More About This Textbook


Between inventory management, distribution, warehousing, and transportation costs, corporations are spending over $1 trillion every year. And who's responsible for managing all that spending? If you're reading this, you probably already know the answer—it's YOU—the supply chain professional. While your job description may differ depending on where you work, the goal to develop and position a company's supply chain to compete and win in today's global marketplace is pretty much the same—and it's daunting.

Now featuring relevant and timely new chapters on keeping your supply chain "lean and green," Supply Chain Management Best Practices, Second Edition describes in detail how you can build a "best-in-class" supply chain, told through the accomplishments—and in some cases, failures—of supply chain practitioners and experts. Author David Blanchard—Editorial Director of Penton Media's Supply Chain Group—provides a unique dual perspective as journalist and insider, with access to top supply chain professionals and their insights on creating and sustaining a world-class supply chain.

Packed with abundant anecdotes, interviews, case studies, research, and analysis, this resourceful book is strategically organized into three parts: Part I briefly introduces supply chain management with examples of best-in-class supply chains in various industries and proven methods for measuring the performance of a supply chain. Part II presents the traditional core processes of supply chain management and discusses the best practices being followed by specific trend-setting companies within the global marketplace. Finally, Part III reveals the strategies, solutions, and technologies used by leading companies to design their extended enterprises, including up-to-the minute tips on going green and lean in your supply chain.

Get your company on the supply chain "best practices" track and achieve supply chain excellence with the world-class guidance found in Supply Chain Management Best Practices, Second Edition.
