The managed flow of goods and information from raw material to final sale also known as a "supply chain" affects everything--from the U.S. gross domestic product to where you can buy your jeans. The nature of a company's supply chain has a significant effect on its success or failure--as in the success of Dell Computer's make-to-order system and the failure of General Motor's vertical integration during the 1998 United Auto Workers strike. Supply Chain Integration looks at this crucial component of business at a time when product design, manufacture, and delivery are changing radically and globally. This book explores the benefits of continuously improving the relationship between the firm, its suppliers, and its customers to ensure the highest added value. This book identifies the state-of-the-art developments that contribute to the success of vertical tiers of suppliers and relates these developments to the capabilities that small and medium-sized manufacturers must have to be viable participants in this system. Strategies for attaining these capabilities through manufacturing extension centers and other technical assistance providers at the national, state, and local level are suggested. This book identifies action steps for small and medium-sized manufacturers--the "seed corn" of business start-up and development--to improve supply chain management. The book examines supply chain models from consultant firms, universities, manufacturers, and associations. Topics include the roles of suppliers and other supply chain participants, the rise of outsourcing, the importance of information management, the natural tension between buyer and seller, sources of assistance to small and medium-sized firms, and a host of other issues. Supply Chain Integration will be of interest to industry policymakers, economists, researchers, business leaders, and forward-thinking executives.

With increased globalization and offshore sourcing, global supply chain management is becoming an important issue for many businesses as it involves a company's worldwide interests and suppliers rather than simply a local or national orientation. The storage systems significantly affect the level of quality of products, the customer’s service level, and the global logistic cost. The mission of warehousing systems design, control and optimization is to effectively ship products in the right place, at the right time, and in the right quantity (i.e. in any configuration) without any damages or alterations, and minimizing costs. Warehousing in the Global Supply Chain presents and discusses a set of models, tools and real applications, including a few case studies rarely presented with a sufficient detail by other literature, to illustrate the main challenges in warehousing activities. This includes all warehouse operations (from receiving to shipping), problems and issues (e.g. storage allocation, assignment, layout, vehicle routing) for industrial and service systems as parts of global supply chains. Advanced and effective solving methods are also illustrated and the discussed case studies help the reader to quickly apply the proposed models and techniques/algorithms. Warehousing in the Global Supply Chain is useful to managers and practitioners of industry and service sectors for the determination and modeling of the critical issues concerning warehousing systems planning and design. It is a valuable source of information for engineering students, doctoral and post-doctoral students, and researchers of academic institutions who are searching for advanced modeling approaches and solving techniques to complex logistic decision making problems.

Last year Gartner identified the 10 major forces that are actively reshaping the future of IT services and the outsourcing market*. Amongst the much hyped Cloud, Security and Consumerization were included the Value Chain and Componentization -- items that don’t get so much Press hype but, according to Gartner, are fundamental forces that should be addressed. A new title: The IT Factory describes operating within these forces by applying Supply Chain Management for IT Infrastructure Services: Using the SCOR Model. The IT Factory is the Solution to Value Chain and Componentization Issues Caspar Hunsche, CTO, Director of Research, Supply Chain Council, Inc. notes that ‘it’s been done before’: The processes of IT Value Chain and IT Componentization can deliver goods and services by using the same ‘Factory’ techniques that supply chains do. Brad Ellison - Manager, Global Data Centers - Intel® Corporation agrees noting “We have moved deliberately to a factory metaphor. We have stopped focusing just on what data centers store and are asking ourselves, ‘What do they output?’” It’s clear that IT departments need to get down to the Factory floor to gain the experience that has been ‘bread and butter’ thinking for Supply Chain disciplines for many years. Hans van Aken, a seasoned HP employee, with support from The Supply Chain Council, has used the Global Standard SCOR (Supply-Chain Operations Reference-model) to distil the experience of many Supply Chain experts to describe how businesses can implement IT Commoditisation and Value Chain using tried and tested techniques.
