about this item
The book describes in practical terms how to run an excellent Supply Chain. One which delivers more than the expected cost, quality and delivery from suppliers. The need for integration between commercial, materials management and distribution parts of the supply chain is explained in terms of information flow, systems integration and the way in which people work together and form teams. The practical approaches discussed are drawn from nearly 30 years work experience and are described from the perspective of a Supply Chain manger. The book applies directly to Supply Chains involving a physical product – manufactured internally or outsourced, or some type of physical operation such as oilfield services.
