Description

Using strategic supply chain network design, companies can drive consistent dramatic savings throughout their global supply chains. Now, logistics experts at IBM and Northwestern University have brought together both the rigorous principles and the practical applications supply chain designers need to master to improve the flow of physical products across the globe. Readers learn how to use network design techniques to:
  • Select the right number, location, and size of warehouses, plants, and production lines
  • Specify territories associated with each facility
  • Optimize flow of all products through the supply chain
  • Decide what to manufacture internally, where to make these products, which products to outsource, and which suppliers to use
  • Manage tradeoffs such as cost vs. service level
  • More effectively integrate analytics throughout supply chain management, optimizing regularly for even greater savings
This book brings together industry best practices, expert methods in logistics, optimization and analytics, and cutting-edge, illustrative case studies: everything professionals need to maximize the value of global supply chain network design and modeling.
