According to Dr. Heizer, “We have been working with User Solutions for several years to make their resource management tools available to our readers. Students can go online to the User Solutions web site and download sample programs that address real-world issues. This allows students to address examples of production planning and scheduling challenges that are difficult to convey on the written page. Our continuing work with User Solutions has been a wonderful aid in providing students with realistic insight into the challenges of production scheduling.”
