    At first I was sceptical when I saw that the book had only 500 pages but by the time I was halfway through it I realised that the authors had applied applied their expertise to this opus. This book will suit a first course in operations management, the text is as lean as it can get, the mathematical treatment is kept to its minimum and the text concentrates on the key concepts. The book has an agreeable layout with loads of white space and the book is full of examples and case studies. Each chapter features:* a few summary exhibits presenting in a concise way the concept treated* suggestions for further reading* a dozen of practice problems and among them, at least one has a fully worked solution at the back of the book and at least one has a fully worked solution available on Youtube ( accessible from companion website[...])I quite enjoyed reading the book but more importantly I believe I am now better equipped to carry out process and operations analysis and I owe this to this book. In my opinion this book lacks a single feature and that is a nomenclature with all symbols (it is minor anyway).This is the brief table of contents:1. Introduction2. The Process View of the Organization3. Understanding the Supply Process: Evaluating Process Capacity4. Estimating and Reducing Labor Costs5. Project Management6. The Link between Operations and Finance7. Batching and Other Flow Interruptions: Setup Times and the Economic Order Quantity Model8. Variability and Its Impact on Process Performance: Waiting Time Problems9. The Impact of Variability on Process Performance: Throughput Losses10. Quality Management, Statistical Process Control, and Six-Sigma Capability11. Lean Operations and the Toyota Production System12. Betting on Uncertain Demand: the Newsvendor Model13. Assemble-to-Order, Make-to-Order, and Quick Response with Reactive Capacity .14. Service Levels and Lead Times in Supply Chains: The Order-up-to Inventory Model15. Risk-Pooling Strategies to Reduce and Hedge Uncertainty16. Revenue Management with Capacity Controls17. Supply Chain Coordination18. Sustainable Operations19. Business Model InnovationAPPENDIXESA. Statistics TutorialB. TablesC. Evaluation of the Loss FunctionD. Equations and ApproximationsE. Solutions to Selected Practice Problems

    Well-written book and easy to understand. It is suitable for entry level. It's modern and well organized. I propose to anyone who want to start from the basic.

    One of the best books, if not the best, on the subject. Excellent.
