    Basic thinking on Supply Chain

    This is a basic book on supply chain with some good articles compiled together. It gives the picture of how supply chain thinking developed. Though these articles together dont present complete story of supply chain because they are not connected completely to each other. May be a complete volume explaining the supply chain thinking in a systematic way was not planned when the author was publishing his thinking in the form of articles. Still good book if you just are introduced to the topic and try to know supply chain concept, how was it formed etc. before you take on the modern thinking on the topic.
