- In this fourth edition, the role of facilities planning within the supply chain has been reexamined. It is now imperative that the facilities planner assist his or her company in progressing through the six levels of supply chain excellence: Business as Usual, Link Excellence, Visibility, Collaboration, Synthesis, and Velocity.
- The 4th edition continues to integrate the engineering design process and application of quantitative tools as a foundation for executing appropriate and successful facilities planning.
- The 4th edition provides more detailed real-world examples and problems concerning current facilities planning practices and dated material has been removed.
- The authors have added new photography of the industry?s latest material-handling equipment and updated the drawing and diagrams to better reflect the practices taking place today.
- For instructors there are improved problem sets, including more quantitative problems, and a greater variety of helpful questions.
- Provides historical perspectives and contemporary views on facilities planning. The book offers the most extensive coverage of facilities planning. The chapter on Quantitative Models (Chapter 10) gives the most comprehensive and in-depth treatment of facilities planning models.
- Outstanding authors whose backgrounds, experiences, and blend of writing make this the best-selling facilities text available. All four are senior, widely-recognized authors with many years of academic as well as practical experience in their subjects. Their knowledge and experiences are reflected in the book.
- Most comprehensive text on the market.
- Material presented using a structured methodology and practical approach.
