About the Authors
  • Operations Management: An Integrated Approach provides an account of the systems, processes, people and technology that determine an organisation's strategy and success. With contributions from leading experts internationally, the text takes a comprehensive, comparative, and best-practice approach and applies this specifically to the Asia-Pacific region. Rigorous in scholarship yet eminently accessible in style, Operations Management is replete with pedagogical features - figures and tables, discussion exercises, 'Learnings from the Internet', and a diversity of long and short case studies from around the world. Students are taken on a seamless journey from the fundamentals of operations management, through to the multiple approaches, the various innovations, challenges and risks, and ultimately to models of sustainability and evaluative tools and techniques. The text effectively prepares future managers across every sector of the economy to lead, organise, plan and control a set of resources, in pursuit of identified goals. The book will be supported by an extensive companion website featuring PowerPoint slides for each chapter, sample answers, teaching notes and figures/images for presentations.

    • Written by the leading experts in the field from Australia and New Zealand
    • Includes a dozen case studies
    • Comprehensively details the key frameworks and topics related to the productive systems and functions of all organisations
