The Market-Driven Supply Chain

Book description

Customer demands for individual attention and specialized products are transforming commerce at every stage—including the supply chain. Today’s highstakes economy requires dynamic, market-savvy sales and operations planning (S&OP) to keep pace with accelerating service demands and response times. It’s not as daunting as it sounds with the tools, tips, and case studies in The Market-Driven Supply Chain. This practical yet expansive book helps organizations transition from outdated supply-driven processes to new market-driven models. Readers learn how to: • Use robust analytics for conducting value segmentations and simulation analyses • Develop a customer-centric culture and a collaborative organizational structure • Dynamically rebalance the inventory mix to improve capacity and reduce costs • Retool 26 management processes to achieve market-savvy S&OP Unlike other books that focus on only supply chain strategies or S&OP or lean manufacturing, this book’s sophisticated approach unifies all three areas, and it’s the only one to explain how to operate in today’s on-demand environment.
