Top Customer Reviews
Contents include the mechanics of master scheduling, managing the MPS in various manufacturing environments (make-to-stock, make-to-order, etc.), planning bills, finishing schedules, capacity planning, demand management, and system implementation. Key points are punctuated by a running fictional account of master scheduling in action -- with all the personalities and politics that bear on this essential task.
Proud presents the vast material in a logical and entertaining manner. Detailed computational examples are provided for many of the situations a master scheduler will face. Proud is not afraid to depart from standard APICS language or teachings when appropriate -- but he does clearly identify when he has done so. Perhaps most significant is his exceptional grasp of the human relations and management issues involved. He shows that master scheduling is more than just crunching numbers.
Highly recommended as preparation for the APICS Master Planning exam.
This book helps me a lot to updrage my skill and knowledge of operation management.
This one doesn't disappoint, it is the premier book on this topic, and gives you all the info you need.
Although, as usual, you have to interpret a little for short shelf life FMCG.
But apart from this, it is great!
