Announcing Our New Operations Management 11/e and Principles of OM 9/e

March 27, 2013

text cover omJay and I are thrilled to announce that Pearson has just published the new editions of our Operations Management texts. We think these books are our most exciting revisions ever and we hope you agree! Both the hardcover 11th edition of Operations Management: Sustainability and Supply Chain Management and paperback 9th edition of Principles of Operations Management: Sustainability and Supply Chain Management (which is the same book less six Business Analytics Modules) have an amazing amount of new and updated material. Here are just a few of the changes:

A new chapter called Sustainability in the Supply Chain, which includes two video case studies. Here we focus on corporate social responsibility, the 3Rs of sustainability, and mathematical models for revenue “design for disassembly” and life cycle costing.

A significant revision of Chapter 11, Supply Chain Management, with new examples, graphs, tables, problems, and organization.

A new chapter called Supply Chain Analytics, which expands our SCM coverage with 4 analytic approaches to evaluating supply chains: disaster risk modeling, management of the bullwhip effect, supplier selection, and transportation mode analysis.

magicFive new video case studies featuring operations management at the NBA’s Orlando Magic and its home Amway Center:  “Forecasting Ticket Revenue for Orlando Magic Basketball Games” (Ch.4), “Building Sustainability at the Orlando Magic’s Amway Center” (Supp. 5),  “Using Revenue Management to Set Orlando Magic Ticket Prices” (Ch.13), “When 18,500 Orlando Magic Fans Come to Dinner” (Ch.14), and “From the Eagles to the Magic: Converting the Amway Center” (Ch.15). This new series of 8-12 minute videos supplements the 31 other videos Jay and I have created with prior editions. The Magic are also featured in homework problems, examples, and OM in Action boxes throughout the book so students see integrated coverage of this fascinating sports organization.
