Book Title: Manufacturing Planning and Control for Supply Chain Management

Author: F. Robert Jacobs, William L. Berry, D. Clay Whybark, Thomas E Vollmann

Book Description:

I used the first version of this text back in the mid-eighties as an undergraduate student. The book exposed me to many new ways of thinking about practical problems and inspired me to keep the real world in mind as I developed models. I used later versions of the text in graduate school and it always amazed me how well connected the authors were with the newest theories and practice. I have used the text in teaching students and hope that it inspires some of them to go on to a research career in the area.
