Notable changes occurring in the global marketplace since the publication of the first three editions of this book (1982, 1987, and 1993) have included e-commerce and widespread use of the Internet, growth of supply chain management, a continued explosion of computer and information technology worldwide, development of 24-hour markets with many organizations operating worldwide, and a continued corporate emphasis on quality and customer satisfaction. Trade agreements such as North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), European Union, ASEAN and Mercosur have enabled corporations to implement regional, if not entirely global, logistics strategies. The fourth edition of Strategic Logistics Management has been significantly expanded to reflect these and the many other changes that have occurred, as well as to include state-of-the-art logistics information and technology. The basic tenets of the previous editions have been retained, but new material has been added to make the book more managerial, integrative, and "cutting edge." Strategic Logistics Management is still the only text that takes a marketing orientation and views the subject from a customer satisfaction perspective. While emphasizing the marketing aspects of logistics, it integrates all of the functional areas of the business as well as incorporating logistics into supply chain management. This book has been extensively revised and updated in the areas of technology, global coverage, and transportation. This book features brand new chapters on Supply Chain Management (Ch 2) and Measuring and Selling the Value of Logistics (Ch 17).

At last, here is what logistics researchers have been waiting for: a book that comprehensively encapsulates for the first time the fundamentals of modeling Logistic Operating Curves for production and storage processes. The text includes information on how they can be derived and calculated based on standard operating data. In doing so, the authors clearly demonstrate the mutual dependencies between the often contradictory logistic objectives, i.e. on the one hand low throughput times and high delivery reliability and on the other hand low WIP levels and high rates of utilization. Moreover, they also explain how these objectives can be improved using the Logistic Operating Curve Theory and why this method thus provides an interesting alternative to simulations.

FREE BONUS Included "How to be a better leader?" Supply Chain Management The supply chain is not a new concept for economists. The idea of the supply chain is a basic one that has permeated economic systems since the earliest days of trade and commerce. It is simply a term referring to the collection of businesses or individuals responsible for transforming raw materials into products and then getting those products into the hands of consumers. Though it may be obvious to some, it is important to remember that supply chains exist whether or not they are managed-it is a term that refers to the processes necessary to turn raw materials into a product and distribute them to customers. The difference in the modern era is not that supply chains have been invented but that they have become a much more complicated proposition, given the expansion of the international economy that's been made possible by the rise of the internet and globalization. Whereas in the past businesses worked with mainly local or regional suppliers and factories, the door is now opened for a company in the United States to own a factory in India and a warehouse in Japan-all without having ever stepped foot outside their city. The customer end of the supply chain has been similarly opened up. Shopping on the internet allows anyone, anywhere to find and buy from your company-a double-edged sword that lets you expand your reach even as a small business but also increases the competition presented by other small businesses everywhere in the world.

Incorporating the elements that made previous editions so popular with students and professors, the fourth edition reflects the expansion of the role of supply chain management to include all areas of industry and all objects in the product life cycle. New in the Fourth Edition: Assessing the economic value added of supply chain initiatives Local content regulations and tariff orientation in a supply chain Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in a global supply chain Facility location planning (expanded) Sustainable supply chains Supply chain risk management Information management Each chapter includes summaries, keywords, cases, and exercises.

Covering all of the critical details in this area, the book equips students for tackling the logistics, planning, and managerial challenges they’ll most certainly have to face.

An authoritative, quantitative approach to supply chain management Addressing the need for the study of supply chain management to evolve at the same pace as it's real-world practice, Fundamentals of Supply Chain Theory presents the methodology and foundations of the topic and also demonstrates how recent developments build upon classic models. The authors focus on strategic and tactical aspects of supply chain management, covering a broad range of topics from forecasting, inventory management, and facility location to process flexibility, contracting, and auctions. Key mathematical models for optimizing the design, operation, and evaluation of supply chains are presented as well as models currently emerging from the research frontier. Following a thorough introduction, the book delves into a discussion of centralized models, including: Forecasting and demand modeling Deterministic inventory models Stochastic inventory models Multi-Echelon inventory models Processes for dealing with uncertainty in inventory optimization and facility location Facility location models Process flexibility In addition, the authors present decentralized models that involve multiple parties with independent, conflicting objectives, covering topics such as: The bullwhip effect Supply chain contracts Auctions Each chapter concludes with a set of problems that challenge readers to understand, interpret, and extend the discussed models and algorithms. In addition, extensive appendices provide guidance on writing proofs and also outline helpful formulas related to probability theory, calculus, and algebra. Extensively class-tested to ensure an easy-to-follow presentation, Fundamentals of Supply Chain Theory is a suitable book for business and engineering courses on supply chain management at the graduate level. The book also serves as an authoritative reference for academics and practitioners working in the areas of operations research, business, management science, and industrial engineering.
