When you invest millions on new systems you don't want yesterday's solutions. You need a global view of end-to-end material, information, and financial flows. Managers today have the same concerns managers had last year, 10 years ago, or 50 years ago: products, markets, people and skills operations, and finance. New supply chain management processes give managers a hierarchy to the tasks they must perform to deal with these issues. Containing hundreds of tips and insights, the Handbook of Supply Chain Management describes the evolution of supply chain management. It explores how the techniques now popular in strategic planning and operations improvement will find new applications in managing supply chains. The author emphasizes changing supply chains rather than merely maintaining them. He uses case studies to illustrate the application of these techniques.

New technologies are revolutionising the way manufacturing and supply chain management are implemented. These changes are delivering manufacturing firms the competitive advantage of a highly flexible and responsive supply chain and manufacturing system to ensure that they meet the high expectations of their customers, who, in today's economy, demand absolutely the best service, price, delivery time and product quality. To make e-manufacturing and supply chain technologies effective, integration is needed between various, often disparate systems. To understand why this is such an issue, one needs to understand what the different systems or system components do, their objectives, their specific focus areas and how they interact with other systems. It is also required to understand how these systems evolved to their current state, as the concepts used during the early development of systems and technology tend to remain in place throughout the life-cycle of the systems/technology. This book explores various standards, concepts and techniques used over the years to model systems and hierarchies in order to understand where they fit into the organization and supply chain. It looks at the specific system components and the ways in which they can be designed and graphically depicted for easy understanding by both information technology (IT) and non-IT personnel. Without a good implementation philosophy, very few systems add any real benefit to an organization, and for this reason the ways in which systems are implemented and installation projects managed are also explored and recommendations are made as to possible methods that have proven successful in the past. The human factor and how that impacts on system success are also addressed, as is the motivation for system investment and subsequent benefit measurement processes. Finally, the vendor/user supply/demand within the e-manufacturing domain is explored and a method is put forward that enables the reduction of vendor bias during the vendor selection process. The objective of this book is to provide the reader with a good understanding regarding the four critical factors (business/physical processes, systems supporting the processes, company personnel and company/personal performance measures) that influence the success of any e-manufacturing implementation, and the synchronization required between these factors. · Discover how to implement the flexible and responsive supply chain and manufacturing execution systems required for competitive and customer-focused manufacturing · Build a working knowledge of the latest plant automation, manufacturing execution systems (MES) and supply chain management (SCM) design techniques · Gain a fuller understanding of the four critical factors (business and physical processes, systems supporting the processes, company personnel, performance measurement) that influence the success of any e-manufacturing implementation, and how to evaluate and optimize all four factors

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a coordinated approach to information management to improve customer service and productivity, and effectively manage costs and inventories. In today's highly competitive environment, businesses need effective forecasting, planning and scheduling, and customer service management. They need to hear the "voice of the customer" and design products and services to deliver customer satisfaction. An integrated system of information that treats the functional and different business units of a firm as a cohesive whole would help businesses and organizations alike to improve productivity and quality, and remain competitive.This book develops a scholarly and practical view of ERP by strategizing ERP. It views the failures of ERP projects primarily from poor implementation strategies and the lack of involvement of people - the most important asset of any organization. It expands the discussion on ERP by exploring how ERP could improve the efficiency of all business processes. It looks specifically into the functions, and relations of ERP to effective Supply Chain Management (SCM), collaborative forecasting and planning, customer relationship management, product life cycle management, e-procurement and e-business operations.This book is not about ERP software development but rather about effective management of ERP-based operations and supply chain management systems. It is developed as a foundation or basic book on ERP to be used primarily for teaching introductory classes on ERP and for introducing practicing managers to the basics of ERP/SCM and the role of ERP/SCM in achieving organizational effectiveness and competitiveness. It will serve as a good resource for managers of organizations thinking about adopting ERP/SCM software or training programs.
