Summary

This handbook begins with the history of Supply Chain (SC) Engineering, it goes on to explain how the SC is connected today, and rounds out with future trends. The overall merit of the book is that it introduces a framework similar to sundial that allows an organization to determine where their company may fall on the SC Technology Scale. The book will describe those who are using more historic technologies, companies that are using current collaboration tools for connecting their SC to other global SCs, and the SCs that are moving more towards cutting edge technologies. This book will be a handbook for practitioners, a teaching resource for academics, and a guide for military contractors.

 

Some figures in the eBook will be in color.

  • Offers an economic comparison model for evaluating SCE strategies for manufacturing outsourcing as opposed to keeping operations in-house
  • Demonstrates how to integrate automation techniques such as RFID into planning and distribution operations
  • Provides case studies of SC inventory reductions using automation from AIT and RFID research
  • Covers planning and scheduling, as well as transportation and SC theory and problems
