Easy Read - Tons of Information August 10, 2011

I'm finding it extremely clear and useful. (Including the exercises part) It's a good starting point to understand the production dynamics inside the company. This textbook is also a great read for improving one's skills as a production planner. I recommend this textbook for anyone aiming to work in the materials end of manufacturing.
