Overview

It is not surprising that many companies are involved in the analysis of their supply chains. Most textbooks do not include models and decision support systems robust enough for industry. DESIGNING AND MANAGING THE SUPPLY CHAIN: Concepts,Strategies,and Cases discusses these problems,models and concepts at that appropriate level. While many core supply chain management issues are interrelated,the authors have tried,when possible,to make each chapter as self contained as possible,so that the reader can refer directly to chapters covering topics of interest. Each chapter utilizes case studies and numerous examples. Mathematical and technical sections can be skipped without loss of continuity. The book also contains two software packages,the Computerized Beer Game and the Risk Pool Game which help illustrate many of the concepts discussed.
