Quantitative Methods in Supply Chain Management presents some of the most important methods and tools available for modeling and solving problems arising in the context of supply chain management. In the context of this book, “solving problems” usually means designing efficient algorithms for obtaining high-quality solutions. The first chapter is an extensive optimization review covering continuous unconstrained and constrained linear and nonlinear optimization algorithms, as well as dynamic programming and discrete optimization exact methods and heuristics. The second chapter presents time-series forecasting methods together with prediction market techniques for demand forecasting of new products and services. The third chapter details models and algorithms for planning and scheduling with an emphasis on production planning and personnel scheduling. The fourth chapter presents deterministic and stochastic models for inventory control with a detailed analysis on periodic review systems and algorithmic development for optimal control of such systems. The fifth chapter discusses models and algorithms for location/allocation problems arising in supply chain management, and transportation problems arising in distribution management in particular, such as the vehicle routing problem and others. The sixth and final chapter presents a short list of new trends in supply chain management with a discussion of the related challenges that each new trend might bring along in the immediate to near future. Overall, Quantitative Methods in Supply Chain Management may be of particular interest to students and researchers in the fields of supply chain management, operations management, operations research, industrial engineering, and computer science.

From the Foreword of the First Edition of Integral Logistics Management: Operations and Supply Chain Management Within and Across Companies: "Changes in the world outside the company alter the way that we look at problems and priorities in the company itself.

Incorporating the elements that made previous editions so popular with students and professors, the fourth edition reflects the expansion of the role of supply chain management to include all areas of industry and all objects in the product life cycle. New in the Fourth Edition: Assessing the economic value added of supply chain initiatives Local content regulations and tariff orientation in a supply chain Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in a global supply chain Facility location planning (expanded) Sustainable supply chains Supply chain risk management Information management Each chapter includes summaries, keywords, cases, and exercises. Definitions of key concepts and terms are boxed for emphasis and important principles, examples, points to remember, prescribed procedures, steps of a technique or solutions for selected scenarios and exercises are highlighted with a gray background. Additional interactive Macromedia Flash elements are made available for download from the book’s companion website. Magic formulas, catchwords, and simplifying theories do not stand much of a chance in logistics, operations and supply chain management. The complex reality of day-to-day operation of companies in industry and the service sector demands highly diligent detailed work. Covering all of the critical details in this area, the book equips students for tackling the logistics, planning, and managerial challenges they’ll most certainly have to face.

One of the fast growing elements of the Internet is electronic commerce, which refers to the use of electronic means to conduct business transactions within or across business entities. Nearly 80 percent of all Fortune 500 companies have been doing their core business through the Internet. Many issues, and societal implications of electronic commerce, are the subjects of recent research. A supply chain consists of all the entities and activities that enable the production, distribution, and delivery of products and services to consumers. Research in designing and managing supply chains has rapidly expanded during the last decade. In addition, increased and accessible computing power and modeling capabilities have spurred this growth, enabling researchers to simultaneously consider the many interrelated variables and decisions of a supply chain in a single tractable model.
