For undergraduate Operations Management courses. A broad, practical introduction to operations, reinforced with an extensive collection of practice problems. Operations Management presents a broad introduction to the field of operations in a realistic and practical manner, while offering the largest and most diverse collection of problems on the market. The problems found in this text also contain ample support--found in the book's solved-problems, worked examples, and myomlab, Pearson's new online homework and tutorial system--to help students complete and understand assignments even when they're not in class. The tenth edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect operations management today--and now features myomlab. For a briefer version without the quantitative modules at the end of the text, see Heizer/Render's Principles of Operations Management, 8e.
