About the Author


"I have been using Dr. John Miltenburg's work for the better part of two decades. I was delighted when he first assembled his material into a text, and am equally pleased to see a Second Edition. This new book cycles between the macro and the micro. It provides an excellent overview of manufacturing in the current global business context. It then dips into detail and walks you through the tools to build a sensible, winning manufacturing strategy for your business in its own unique context. John has added material to cover strategy for your company's international network of factories. He has retained his Manufacturing Strategy Worksheet which enables your marketing people to understand the manufacturing reality (and vice versa!) on a single page. A clearly-written book for those who want to see the whole as well as the parts of manufacturing strategy."
