9780132963879: Reinventing the Supply Chain Life Cycle: Strategies and Methods for Analysis and Decision Making (FT Press Operations Management)

Optimize supply chains throughout their entire lifecycle: creation, growth, maturity, and decline! Reflecting up-to-the-minute "in-the-trenches" experience and pioneering research, this book illuminates the complex transformational processes associated with managing complex supply chains that incorporate multiple products and services within ever-changing networks. Marc J. Schniederjans and Stephen B. Legrand walk you through: starting, creating, and building new supply chains; then, realigning those supply chains for growth, adjusting to dynamic change, readjusting networks, building flexibility, and managing new supply chain risks. Next, they offer practical, realistic guidance for realigning "mature" supply chains, innovating, controlling costs; and smoothly managing declining demand. Throughout, they offer invaluable insights and tools for negotiating, measuring performance, anticipating change, improving agility and flexibility, meeting commitments to social responsibility and the law; and much more. Based on the authors' up-to-the minute supply chain experience and pioneering academic research, Reinventing the Supply Chain Life Cycle contains many real-world examples and interviews with executives from some of the world’s top organizations. It integrates content related to key certifications and offers valuable material that can be incorporated directly into existing supply chain practices, procedures, and policies.

From the Back Cover:

“Reinventing the Supply Chain Life Cycle, is designed for both supply chain executives and college students. This book is eminently readable and is a valuable addition to supply chain management literature. The book draws on the experience of SC Managers to paint a picture of what the future holds and how the field of supply chain management is likely to develop. The book should prove to be an excellent reference work for practitioners and a text book for students of supply chain management. This book and its companion workbook are important additions to supply chain management reference works.”

 - Ram Narasimhan, University Distinguished Professor & John H. McConnell Endowed Professor Past President, DSI Fellow, PPBA, Michigan State University

 

"A ‘real world’ approach to supply chain design by a true practitioner.”

 - Rodney C. Lee, President & COO, Bay City Electric Works

 

“One of the best ‘top down’ supply chain manuals I have read. Provides a strategy for companies throughout the entire life cycle of the products they manufacture. I appreciated the ethical and sustainable aspects of establishing a modern supply chain. Defining the staff skill sets required was an interesting read.”

 - Harley Peterson, Sr. Manager of Supply Chain, Regal Beloit Corp.

 

Supply chains, like the products and services they deliver, have life cycles. However, supply chain life cycles are more complex than those of individual products and services. Supply chain life cycling is a complex transformational process that incorporates multiple products and services within ever-changing networks. This is the first book that systematically addresses every stage of the supply chain life cycle through its initial introduction, growth, maturity, and decline. Leading supply chain innovators and researchers Marc J. Schniederjans and Stephen B. LeGrand walk you through starting, creating, and building new supply chains; realigning throughout the product/service life cycle; optimizing flexibility and managing changing risks; discontinuing supplier relationships, and much more. They also present invaluable first-person interviews with top supply chain executives at world-class organizations, including Coca-Cola, Home Depot, and Office Depot.

 

Today’s globe-spanning, multi-product supply chains have their own life cycles: they must be constantly reinvigorated and reinvented to remain functioning, alive, and purposeful. Now, two leading experts introduce high-value life cycle approaches to managing these complex supply chains and controlling their evolution.

 

The authors begin with crucial foundational material related to strategy, design, staffing, alignment, negotiation, outsourcing, social/ ethical/legal considerations, sustainability, risk, and cost. These topics are integrated into a running “novelette” that illuminates these interconnected challenges from the perspective of a working Vice President of Operations and supply chain team. The authors present interviews with seven highly respected supply chain executives, representing outstanding manufacturing and service organizations of all sizes. These interviews, combined with many real-world examples, make this book indispensable for everyone who wants to optimize a complex supply chain.

 

Includes new interviews with these exceptional supply chain leaders:

 

Mike Orr, Genuine Parts Company

Mark Holifield, The Home Depot

Yadi Kamelian, Lincoln Industries

Eddie Capel, Manhattan Associates

Ron Robinson, LI-COR Biosciences

James Chris Gaffney, The Coca-Cola Company

Brent Beabout, Office Depot
