This Casebook presents 35 cases that illustrate the problems employees in production and inventory management programs will face in their work. In addition to serving as a companion to the textbook Introduction to Materials Management, Fourth Edition, by Arnold and Chapman, the Casebook may be applied to courses that do not use the Arnold & Chapman text. 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 user to think about management issues involved in their on-the-job decisions. Users of these cases are typically undergraduates in an introductory production and inventory control course, but the cases are also useful in an introductory course in a master's program.Arnold, J. R. Tony is the author of 'Introduction to Materials Management Casebook' with ISBN 9780139732232 and ISBN 0139732233.
