In the fourth edition of Manufacturing Planning and Control Systems, state-of-the-art concepts and proven techniques are combined to offer a practical solution to enhancing the manufacturing process. Although most of the basic principles and techniques have remained constant in the field, the supporting examples in this edition have been updated and improved to better explain manufacturing planning and control theories. The authors show you how to take advantage of recent advances and produce goods and services more efficiently. They offer insightful explanations and directions for just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing, master production scheduling, distribution requirements planning and flexible manufacturing systems. Manufacturing Planning and Control Systems, Fourth Edition, is specifically written to aid readers studying for the APICS certification examination.
