Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In the sixth edition, Heizer (business administration, Texas Lutheran U., Seguin, Texas) and Render (operations management, Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida) have added six sections of quantitative modules that cover decision-making tools, linear programming, transportation models, waiting-line models, learning curves, and simulation, and reworked the remaining chapters to emphasize new trends, especially; strategy, global operation, service operations, and the impact of the internet. The body of the text gives an overview of the subject, using numerous case studies, including an integrated running case study of Southwestern U., to provide examples from the real world.
