Book News Annotation:
This text brings the supply chain approach to the forefront as an important concept in understanding contemporary logistics management. Coverage includes an overview of supply chain management, processes associated with logistics and supply chain management, and strategic issues for logistics and supply chains. This seventh edition reflects the growth in strategic value and the increasing importance of its relationship to other functional areas, with new material on demand management, performance measurement, and financial analysis. The publisher dissembles: this book carries a copyright of 2003, yet it is being made available in the first quarter of 2002. Coyle is professor emeritus of business administration and director of corporate relations for the Center for Supply Chain Research at Pennsylvania State University.
