A review by Wendy L. Tate, Ph.D., Professor of Supply Chain Management, University of Tennessee & Co-Editor in Chief Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management speaks more on the example used in the book: "McDonough takes an example of the production of scissors through Planning, Control Systems, Procurement, Purchasing, Sourcing, and Manufacturing. I like the idea of a "story" that runs through the text that the reader can begin to trace all aspects of a product from planning to execution." Having a story line to follow is a unique strength of the book over other existing books on this topic. This is another reason that it is THE book for potential readers on the subject of operations and supply chain management.
