    ISBN: 9781292093567
    Edition: 6th Edition

    Supply Chain Management is the Recommended Reading for 'Improving the competitiveness of supply chains' (AD3), is one of the five recommendations for 'Supply chain diligence' (PD4), and is suggested other reading for 'Operations management in supply chains' (AD6).

    The Sixth Edition weaves in compelling case study examples, providing students with clear insight into how good supply chain management offers a competitive advantage. On the flip side, students also learn the dangers of poor supply chain management, and how it can damage an organization’s overall health and performance. 

    Using a strategic framework, students are guided through all of the key drivers of supply chain performance, including facilities, inventory, transportation, information, sourcing, and pricing.  

    By the end of the book, students will walk away with a deep understanding of supply chains and a firm grasp on the practical managerial levers to pull in order to improve supply chain performance.
