Supply chains have complex life cycles that must be understood and managed at every stage, from introduction to growth, maturity to decline. In Reinventing the Supply Chain Life Cycle, leading supply chain innovators and researchers Marc J. Schniederjans and Stephen B. LeGrand have presented a complete framework for doing so. Now, in this accompanying Student Workbook, they provide the hands-on tools and practice students need to master this framework and put it to work. This Student Workbook guides students through using formulas, step-by-step procedures, and other quantitative or methodological methods they will need to manage supply chain life cycles. In most chapters, analytical computations are shown using Excel spreadsheet software. The Student Workbook also contains a complete set of pedagogical tools, including clear chapter objectives and summaries, self-examination quizzes, and many additional problems (some with solutions), all fully aligned with the original text, and designed to promote faster learning and deeper insight.
