Re-Engineering the Manufacturing Systemby Robert E. Stein
Synopses & Reviews
An information systems trailblazer in the domains of decision support and factory and supply chain synchronization, the Second Edition of Re-Engineering the Manufacturing System stays true to its title, once again bestowing uniquely straightforward instructions for designing, installing, and operating manufacturing information systems. This updated and expanded source takes care to clarify the often blurred concepts of synchronization and optimization, and offers implementation advice from four discrete angles to yield better bottom-line results. It shows how to exploit an information system, rolling ERP system implementation into the TOC framework to promote profit materialization.
