Supply Chain Strategy
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
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.
