Format: Paperback
Professor Monks has done an excellent job of summarizing and giving worked out problems for a very useful field of industry that is often neglected in pure and applied mathematics. This neglect, especially at the pre-college level but also at higher levels, makes it harder for management and operations research college instructors to convey the quantitative methods to their students. These methods are fascinating and include statistical forecasting (with time series and exponential smoothing, correlation, regression), statistical quality control, production scheduling and control (linear programming, dynamic programming), manufacturing /service and maintenance (queuing theory, reliability, simulation, calculus), budgeting, inventory, etc. I recommend this book for everybody in business for themselves or for others and for students at all levels in order to tie in their studies more practically with the real economic world. In addition, the more people are familiar with the methods, the less employment mistakes will be made since so many of the methods interact with hiring, firing, temporary layoffs, etc. With more talent in the field, alternative methods can be developed and tried (for example, present theory assumes that a lot of things involve independent or non-influencing events, but a lot of events are very interdependent and the theory needs far more development there - see my review of Castillo).

Like other Schaum's Guides, this one has about half as many pages as a typical textbook in the subject. It's a supplement without introductory chapters covering topics like the history of operations research. This book is geared toward factory production. It uses a low quality paper stock and costs a lot less than a textbook. Full textbooks typically also have introductory chapters that cover the history of Operations Management and so forth.

This is good supplement but I am not recommending it for most people. I like the topics it covers, which are basic topics in the broad field including some management accounting, some facilities management, job design, and project management. I've been surprised how the various chapters re-enter my life and I review them piecemeal. However, some other supplementary books are industry-targeted.

Here are some examples of similar supplements targeted to specific industries:
Healthcare Operations Management
Hotel Operations Management
Security Operations Management, Second Edition
Service Operations Management (3rd Edition)

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By ALBERTO M.R. FERNANDEZ B. on June 23, 2012
Format: Paperback
The text is a practice manual for the operations management student. It presents concepts, definitions and exercises. The focus is centered in the resolution method or tool. It is very useful as a suplement in operations management courses for MBA, business, industrial engineering, systems engineering, operations research students and related. Traditional topics are developed, but since it is a 1996 edition, the text doesn't develop supply chain management, lean systems, theory of constraints, six-sigma, service operations models, quality management systems or integrated management systems. Also, the text doesn't include bussines cases. However, the text attains its objective: to be a very good exercises manual.

I bought this book as a supplement to my text book, as I was having some difficulties understanding how to complete some problems and my text book does not provide a method for checking my answers on practice problems.

To my dismay, I found that this book explains things relatively the same way that my text book does and does not provide full solutions to all the questions posed in the book. I was expecting much more from this book, but instead I got more of the same.
