Strengthen critical analysis and decision-making skills for the real world

Operations Management Simulations

The new interactive and robust MyLab Operations Management Simulations give students hands-on experience in real-world roles, helping them to link course concepts to on-the-job application. Using real-life situations, students evaluate information and then engage in decision-making and critical analysis. By receiving real-time, dynamic feedback from stakeholders, students see the actual impact of their choices and can gauge their performance against individual, peer, and system metrics—with results recorded in the MyLab Gradebook. Easy-to-use and self contained, these simulations cover the most-assigned topics in operations management while allowing for easy integration into course curriculum and learning objectives.

Make studying more effective and efficient

Personalized Learning

Not every student learns the same way or at the same rate. With the growing need for acceleration through many courses, it's more important than ever to meet students where they learn. Personalized learning in the MyLab gives you the flexibility to incorporate the approach that best suits the needs of your course and students.
