The Fourth Edition of Supply Chain Logistics Management presents Logistics in the context of integration within a firm’s Supply Chain Strategy and Operations. The framework of Supply Chain Management is initially presented thereby creating a foundation for in-depth study of the five logistics operational components in Part Two. Challenges and strategies related to design and operational integration of logistics within a global supply chain are discussed in Part three. Part Four focuses on administrative challenges related to cross organizational collaboration, performance measurement, and concludes with the challenges of managing risk and achieving sustainability. An essential feature of the overall presentation is the integration of topical materials and examples into the Supply Chain Logistics value creation process. Text materials are supported by study and challenge questions as well as contemporary cases. The overall presentation integrates the discussion of information technology throughout the text. Illustrations and examples highlight how firm’s deal with operational challenges and use logistics performance to gain competitive advantage.
THE MADER/WINDELSPECHT STORY…The thirteenth edition of Biology is a traditional, comprehensive introductory biology textbook, with coverage from Cell Structure and Function to the Conservation of Biodiversity. The book, which centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for any one- or two-semester biology course.Biology, Thirteenth Edition uses concise, precise writing to present the material as succinctly as possible, enabling students—even non-majors—to master the foundational concepts before coming to class. “Before You Begin”, “Following the Themes”, and “Thematic Feature Readings” piece together the three major themes of the text—evolution, nature of science, and biological systems. Students are consistently engaged in these themes, revealing the interconnectedness of the major topics in biology.Sylvia Mader is an icon of science education. Her dedication to her students, coupled with her clear, concise writing-style has benefited the education of thousands of students over the past three decades. Author Michael Windelspecht has played a critical role in integrating the trusted Mader series of textbooks with digital assets to improve outcomes for students. For over ten years, Michael served as the Introductory Biology Coordinator at Appalachian State University—a program that enrolls over 4,500 non-science majors annually in online, traditional, and hybrid environments. His current interests are in the analysis of data from digital learning platforms for the development of personalized microlearning assets and next generation publication platforms.

Public Administration: Understanding Management, Politics and Law in the Public Sector 8th International Edition
The eighth edition of Public Administration: Understanding Management, Politics, and Law in the Public Sector grounds students in the fundamentals of public administration while embracing its complexity. It describes, explains, and analyzes public administration through the lenses of three well-established perspectives: management, politics, and law. This edition retains its strong U.S. focus while broadening the discussion and themes in recognition of its adoption in about twenty countries abroad and to enhance its global utility as a “world text.”
The Sixth edition of Introduction to Management Science focuses on business situations, including prominent non-mathematical issues, the use spreadsheets, and involves model formulation and assessment more than model structuring. The text has three key elements: modeling, case studies, and spreadsheets. In addition to examples, nearly every chapter includes one or two case studies patterned after actual applications to convey the whole process of applying management science.
Managerial Economics and Organizational Architecture, 5e helps the student to gain an understanding of the basic tools of economics used to solve important business problems. It also provides an in-depth analysis of the firm and corporate governance topics. The Fifth Edition has an improved focus on decision-making and managerial applications, within the structure of an organization.
The primary aim of this book is to provide a text for economics students which gives a good balance between statistics and econometrics.The intention is to prepare students for an introductory course in econometrics, while instilling a clear understanding of statistics. It is suitable for first or second year courses in Introductory Statistics or Introductory Statistics and Econometrics on economics degrees. The book is characterized by Leighton Thomasâ€™ clear style of explanation, gained through 35 years of teaching experience.
Simulation with Arena provides a comprehensive treatment of simulation using industry-standard Arena software. The text starts by having the reader develop simple high-level models, and then progresses to advanced modeling and analysis. Statistical design and analysis of simulation experiments is integrated with the modeling chapters, reflecting the importance of mathematical modeling of these activities. An informal, tutorial writing style is used to aid the beginner in fully understanding the ideas and topics presented. The academic version of Arena and example files are available through the book’s website. McGraw-Hill is proud to offer Connect with the sixth edition of Kelton’s, Simulation with Arena.

A primary objective in a first course in mechanics is to help develop a student’s ability first to analyze problems in a simple and logical manner, and then to apply basic principles to their solutions. A strong conceptual understanding of these basic mechanics principles is essential for successfully solving mechanics problems. This edition of Vector Mechanics for Engineers will help instructors achieve these goals. Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, this edition provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your students. This edition has undergone a complete rewrite to modernize and streamline the language through the text. Over 650 of the homework problems in the text are new or revised. One of the characteristics of the approach used in this book is that mechanics of particles is clearly separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to consider simple practical applications at an early stage and to postpone the introduction of the more difficult concepts.
McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student’s work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a “multi-step solution” which helps move the students’ learning along if they experience difficulty.
