Let Managing the Supply Chain show you how leading organizations are reducing variability in their supply chain operations--by broadening their focus to encompass today's limitless supply chain possibilities.
"In the last few years, analysis and insight have improved and effective models and decision-support systems have been developed--but these may not be familiar to industry. This book aims to fill this gap by presenting state-of-the-art models and solution methods, insights, and concepts important in the design, control, operation, and management of supply chain systems."
--From Chapter 1: Introduction
Even before decision-makers knew it by name, supply chain management was always a critical factor in determining the success or failure of a business. Today, it has become increasingly apparent that monumental financial advantages can be attained through relatively minor supply chain adjustments--and, conversely, that catastrophic losses can result from ignoring those adjustments.
Managing the Supply Chain provides a step-by-step template for protecting your company's competitive stance by fine-tuning every aspect of its supply chain operation. Case studies and examples reveal the strategies and struggles behind some of today's greatest success stories, including:
Beyond these examples, however, this important book demonstrates how organizations of any size or industry can adopt and adapt successful supply chain strategies to quickly enter new markets and build strategic alliances; understand and implement the latest technologies; identify the best business model for a specific supply chain; improve on-time delivery while significantly decreasing inventory levels and costs; and more.
How can you improve your company's current supply chain strategy? Managing the Supply Chain takes you through your entire supply chain strategy, from supply acquisition through retailer communication, to reveal hundreds of ways in which world-class organizations are asking and answering that question. Regardless of your industry or position within that industry, it will provide you with the answers you need to identify best practices, eliminate costly overlap, and gain valuable advantages from every supply chain operation.About the Author:
