Designing and Managing the Supply Chain: Concepts, Strategies, and Case Studies

Front Cover
As the most up-to-date, cutting-edge supply chain management book on the market, the third edition of Designing and Managing the Supply Chain discusses the problems, models, and concepts derived from issues related to effective supply chain management. While many core supply chain management issues are interrelated, the authors have tried to make each chapter as self-contained as possible, so that the reader can refer directly to chapters covering topics of interest. Each chapter utilizes case studies and numerous examples. Mathematical and technical sections can be skipped without loss of continuity. Most textbooks do not include models and decision support systems robust enough for industry, but that is not true of this new edition. The accompanying CD-ROM also features the return of two simulations, the Computerized Beer Game and the Risk Pool Game, and a computerized tool.
