About Management & Industrial Research Publications

For more than 40 years we have published and distributed the works of Richard Muther and his associates in the management consulting firm of Richard Muther & Associates.

We offer titles in two subject areas:

Industrial engineering: Operations improvement and facilities planning in factories, warehouses, distribution centers, laboratories and office complexes.

Planning science: General principles and methods for making better plans of any kind — faster and with more confidence.

We also provide special materials for team leaders, practitioners and teachers applying the systematic planning methods of Richard Muther & Associates.


“Planning is the most profitable activity of mankind; nothing else returns so much for the time and effort invested.”

Richard Muther, More Profitable Planning
