Risk management has become an essential issue in supply chain management, from the modeling of the decision maker's risk preference, and the studies on uncertain elements such as demand, supply, price, lead time, etc., to the consideration of more practical background including cash flow constraints, inventory financing and delayed cash payment. In this new volume, the authors provide a framework to study the interaction of various factors related to risk and their influence on supply chain management. The scope of areas covered includes operations management, decision analysis, and business administration. This book focuses on several key issues of risk management in supply chains. Specifically, an analysis framework is presented for studying the supplier selection problem and identifying the optimal sourcing strategy in a one-retailer two-suppliers supply chain with random yields. The optimal sourcing strategy of a retailer and the pricing strategies of two suppliers under an environment of supply disruption are investigated. Besides, the authors study the dynamic inventory control problems with cash flow constraints, financing decisions as well as delayed cash payment. In addition, originating from the annual international iron ore price negotiation, the authors model the bargaining process to deal with the risk of wholesale price in the game analysis context. Within the three perspectives of risk management in supply chains, the modeling of decision maker's risk preference has been extensively studied and many results have been obtained to guide the practice. However, the analysis on the other two kinds of topics is still in its infancy, and needs more efforts from academia. It is thus the ambition and innovation for this book to contribute on risk management in supply chains in the following ways: (1) characterizing the explicit sourcing strategy (i.e., single sourcing or dual sourcing) to deal with supply disruption risk; (2) introducing the concepts of financial risk measurement by incorporating cash flow constraints, inventory financing and delayed cash payment into inventory management models; and (3) providing insights for the iron ore price negotiation to help steel manufacturers handle the risk of price increase.

The growing power being exercised by today’s consumer is causing significant paradigm shifts away from traditional marketing. This is leading to a whole new take on the structure and functioning of supply chain management (SCM). It’s no longer so much about improving the manufacturing process as it is improving the point and speed of contact and the continued interaction that you have with your customer. The Intimate Supply Chain: Leveraging the Supply Chain to Manage the Customer Experience explores how SCM can assist companies to grow and prosper in the new global economy. It focuses on what the customer wants from the supply chain and how organizations must restructure their outdated business models to meet their customer’s needs. Covering this dramatic shift in customer management, David Ross, bestselling author and recognized industry expert, demonstrates how to design and maintain an efficient and up-to-date delivery channel, showcasing the methods and technologies needed to adapt to the evolving, demand-driven market. Exceptionally practical in his approach, Ross provides a new perspective that requires a broader mindset about the structure and functioning of SCM. He explains how effective management must start with the aim of getting personal with customers in order to bring total value to their shopping experience. Rather than concentrate on a range of products, this work defines a roadmap that will lead to increased empathy for your customers so that you will be able to provide them with unbeatable and readily recognizable value. When properly traveled, you will discover that it is a roadmap to increased profitability and market share.

This volume provides an introduction to the current debates within construction management thinking about how to improve corporate performance by the use of alterative ways of managing buyer and supplier relationships in construction supply chains and markets. It introduces the relationship marketing and partnership sourcing schools of thinking about collaborative ways of improving corporate performance through more collaborative ways of working between buyers and suppliers. This approach is contrasted with the power and leverage perspective. This later school argues that collaboration can only be implemented successfully under certain power regime circumstances and that corporate performance can only be improved if buyers and/or suppliers are aware of the full range of sourcing and relationship management options available to both parties in exchange relationships. The discussion is informed by 16 detailed case studies of alternative forms of proactive and reactive relationship management in construction, with very different win or lose outcomes. These reveal that, while some participants in construction supply chains and markets do adopt all of the major sourcing approaches available to them, this does not mean that any one approach to construction management is necessarily superior to others. There are many examples here of poor relationship management whether proactive collaborative or more reactive arms-length ways of working are adopted.

Unter dem Aspekt der Kostensenkung durch Mass Customization analysiert Christof M. Stotko die theoretischen Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten der Kundenintegration in Vertrieb und Fertigung. Seine Befragung von 105 deutschen Herstellern von Werkzeugmaschinen zeigt, dass diese Unternehmen die Kundenintegration nicht ausreichend nutzen, um Kostenvorteile in Vertrieb und Fertigung zu erzielen, und dass vor allem die Möglichkeiten, die die elektronischen Medien bieten, nahezu ignoriert werden.
