This book tests the applicability of technical inventory systems to Lebanon business. Professor Emile D. Ghattas who has a wide experience in this field, has succeeded in reconciling operations theory with business reality. The establishment of scientific systems for handling inventories in Lebanese business is possible, but the resistance to such innovation should be identified and treated. what are the problems faced in modernizing inventory systems? what are the prerequisites for such transition and what are its merits?
These many other questions are dealt with by prof. Ghattas in this book. From actual performance which is set as background of the study, the author moves to theory and modifies it in some instances to fit the Lebanese case. Inventory Theory, Which is a major area of Operations Research, is thus presented to the business executive as a workable model that can be translated into practical systems with great economies.
