With an emphasis on modeling techniques, Jeremy Shapiro's MODELING THE SUPPLY CHAIN is the perfect tool for courses in supply-chain management or for professional managers who seek better analytical tools for managing their supply chains, information technologists who are responsible for developing and/or maintaining such tools, and consultants who conduct supply-chain studies using models. Shapiro examines in detail the roles of data, models, and modeling systems in helping companies improve the management of their supply chains. The focus is on optimization models based on linear and mixed integer programming. Shapiro clearly illustrates that when properly applied, these methodologies can create accurate and comprehensive models of great practical value. The book also shows how competitive advantage in supply chain management can be most fully realized by implementing and applying optimization modeling systems.

"The book written by Professor Shapiro presents not only a comprehensive overview of available SC models but also presents them in a well structured way with sound analysis and discussions. Examples of SC optimization presented in the text are excellent and unique. This book gives an interdisciplinary approach to SCM that perfectly represents the goal of this relatively new management discipline."
