In many industrial companies, strategic developments are predominantly based on corporate marketing decisions with manufacturing being forced to react to these at the back end of process. In Manufacturing Operations Strategy, Hill demonstrates how decisions over manufacturing should form part of the strategic direction of the company as a whole. Written by the leading international figure in the field of manufacturing strategy and thoroughly updated with new case studies and material on the latest thinking in the field, this text provides a wide-ranging, comprehensive study invaluable to students and practitioners alike.
Terry and Alex Hill use the well established model of order qualifiers and winners to provide an excellent textbook that explains both the importance of manufacturing operations strategy and steps towards its successful implementation. The book provides practical guidance for managers and executives of manufacturing organisations trying to understand and implement an operations strategy, and students studying operations management.

Hill's practical approach to integrating high level manufacturing decisions into a strategic framework can create a foundation for business success. The models developed can be used by industrialists, academics and student to gain insights into the critical issue of how to gain competitive advantage from manufacturing. The application of these models is widely applicable across many industrial sectors as diverse as printing, automotive, aerospace and consumer goods. - Trevor Pye, Principle Lecturer, Engineering and Knowledge Management, Coventry University Terry and Alex Hill use the well established model of order qualifiers and winners to provide an excellent textbook that explains both the importance of manufacturing operations strategy and steps towards its successful implementation.
