Models for Business and Operations Management, Second Edition, adopts a
structured approach to management decision-making by integrating the
activities of a manufacturing organization. The text is entirely
assignment-based and uses Microsoft’s Excel software to develop over
eighty models. Everyday examples from finance, marketing and operations
management form the basis of the book’s ‘hands-on’ development models.
As in the previous edition, the emphasis is on the practical
implementation of real-world models rather than traditional theoretical
concepts. The book’s learn-by-example approach helps to develop both
analytical and mathematical skills by focusing on the formulation and
building of business models.
New features in the second edition include
Finance models in a new chapter on investment analysis models
Job sequencing including a VBA routine for Johnson’s Rule
Multiplicative Holt-Winter’s model
All models and reference notes updated to the latest version of Excel
Models for Business and Operations Management is ideally suited to
intermediate and advanced undergraduate courses, as well as MBA
courses, in business studies, finance, accounting, information
technology, and operations management. It should be of interest to
managers and analysts who want to develop their model-building skills.
