All too often, entrepreneurs start small businesses unaware of their need for a supply chain network. And, large companies are acquired and their product lines merged with little regard for supply chain network integration and rationalization. Written for practitioners by a practitioner with 40 years of experience, Supply Chain Construction: The Basics for Networking the Flow of Material, Information, and Cash presents an integrated, comprehensive blueprint for building and/or rebuilding an end-to-end supply chain. Emphasizing flexibility and strength, the book explores optimal ways to withstand product evolution, contingencies, organizational life cycles, and disasters for the long haul.

Each chapter begins with a storyline describing the interpersonal relationships and intrapersonal conflicts that attend change. This is followed by a logical sequence of checklists, diagrams, maps, mathematical models, and spreadsheets for each topic. The author presents a 20-step blueprint that defines the supply chain network container and its product contents and includes example applications of the blueprint to nontraditional businesses found in small to medium-sized companies. He also includes decision factor charts for selecting the right suppliers, factories, and distributors; comprehensive examples of both forward and reverse supply chain network construction; and detailed explanations of inbound, midbound, and outbound logistics considerations.

Just as a surgeon performing a delicate operation needs to understand the consequences of cutting into an intersection of the body’s internal organs, you, the supply chain practitioner, need to understand the consequences of cutting into an intersection of a network’s material flow, information flow, and cash flow. Covering the practical issues of highly integrated networks woven together by corporate relationships and enabled by information technology, this book shows you how to systematically build and/or rebuild a robust supply chain that not only ensures growth, but also solidifies the future of your company as a whole.

Walker, CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP retired as Director of Supply Chain at StarTrak Information Technologies, LLC after 40+ years practitioner experience in engineering, materials, purchasing, operations, and supply chain architecture with Hewlett-Packard, Agilent Technologies and Siemens Building Technology. Bill wrote the book Supply Chain Architecture: A Blueprint for Networking the Flow of Material, Information and Cash. He now teaches supply chain engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

Review:

"Walker provides a comprehensive process for creating or modifying an end-to-end supply chain network. His 8-step methodology and the 20-step blueprint are a must approach for anyone building a new supply chain network or modifying an existing one. Walker’s approach reflects 40 years of hands on experience in supply chains. His subject matter expertise is reflected throughout the book through his clear writing style and inclusion of supporting figures and tables. The use of a storyline gives the reader an easy-to-read introduction to each chapter and the inclusion of rarely discussed topics like relationships and returns are engaging. I like the use of value circles for comparing 'as is' to 'to be' performance measures as well as the inclusion of a chapter on risk management. This a must-read book for all supply chain practitioners."
-Jeffrey L. Johnson, Senior Business Analyst
