Supply Chain Engineering considers how modern production and operations management techniques can respond to the pressures of the competitive global marketplace. It presents a comprehensive analysis of concepts and models related to outsourcing, dynamic pricing, inventory management, RFID, and flexible and re-configurable manufacturing systems, as well as real-time assignment and scheduling processes. A significant part is also devoted to lean manufacturing, line balancing, facility layout and warehousing techniques. Explanations are based on examples and detailed algorithms while discarding complex and unnecessary theoretical minutiae. All examples have been carefully selected from an industrial application angle. This book is written for students and professors in industrial and systems engineering, management science, operations management and business. It is also an informative reference for managers looking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their production systems.

The present economic and social environment has given rise to new situations within which companies must operate. As a first example, the globalization of the economy and the need for performance has led companies to outsource and then to operate inside networks of enterprises such as supply chains or virtual enterprises. A second instance is related to environmental issues. The statement about the impact of ind- trial activities on the environment has led companies to revise processes, to save - ergy, to optimize transportation.... A last example relates to knowledge. Knowledge is considered today to be one of the main assets of a company. How to capitalize, to manage, to reuse it for the benefit of the company is an important current issue. The three examples above have no direct links. However, each of them constitutes a challenge that companies have to face today. This book brings together the opinions of several leading researchers from all around the world. Together they try to develop new approaches and find answers to those challenges. Through the individual ch- ters of this book, the authors present their understanding of the different challenges, the concepts on which they are working, the approaches they are developing and the tools they propose. The book is composed of six parts; each one focuses on a specific theme and is subdivided into subtopics.

Boyer/Verma's breakthrough text meets today's student and instructor's needs and redefines the marketplace. Their text is briefer than most, taking all of the vital core concepts and building upon them with current and fresh examples. The authors understand the importance of striking a balance by creating a book that does an even better job at covering the core concepts while also providing customers with a new product that fully addresses and approaches this course area from today's teaching and learning perspectives and actual business practices. The three unifying themes throughout the book are Strategy, Global Supply Chain, and Service Operations. Strategy will serve as an overarching framework and will be used in each chapter to present students with an alternative approach to specific challenges. The authors uses examples from non-US companies and/or organizations in each chapter to incorporate Service Operations in the book. They also show that even some of the largest manufacturing companies today have extensive service activities such as customer support and product development. The Global Supply Chain theme will allow students to see how products move through different companies and countries with Boyer/Verma's use of real world examples throughout his text. In addition the robust Cnow course allows instructors and students to go beyond the printed text to get the most from this exciting operations management program.

Behavioral Operations Management has been identified in the last years as one of the most promising emerging fields in Operations Management. Behavioral Issues in Operations Management explains and examines up-to-date research in this field, which works to analyze the impact of human behavior on the management of complex operating systems. A collection of studies from leading scholars presents different methodologies and approaches, supported by real data and case studies. Issues such as building trust and strong cooperative relationships with suppliers, enhancing motivation and designing proper incentives for stimulating more effective decision maker behaviours are considered. The main decision-making processes affected by behavioral issues are also analyzed with a focus on new product development, logistics, and supply chain integration. The broad coverage of methodologies and practical implications makes Behavioral Issues in Operations Management an ideal reference for both researchers developing new topics such as NK fitness landscapes and managers with an interest in behavioral management operations.

The logistician plays a critical role in the growth of his or her company – in this third edition of Essentials of Logistics, the conceptual framework in which all the stakes and themes of logistics is systematically analyzed, with a strong focus on the role of the supply chain. Indeed, many elements are critical to the successful logistical strategy: customer relation management, interactive information support, production optimization and process development, vision, strategy and operations management, and human resources and resource allocation. Growing out of a successful course given by the International Institute for the Management of Logistics (IML) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), in Lausanne, and by the Ecole des Ponts-ParisTech (ENPC), the purpose of this book is to present a methodology allowing the reader to understand and act based on the critical factors embedded in the design of strategy. Concepts are thus combined with practical examples. Transversal vision and detailed case studies highlight the main themes of modern logistics and daily preoccupations of logisticians. The book is addressed to all professionals of logistics: managers, planners and engineers; as well as to graduate students specializing in the field.

Lean Logistics

Methodisches Vorgehen und praktische Anwendung in der Automobilindustrie

Als größter Wirtschaftszweig der deutschen Industrie versucht gerade die Automobilindustrie in den letzten Jahren verstärkt der Volatilität der Märkte mit der Einführung von schlanken Produktionssystemen zu begegnen. Die Konzentration auf Wertschöpfung verbunden mit der konsequenten Vermeidung von Verschwendung wird dabei vor allem in produzierenden Bereichen seit längerer Zeit mit höchster Konsequenz verfolgt. Dies führt zu erhöhten Anforderungen an die Logistik, die auch unter den neuen Rahmenbedingungen sowohl effektiv als auch effizient arbeiten muss. Das methodische Vorgehen, aber auch die praktische Anwendung schlanker Logistiksysteme sind heute jedoch noch weit weniger entwickelt als im Bereich Lean Production, auch wenn eine leistungsstarke und flexible Logistik sich in den letzten Jahren als entscheidender Wettbewerbsvorteil weltweit agierender Wertschöpfungsnetzwerke abzeichnet. Im Forschungsprojekt LEAN:log wurde am Lehrstuhl für Fördertechnik Materialfluss Logistik der TU München gemeinsam mit Projektpartnern ausgewählter Unternehmen eine strukturierte und praxistaugliche Herangehensweise zur Umsetzung schlanker Logistikprozesse entwickelt. Das so entstandene Phasenmodell unterstützt Unternehmen von der ersten Idee bis zum unternehmensweiten kontinuierlichen Verbesserungsprozess, indem es detailliert aufschlüsselt, wann im Rahmen einer Transformation zu Lean Logistics welche Veränderungsschritte durchgeführt werden sollten, wie konkret vorgegangen werden muss, welche Methoden und Werkzeuge zur Hilfe genommen werden können und welche Menschen im Unternehmen wann einzubinden sind. Ziel dieses Buches ist es, den Unternehmen, die sich auf den Weg machen möchten, ihre Logistik „lean“ zu gestalten, ein erprobtes Vorgehen an die Hand zu geben, an dem sie sich orientieren können. So können die richtigen Veränderungen zum richtigen Zeitpunkt sowie in einer strukturierten und standardisierten Weise angestoßen werden, um Lean Logistics geradliniger, schneller und nachhaltiger im Unternehmen zu verankern. In diesem Buch berichten 21 Autoren von den spezifischen Herausforderungen und Hürden in allen Phasen einer Lean-Einführung und beleuchten dabei die Schwerpunkte Prozesse, Technik und Mensch.
