic. You won't have a clear picture of what operations management really is from this book. You will walk away with fragments of knowledge. This book serves as an introduction to decision making, forecasting, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Addition to My Library Aug. 27 2009
By M. E. Bramson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was my first reading of such a lengthy textbook that also incorporates principles of managerial accounting, finance, and economics along with project management. The course I was taking was only six weeks long, and I assure you that in-depth study and mastery of the material takes longer. It was a nice balance of theory and application in formula and calculation. I found the text well laid out and easy to follow in most areas, as the author does a superb job of keeping description and explanation as simple as possible. I heartily recommend this book for anyone serious about the study of operations management.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a great Kindle Version Jan. 13 2011
By Marty - Published on Amazon.com
I recently spent $80 for theOperations Management Kindle Edition of this book and it's really not ready for primetime. I don't know what the publisher did, but there is mis-aligned text and graphics, random characters through the text and misspelled words, and this is only in the first chapter. Did anyone QA this thing?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the last edition, and well presented info Nov. 8 2012
By Kristin B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Got this because I didn't want to spend $160 on the new edition. Turns out that other than some chapter renumbering it's pretty much the exact same book. Even the end of chapter questions are the same. I recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best textbook for College JUnior/Senior level class April 17 2009
By SJ - Published on Amazon.com
I use this book for an Operations Management class I teach at the University (Junior/Senior) level. I find the book to be well-written and well organized.

It covers all aspects of operations management with authority, lucidity, and without too much information overload or clutter.

I highly recommend this book.
