Presents a report on a postal survey of production managers and production management academics carried out in New Zealand. The managers were asked questions about their tasks, responsibilities, and educational needs. The academics provided data on their teaching of production management. The survey particularly focused on the practical relevance of production management topics commonly taught in undergraduate courses of tertiary institutions. Survey results show that the practical relevance of production management education in New Zealand is significant, but there is room for improvement.
