Supply Chain in Manufacturing Distribution & Transportation
Wydawnictwo: Taylor & Francis
This compilation of scholarly research work from academia and industry considers high-level production schedules, product sourcing, network alignment, distribution center layouts, transportation operations with stochastic demand, inventory planning, and day-to-day operations planning. The book is divided into three sections:
* Industrial and Service Applications of the Supply Chain
* Analytic Probabilistic Models in Supply Chain Problems
* Optimization Models of Supply Chain Problems
Because tactical and operational models rely on quality forecasts of demand, the text examines stochastic customer demand, coordination of supply chain functions, and solution algorithms. It reviews real-world business applications and case studies that illustrate the modeling solutions discussed.
