Synopsis
Designing and Managing the Supply Chain, 3/eprovides state-of-the-art models, concepts, and solution methods that are important for the design, control, operation, and management of supply chain systems. In particular, the authors attempt to convey the intuition behind many key supply chain concepts and to provide simple techniques that can be used to analyze various aspects of the supply chain. Topical coverage reflects the authors' desire to introduce students to those aspects of supply chain management that are critical to the success of a business. Although many essential supply chain management issues are interrelated, the authors strive to make each chapter as self-contained as possible, so that the reader can refer directly to chapters covering topics of interest. Each chapter utilizes numerous case studies and examples, and mathematical and technical sections can be skipped without loss of continuity. The 3rd edition represents a substantial revision. While the structure and philosophy were kept intact, the authors placed an increasing importance on finding or developing effective frameworks that illustrate many important supply chain issues. At the same time, motivated by new developments in industry, they added material on a variety of topics new to the book while increasing the coverage of others.

Misleading title.

Created: 06/03/09
The book does not tell how to design supply chains. Managing involves people, but the book does not tell how people manage supply chain. This is because the writers do not have solid and consistent framework for what supply chain is all about.

Supply chain cannot be designed, it is the result of business or corporate strategy. Managing supply chain involve all functions across firms. How do the people of all functions works across firms tells the truth of manging supply chains.

Indian edition

Created: 06/03/08
I bought this book for an MBA class. It is an Indian edition. The main case studies in the book are the same as the US edition, but many small examples are about indian companies and the currency used is different. Other than that I think the book is a good value.
