For undergraduate/graduate courses in Materials Management, Operations Management, Planning/Control.
Designed to take students beyond the problems included in introductory texts on production and inventory control, this casebook features 35 examples of the problems that production and inventory management professionals face throughout their working lives. The casebook is coordinated with the text Introduction to Materials Management by Arnold and Chapman—but is appropriate as a companion to any core production/inventory control text—and is available in customized format via Prentice Hall's JIT Custom Publishing program.

"I think it is important for cases to have a 'real life' feel to keep the [reader's] interest. These cases could have actually happened in a real-life setting today. Also, the cases require an in-depth and logical thought process to solve them. This is important in the learning process. Good job!" — Doug Kopsik, Greenville Technical College
This Casebook presents 35 cases that illustrate the problems employees in production and inventory management programs will face in their work. In addition to serving as a companion to the textbook Introduction to Materials Management, Fourth Edition, by Arnold and Chapman, the Casebook may be applied to courses that do not use the Arnold & Chapman text.
Key Benefits of the Casebook
Rather than merely applying a formula and finding an answer, users learn to apply multiple concepts, and also to consider the solution in the context of the situation. In addition, the more challenging cases require the user to think about management issues involved in their on-the-job decisions.
Users of these cases are typically undergraduates in an introductory production and inventory control course, but the cases are also useful in an introductory course in a master's program.
