A guide to help readers meet the demands of an evolving competitive business
environment, Modeling of Responsive Supply Chain outlines novel concepts and
strategies for implementing a fully integrated system of business improvement
methodologies.
This self-contained reference covers various key aspects of supply chain
management, which is crucial to boosting industrial growth in the face of expanding
globalization in the manufacturing and transportation sectors. The book focuses
on topics that could potentially improve the free flow of goods and services
between nations by helping users assess the performance of logistic systems
deployed to achieve this end.
Chapters present a conventional and evolutionary approach to coordinating all
elements of the supply chain to optimize an enterprise’s competitive advantage.
The authors explore different models associated with transportation, facility location,
and assignments, as well as planning and scheduling. They also address diverse
technologies, such as RFID tags used to monitor product ow within the supply
chain network.
This book addresses the importance of:
Recognizing responsiveness as a metric of supply chain performance
Domain interfaces for solving the optimization problem by making supply
chains more responsive
Coordination through contracts to enhance responsiveness
System dynamics methodology to achieve responsiveness, as well as
management principles, control theory, and computer simulation
The use of different types of technologies to build a better supply chain
that achieves higher responsiveness
Few, if any, single volumes provide the detailed explanation of practical and
conceptual approaches found in this book. It covers the entire spectrum of topics
and will be equally useful as a reference for scholars and graduate students and
as a compendium for practitioners dealing with real-life problems in contemporary
supply chain management.
