This handbook is a complete and authoritative source of practical information on all aspects of purchasing management. This new edition is the first revision of this classic handbook since 1982, a decade in which many important developments have taken place in business, the economy, and the field of purchasing. Once again developed under the auspices of the National Association of Purchasing Management, Aljian brings the entire field up to date. A special emphasis of this new edition is the coverage given to purchasing policies and procedures in a service economy and in service industries. Previous emphasis in the handbook was on manufacturing-related purchasing issues. Aljian provides up-to-date guidance on all aspects of the general purchasing process from purchasing department through contracts, pricing and negotiation and beyond, to such subjects as purchasing strategy and evaluating purchasing performance. In addition, the handbook also zeros-in on specific subject areas and specific industries, covering in detail global sourcing, raw materials, health care, government purchasing, and other specific subject areas. Targeted coverage is provided on other "special interest" subjects such as materials management, just-in-time, legal aspects of purchasing, scrap and other topics of interest to purchasing managers and corporate departments with which they interrelate

"Effective purchasing management and administration is a continuous process of planning, organizing, directing, motivating, controlling, and evaluating that can contribute significantly to achieving organizational goals and strategies. Creating and maintaining a successful supply chain, which encompasses all phases of a product, from design to disposal, entails challenging existing suppliers, seeking alternative supply sources, and forging new internal and external partnerships. This book is the essential guide to the key functions of purchasing management and its administration, the successful execution of which may determine or dramatically enhance an organization's ability to maximize the value of its purchases and remain competitive in the long term." "Managing Purchasing: Making the Supply Team Work is the second volume in a series of four books created for use in the National Association of Purchasing Management (NAPM) Professional Development Series, a certification program that leads to a C.P.M. (Certified Purchasing Manager) designation. For those professionals not pursuing a C.P.M. certification, this series also provides a sound, comprehensive, and up-to-date perspective on purchasing management and administration. Managing Purchasing is based on the latest edition of the C.P.M. Study Guide and represents the collective work of purchasing academics and professionals who continue to expand the body of professional knowledge in the supply field." "Purchasing can contribute to the overall success of the organization by combating inflation, reducing inventory investment, and lowering the cost of goods. Purchasing professionals can have a significant impact on quality improvement, innovation, and environmental considerations by creating the optimal mix of supply relationships. Managing Purchasing is the authoritative text on the principles and techniques of sound purchasing administration and management."--Jacket
