More Homework Problems and Questions in the New Editions

December 18, 2018

The 13th edition of Operations Management and the 11th edition of Principles of Operations Management will be available on January 15th and we would like to let you know about some of the changes. First and foremost, you are always asking for more and more material to assign. So here it is:

More Homework Problems—Quantity, Algorithmic
We know that a vast selection of quality homework problems, ranging from easy to challenging (denoted by one to four dots), is critical for both instructors and students. Instructors need a broad selection of problems to choose from for homework, quizzes, and exams—without reusing the same set from semester to semester. We take pride in having more problems—by far, with 818—than any other OM text. For this edition, we have added 180 new algorithmic problems in MyLab Operations Management, with printed versions of each in the text!

Concept Questions

These are multiple choice questions found in MyLab Operations Management that can be used as pretests before you cover a new chapter, as exam questions, or for pop quizzes. There are 4-6 per major text heading (A heads), with over 940 to choose from, including 270 brand new ones.

OM in the News Questions

We have added dozens of new readings, called OM in the News to MyLab. These are 300 word summaries of articles from BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and a dozen other magazines and publications, along with links to the full articles. Each reading has four multiple choice questions that you can assign, and which and are graded by Mylab.

Video Questions

The 46 short videos that we have produced specifically for the text, including 5 brand new ones featuring Celebrity Cruises, are also found in MyLab. Each has four multiple choice questions from which you can select to quiz your students.
