About the book

The contents of the book Operations Management will be written by multiple authors and edited by an expert(s) in the field... The chapters will introduce and demonstrate operations management theory to practice case studies. It will demonstrate key results for each sector with diverse real-world case studies. The theory will be accompanied by relevant analysis techniques, with a progressional approach building from simple theory to complex and dynamic decisions with multiple data points, including big data, lot of data, etc. Computational techniques, dynamic analysis, probabilistic methods, and mathematical optimization techniques will be expertly blended to support the analysis of operations management problems with defined constraints and requirements. The book will provide an interface between the main disciplines of engineering/technology and the organizational, administrative, and planning abilities of decision-making. It is complementary to other sub-disciplines such as economics, finance, marketing, decision and risk analysis, etc. The book will be focused on graduate students and professionals in industrial engineering, business administration, industrial organization, operations management, applied microeconomics, and the decisions sciences, either studying maintenance or who are required to solve large, specific, and complex maintenance management problems as part of their jobs. The work will also be of interest to researchers from academia.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
