Excellent Management Tool
on 3 October 2013
I have to disagree with all the other reviewers on this page, i thought this book was brilliant.
As someone who has spent 15 years working in Manufacturing with a huge worldwide company, i have been involved in Logistics in some point or another for the last 10 years.
I ran a project a few years ago to initiate a new way of introducing parts to the shop floor and developed a kanban card system which is now used worldwide in every one of our worldwide factorys.
I recently went to France, China, Turkey, America to name but a few places where we have sites to implement logistics systems.
I really dont see why anyone who is not in the field of manufacturing or Logistics would even get this book at all because it is a specialised field.
For any production Engineers like myself, i found it invaluable to read, and actually gave it to my intern Steffi who came over from Germany to read, and because of this book she is currently developing a logistics project of her own.
Obviously people dont understand it because they have never been in a factory in their life, and have no idea how production and logistics need to work side by side otherwise the entire factory just shuts down.
I have now recommended this book to the Logistics director to recommend to all the interns that come in, because i personally believe it is that good.
