Production and Operations Management

K C Arora (Author)
Today, world as well India is facing a big challenge in manufacturing and service sector. The book can provide solutions to different problems faced by the production and operation managers. This book will help both people working in organizations as well as students. For long the term production has been associated with a factory where goods are produced in the physical sense. However by generalizing the concept of production as the process through which goods and services are created, we can include both manufacturing and service organizations within purview of production management. Inclusion of services within the scope of production enables us to look at the problem of production management in a much wider perspective. This brings a number of seemingly non-manufacturing sectors of economy such as transport, energy, agriculture, warehousing, banking etc. within the production system. That is why; the term production and operations management has been suggested by many to indicate the general applications of the techniques of management. In this book you will learn about the aspects of Management of manufacturing and service organizations.
