A number of books already cover Supply Chain, Operations Management, and Inventory Management, so why choose this one? This textbook is unique in that it acknowledges the difficulties faced by students studying transport, logistics, or management with very little mathematical or engineering knowledge and makes the various disciplines talk to one another. Having been classroom tested over ten years, the materials used in the book meet all the needs of students in terms of fundamental statistics, mechanical principles, distribution, and inventory management and warehousing.
