Abstract:

"While this text's original structure and philosophy have been kept intact, in this edition the authors place an increasing importance on finding or developing effective frameworks that illustrate today's important supply chain issues. At the same time, motivated by new industry developments, they have added new material on a variety of topics, while increasing the coverage of others. Additionally, the authors continue to provide state-of-the-art models, concepts, and solution methods that are important for the design, control, operation, and management of supply chain systems."--Jacket.
