Overview

A brand new collection of world-class supply chain design solutions… 3 authoritative books, now in a convenient e-format, at a great price!

 

3 authoritative eBooks deliver state-of-the-art guidance for designing and optimizing highly competitive global supply chains!

 

This unique 3 eBook package will help you design state-of-the-art supply chains that deliver rapid, quantifiable, and sustainable competitive advantage. The Encyclopedia of Operations Management is the perfect single-volume "field manual" for every supply chain or operations management practitioner and student. Nearly 1,500 well-organized, up-to-date definitions cover every facet of supply chain design, planning, management, and optimization. Next, in Reinventing the Supply Chain Life Cycle, Marc J. Schniederjans and Stephen B. LeGrand show how to 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. They walk you through: starting, creating, and building new supply chains; realigning them for growth; adjusting to dynamic change, readjusting networks, building flexibility, and managing new 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, tools, and examples for negotiation, performance measurement, anticipating change, improving agility, meeting commitments to social responsibility and the law; and more. Finally, in Supply Chain Network Design, four leading IBM and Northwestern University experts show how to use strategic supply chain network design to achieve dramatic new savings. They integrate rigorous principles and practical applications to help you select the right number, location, territory, and size of warehouses, plants, and production lines; and optimize the flow of all products through even the most complex global supply chain. You’ll find better ways to decide what (and where) to manufacture internally; and which products to outsource (and to whom). You’ll get help managing cost vs. service-level tradeoffs; using analytics to improve decision-making; and re-optimizing regularly for even more savings. Whatever your role in supply chain design, this collection will help you systematically optimize performance, customer value, and profitability.

 

From world-renowned supply chain experts Arthur V. Hill, Marc J. Schniederjans, Stephen B. LeGrand, Michael Watson, Sara Lewis, Peter Cacioppi, and Jay Jayaraman
