Supply Chain Management concerns organizational aspects of integrating

legally separated firms as well as coordinating material

and information flows within a production-distribution network.

Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) systems being used for

transaction handling and order execution in most firms today have

been supplemented by Advanced Planning Systems (APS) for

coordinating flows, exploiting bottlenecks and keeping due dates.

This book provides insights regarding the concepts underlying

APS. Special emphasis is given to modelling supply chains and

implementing APS in industry successfully. Understanding is enhanced

through the use of case studies as well as an introduction to the solution

algorithms used.

For the third edition the content of the book has been updated

thoroughly taking into account latest APS software developments,

research results and experiences with APS implementation projects.

Two new case studies have been added resulting in a total

of six case studies now covering a wide range of industrial sectors

and ideas to implement APS successfully. Finally, a new chapter on "Purchasing & Material

Requirements Planning" complements the description of APS.

It is a good book, which provides some general information about SCM and SCP, advanced planning concepts, software overview and case studies. Though it could have been a bit less theoretical and include more practical information (as well as better planning process descriptions in case studies).
