Supply Chain Management is essential for most, if not all, businesses. Competitive Supply Chains uniquely focuses on European and Asian companies, which have found innovative ways of orchestrating effective systems. It not only promotes designing streamlined, simplified, and robust processes, but also encourages devising economic incentives to align the divergent interests of supply chain players. In response to the fact that in developed countries the service sector has become the largest contributor to GDP, the author discusses the capacity and resource management problems in service supply chains. This new edition builds upon the ideas explored by the author in Competitive Supply Chains (2007), featuring new content and analysis.
