Takes an Integrative Approach that Allows Managers to Understand the Big Picture
As the author introduces and explains each stage, he also offers guidance as to when to involve outside parties including potential providers of raw materials and subcontractors who may take part in the production and assembly process. He presents the seven stages of the production process― system design, detailed design, manufacturing planning, production readiness, low rate initial production, and production―in sequential order, examining how each one leads to the other. This allows readers to not only grasp the basic concepts crucial for success at each stage, but also to visualize the big picture so that they can anticipate problems, eliminate inefficiency, and make informed managerial decisions.
