Springer Science & Business Media, 17-Jul-2007 – Business & Economics – 451 pages

With the rapid development of information and network technologies and market requirements, new challenges in supply chain design and management have emerged. Notably, there are four new technologies which can affect traditional supply chain management: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology; mobile transaction technology; information handling and storage technology; and multi-agent technology. These new technologies enable global companies to change their ways of thinking about supply chain management in order to cope with the changing environment. In line with this rapid development of technologies are new challenging methodologies: sustainable supply chain management, advanced supply chain planning, available-to-promise (ATP) system and lean supply chain design and management.

Trends in Supply Chain Design and Management: Technologies and Methodologies is a collection of chapters from active researchers and practitioners which describe new trends in supply chain design and management with emphasis on technologies and methodologies. Each chapter contains guidelines detailing the real-world application(s) of the presented technologies and methodologies.

By reading Trends in Supply Chain Design and Management: Technologies and Methodologies, researchers will gain an insight into the evolving trends in supply chain design and management and practitioners will learn about the practical applications of the technologies and methodologies discussed. This book could also be used as a reference handbook by lecturers and postgraduate students in advanced supply chain design and management.
