APPENDIX: PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS

Purpose – The Encyclopedia of Operations Management (EOM) is an ideal “field manual” for students, instructors,
and practicing managers. For students, the EOM is a useful guide for developing an integrated mental map for the
entire field of supply chain and operations management. It has also proven useful as a reference for students
preparing for case discussions, exams, and job interviews. It is particularly helpful for students new to supply chain
and operations management and for international students who need precise definitions of specialized terms.

Tools to Investigate Improvement Opportunities.
