Supply Chain Strategy
& Operations

 

As companies compete as supply chains rather than individual companies, their managements face new challenges. The articles and press releases below describe the challenges and the necessary responses. The articles buttress the theme that Supply Chain Management (SCM) needs to be a strategic initiative, coordinated across its component activities such as manufacturing, distribution, and purchasing.

Improvement in operations can take many forms. Articles and press releases in this section address new product & process development (NPPD), quality, reengineering, and employee empowerment through technology.

Several articles are published under the imprints of CRC Press. St. Lucie Press and APICS also co-published The Handbook of Supply Chain Management in which several of these articles appear as chapters.
