Synopsis: Praise for the First Edition of MASTER SCHEDULING.

"Master scheduling, the complex integration of all management planning activities, is presented in John Proud s effective style. A tremendously broad undertaking, [this book] is sensitive to the need of the practitioner to know how and the executive to know why." Richard Pugliese, Executive (Retired) Monitor Labs Systech, Xerox Corporation

"The master scheduling techniques explained in this book form the best approach for cost effectively replacing the communication links that are often lost in the current environment of reduced people resources. Master Scheduling is the single best resource for these business solutions." Michael L. Bales, consultant with Oliver Wight Americas; former vice president, manufacturing, G&W Electric

"Provides both education for the uninitiated and practical reference material for the practitioner. It is a valuable resource for any enterprise." Tim Ewen, Vice President Supply Chain Management, Applied Magnetics Corporation

"John Proud helps the reader to understand the application of master scheduling principles and describes what works in great detail. Master Scheduling will become the text for any course on master scheduling and the standard resource for all manufacturing companies. . . ." Richard C. Ling, President Richard C. Ling, Inc.

In today s competitive, fast-paced world of manufacturing, every aspect of a company s operation must be highly responsive to a customer s needs. Master scheduling, when used in conjunction with Enterprise Resource Planning, is an essential planning tool that helps manufacturing companies synchronize their production with actual market demand.

In this expanded and updated Second Edition of the definitive book on the subject, John F. Proud shows companies how to create and maintain valid and realistic master schedules. Anyone involved in designing and maintaining a company s master schedule will find a wealth of practical, proven advice in Master Scheduling. From sales and marketing to manufacturing, materials management, and engineering, Proud includes important advice for integrating all areas of a company within the framework of an effective master schedule.

In every chapter of this edition, Proud introduces important new material to ensure complete and up-to-date coverage of this constantly evolving field. Two entirely new chapters covering the process industry and manufacturing at multiple sites domestically and internationally have been added.

The new chapter covering the process industry identifies where the master scheduling mechanics and management issues are similar to intermittent manufacturing, as well as different. The supply management chapter deals with managing an enterprise s internal supply chain. Numerous short case studies are also included to illustrate important topics.

Packed with helpful checklists, examples, and illustrations, Master Scheduling delivers easy-to-follow guidelines for implementing and managing a world- class master schedule. Proud shows managers how to avoid the most common problems while consistently maximizing the accuracy and performance of the master schedule.

Product Description: Master scheduling is an essential planning tool which helps manufacturing companies synchronize their production cycle with actual market demand. Taking into account a company's strategy, processes and operations, master schedulers can then devise a plan based on the needs of the company and the resources available. Master scheduling provides the backbone for all other operations and processes, including JIT, sales and operations planning, materials management, and engineering. This revised edition will reflect current developments and thinking, as well as new cases and examples. Two new chapters cover rationalization and master scheduling in the process industry.
