Robert Jacobs ISBN: 9780073403335 BYU $166.65 $140.05 Loose-leaf Version Operations and Supply Management The Core By F. Robert Jacobs ISBN: 9780077400064 BYU $130.70 $98.05 Description Operations Management focuses on how we do whatever we promised the customer we would do -- provide a product, service or information. How well we are performing is measured by some combination of cost, quality, on-time delivery, speed, flexibility, safety, and how easy it is for customers and others to work with us. Company operations are inextricably intertwined with the manner in which customers and suppliers do business -- if our suppliers sell us bad components, it is difficult for us to sell good product to customers; if customers are late getting information to us, it is difficult for us to deliver to them on time, etc. So, our operating success and theirs are highly dependent on one another. Everyone should be more successful when our decision making is done cooperatively with our suppliers and customers. This cooperative analysis and decision making is referred to as Supply Chain Management, and many industries recognize that the competitive field today is not "company versus company," but "supply chain versus supply chain." Success over the entire supply chain is measured in the same manner as it is in the individual companies. Classroom Procedures Policy on the Use of Laptop Computers in the Classroom

Technology is an essential part of today’s learning environment - that is why the Marriott School requires every student to own a laptop. However, technology, when used inappropriately, can also hinder learning. Most Marriott School students have, at some point, sat next to students who use their laptops in class to check e-mail, talk to friends, instant message, search the internet or play on-line games. Unfortunately, every person sitting around such students is distracted by this behavior and classroom learning decreases. As a result of these distractions, laptops should be closed unless you are instructed to open them. These times may be frequent or infrequent depending upon the nature of the class. Using laptops in class 1) at times other than those established by your Professor or 2) for uses other than as instructed by your Professor is considered inappropriate and would affect your Professor's assessment of your professionalism.
