Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With an emphasis on modeling techniques, Jeremy Shapiro's MODELING THE SUPPLY CHAIN is the perfect tool for courses in supply chain management or for professional managers who seek better analytical tools for managing their supply chains, information technologists who are responsible for developing and/or maintaining such tools, and consultants who conduct supply chain studies using models. Shapiro examines in detail the roles of data, models, and modeling systems in helping companies improve the management of their supply chains. The focus is on optimization models based on linear and mixed integer programming. The complementary role played by descriptive models in developing data inputs for optimization models is thoroughly reviewed. Using numerous applications, Shapiro clearly illustrates that when properly implemented, these methodologies can create accurate and comprehensive models of great practical value. The book also shows how competitive advantage in supply chain management can be most fully realized by developing and applying optimization modeling systems.

Book News Annotation:

In this textbook, Shapiro (management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) describes how models can be effectively constructed and applied to supply chain planning problems. His aim is to provide students, managers, and analysts with a discussion that brings together qualitative and quantitative thinking and integrates concepts from a variety of disciplines. He discusses developments in information technology that created an interest in integrated supply chain modeling and management, and specific models, applications, and subjects important to future study. This edition includes updates and expanded material on ERP and e-commerce systems and the supply chain decision database; new chapters on descriptive models, stochastic programming models, and those that extend optimization; and new material on combining simulation and optimization. Exercises have been expanded, as has the website.

Synopsis:

Supply chains don't manage themselves, although managers sometimes wish they did. For everything you'll need to know about analyzing supply chains, you'll need MODELING THE SUPPLY CHAIN. By using models to analyze the supply chain, you can quickly and effectively find ways to optimize its performance. And because this supply chain textbook is loaded with clear illustrations and practical study tools, this is the textbook that will help you be effective during test times as well.

About the Author

Jeremy Shapiro is a professor emeritus in the Sloan School of Management at MIT. For nine years he served as the co-director of MIT's Operations Research Center. Previously, he was employed by Procter and Gamble, Hughes Aircraft Company, and the Port of New York Authority.
