ќписание: Increasing customer needs, the globalization of markets and the evolution of e-commerce add to the complexity of logistic processes. In today's business, it is
well understood that an effective management of logistic processes is impossible without the use of computer-based tools and quantitative methods. This book presents in a systematic
ay quantitative approaches to distribution logistics and supply chain management.
The main orientation of the book is towards practical problem solving, and numerous case
studies and practical applications are presented. The topics covered include: supply chain management, revers logistics, e-commerce, facility location and network planning, vehicle
routing, warehousing, and inventory control.
ќписание: The complexity of distribution systems is augmented by various trends: globalization of the manufacturing industry, rising customer demands, and the reverse flows within closed-loop systems. In this light, the need for вАШadvancedвАЩ planning methods that are based on quantitative optimization is constantly increasing. This book takes up the challenges posed by these developments. In doing so, it presents recent results and case studies from a group of researchers that regularly meet at the IWDL (International Workshop on Distribution Logistics). The text covers the design of distribution networks, vehicle routing, warehousing and reverse logistics. It also contains a comprehensive review of more than 60 case studies in reverse logistics.
ќписание: New technologies are revolutionising the way manufacturing and supply chain management are implemented. These changes are delivering manufacturing firms the competitive advantage of a highly flexible and responsive supply chain and manufacturing system to ensure that they meet the high expectations of their customers, who, in today's economy, demand absolutely the best service, price, delivery time and product quality. To make e-manufacturing and supply chain technologies effective, integration is needed between various, often disparate systems. To understand why this is such an issue, one needs to understand what the different systems or system components do, their objectives, their specific focus areas and how they interact with other systems. It is also required to understand how these systems evolved to their current state, as the concepts used during the early development of systems and technology tend to remain in place throughout the life-cycle of the systems/technology. This book explores various standards, concepts and techniques used over the years to model systems and hierarchies in order to understand where they fit into the organization and supply chain. It looks at the specific system components and the ways in which they can be designed and graphically depicted for easy understanding by both information technology (IT) and non-IT personnel. Without a good implementation philosophy, very few systems add any real benefit to an organization, and for this reason the ways in which systems are implemented and installation projects managed are also explored and recommendations are made as to possible methods that have proven successful in the past. The human factor and how that impacts on system success are also addressed, as is the motivation for system investment and subsequent benefit measurement processes. Finally, the vendor/user supply/demand within the e-manufacturing domain is explored and a method is put forward that enables the reduction of vendor bias during the vendor selection process. The objective of this book is to provide the reader with a good understanding regarding the four critical factors (business/physical processes, systems supporting the processes, company personnel and company/personal performance measures) that influence the success of any e-manufacturing implementation, and the synchronization required between these factors. - Discover how to implement the flexible and responsive supply chain and manufacturing execution systems required for competitive and customer-focused manufacturing - Build a working knowledge of the latest plant automation, manufacturing execution systems (MES) and supply chain management (SCM) design techniques - Gain a fuller understanding of the four critical factors (business and physical processes, systems supporting the processes, company personnel, performance measurement) that influence the success of any e-manufacturing implementation, and how to evaluate and optimize all four factors
ќписание: In recent years, Supply Chain Management (SCM) has become one of the most widely discussed issues on top management`s agenda. One essential precondition for the implementation of SCM concepts are powerful information systems. Many manufacturing companies deploy the logistics modules of the SAP R/3 system. In 1997 SAP enlarged its focus beyond Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and started an SCM initiative, which resulted in the Advanced Planner and Optimizer (APO) system. Today, APO has become one of the main components of the mySAP.com solutions. This book describes the principles and methods of intra- and inter-company SCM with reference to Release 4.6 of the SAP R/3 and to Release 3.0 of the SAP APO system. It also discusses potential future developments of these widely used software systems. The final chapter of the book contains an annotated overview of the most valuable online resources dealing with SCM.
ќписание: Provides an understanding of supply chain planning and control techniques with topics including purchasing, manufacturing, warehouse, and logistics systems. This title also provides a managerial issues overview, a technical presentation related to the topic, company examples, and concluding principles.

ќписание: Lean manufacturing is a system that helps to reduce costs while improving performance and output quality. The techniques were initially developed in the automotive and engineering industries but are now being applied to a wide range of sectors including, increasingly, the food industry. The principle focus of lean manufacturing is to work smarter, not harder. Through careful measurement of factory processes, causes of poor performance are identified and addressed. A variety of management tools and techniques can be used to control the activities of the business and to deliver the product and profits required. This book presents the principles of lean manufacturing as they can be applied to food manufacturing. Other books on this topic are written at a higher level and tend to attempt to shoehorn the principles of the car and consumer electronics industries into places where they do not really fit. This is the first book to apply lean principles specifically in food industry settings, offering solutions which can alleviate pressures currently facing the industry.Used as a handbook for managers, including at team leader / shift manager level, the book guides the reader through the steps that must be taken in order to successfully implement lean systems. It explores the various strategies suitable for different sectors of the industry and the various relationships along the food supply chain. This information can then be used to sell proposed changes to the wider workforce and help junior and middle managers implement and maintain the new practices. The book is suitable as a companion to training and education courses.

ќписание: This text presents the basics of distribution logistics (DL) in both a qualitative and quantitative manner so as to reach out to a multitude of reader backgrounds. Devoid of solid quantitative books in the marketplace, this book fills a gap. The authors do not encourage the undiscriminating use of sophisticated models and algorithms to the detriment of intuition and common sense. The emphases throughout the book are on the variety and complexity of issues and sub problems surrounding DL and their limitations and scope of applicability. The context in which a firm operates, its strategic positioning, and the managerial levers that decision makers may act upon represent key discussions and provide a unified approach to the subject matter.
ќписание: Focuses on how to create business opportunities and reap savings by restructuring and updating ERP and CRM software as it integrates supply chain management and delivers various killer applications.
