It never ceases to amaze me how publishers try and squeeze every last penny out of hard up students with new editions of textbooks that are identical to previous ones in almost every single way bar new case studies; yes those little 1 page things on each chapter that all thats changed. And guess what they all haven't changed; Acme Whistle is still there so don't bother with this edition heck don't bother with the previous one either because the 4th edition will suffice. Trust me; the changes are minor.

Operations Management, the 6th edition, is an invaluable read for any practitioner or MBA student, providing excellent and holistic coverage of all key topics within operations. Interspersed with numerous real life case studies and practical applications it is a superb reference guide.

I got this book as my university recommened it for the course. So far its been pretty useful, and I'm pretty sure with it i won't even need to go the lectures, considering they pretty much teach out of the book. Its clear, concise and explains concepts pretty well. Quite colourful and has a lot of good examply case studies in it.

overall a useful texbook -> also came with a special code in the front which which gives you access to online materials, though i haven't used it yet.

This book is recommended for both new managers, and more experienced managers.

It contains numerous examples of best practice from around the world, applicable to many private and public sector challenges.

Slack is a staple read for any one doing/ learning operations management. Covers different topics. Don't particularly like this book - but I am yet to find a better alternative that packages everything well.

There arent any notes on it, it was great for me cause I dont like other`s notes.
The content is also nice and can satisfy the need of one who never studied OM before.
