Overview

After a brief introductory chapter, Factory Physics 3/e is divided into three parts: I – The Lessons of History; II – Factory Physics; and III – Principles in Practice. The scientific approach to manufacturing and supply chain management, developed in Part II, is unique to this text. No other text or professional book provides a rigorous, principles-based foundation for manufacturing management. The Third Edition offers tighter connections between Lean Manufacturing, MRP/ERP, Six Sigma, Supply Chain Management, and Factory Physics. In addition to enhancing the historical overview of how these systems evolved, the authors show explicitly how users can achieve Lean Manufacturing objectives (faster response, less inventory) using the integration aspects of MRP/ERP/SCM systems along with the variance analysis methods of Six Sigma. Factory Physics provides the overarching framework that coordinates all of these initiatives into a single-focused strategy.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Outlines underlying principles that drive operating relationships within a factory. Sections of technical notes present justification, examples, and methodologies that rely on mathematics (although nothing higher than simple calculus). Includes study questions, problems, and intuition-building exercises. This second edition contains more problems and examples, Web support, and additional material on areas including inventory management, personnel, variability pooling, and supply chain management. Can be used for manufacturing management students in a core manufacturing operations course, MBA students in a second operations management course, and BS and MS industrial engineering students in a production control course. Hopp is affiliated with Northwestern University. Spearman is affiliated with Georgia Institute of Technology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
