This book explains, in a practical way, the operational linkage of series purchasing with cost and project management. The text takes the key example of a company setting up a new factory from which to launch an innovative product. It examines how a company acquires the wide range of services needed in order to be successful. The authors clearly demonstrate how purchasing, from the very first decision, contributes to the success of the enterprise.
