Description

Printing Production Management provides a systematic treatment of the problem-solving aspects of production management that are so critical to efficient production and company profitability.

Author Gary G. Field draws upon his unique combination of printing production experience — and university studies in quantitative analysis — to provide problem-solving insights into such areas as:

• Plant capacity planning
• Equipment investment analysis

• Layout planning techniques
• Production scheduling dynamics
• Inventory optimization
• Quality process analysis

The production problem-solving techniques presented here draw from the analytical methods used in finance, accounting, and industrial engineering disciplines.

Worked examples and practice problems help develop the skills needed for reaching both long-term strategic production decisions and efficient day-to-day manufacturing solutions.
