Introduction to Materials Management is an introductory text written for students in community colleges and universities.

It is used in technical programs, such as industrial engineering and manufacturing engineering in business, operations and supply chain management programs and by those already in industry, whether or not they are working in materials management.

The text covers all the basics of supply chain management, manufacturing planning and control systems, purchasing, physical distribution, process, quality and its management using Lean, Six Sigma and Total Quality Management. The writing style is simple and lucid, and the material, examples, questions, and problems lead the student logically through the text.


· All chapters have been updated to reflect new techniques and technology
· New case studies have been added
· Several special topic boxes have been added relating to non-manufacturing settings such as service industries
· End-of-chapter problems have been revised and some new ones added throughout the text
· Expansion of purpose and impact of strategic planning, including environmental and sustainability issues. This allows students to understand the importance of the field at a higher level, including impacts and benefits to society as a whole.
· Additional information included on demand management.
· Additional information included on lean production concepts and Theory of Constraints. Theory of Constraint provides an interesting and potentially effective alternative method to think about several of the concepts in the book and can help students compare and contrast Theory of Constraint with non-Theory of Constraint approaches. (See Ch. 6)
· A brief introduction to Project Management has been added to Ch. 6 to provide students initial exposure to a skill today’s employers are looking for. In addition, we have retained several features from previous editions.
· Margin icons to note key concepts
· Key terms listed at the end of each chapter
· Example problems within the chapters
· Chapter summaries

· Questions and problems at the end of each chapter
