Many manufacturing and distribution companies are moving from the traditional 'forecast push MRP' to demand-driven supply chain management (SCM). Demand-driven SCM is an 'end-to-end' supply chain planning and replenishment process that enables companies to achieve their planned service levels from up to half the average level of inventory and requiring significantly less throughput capacity - irrespective of the level of demand volatility or lead-time length. Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management is the go-to source for industry supply chain/operations executives and students. It describes the 'what, how and why' of the demand-driven SCM process. The key themes in the book are: what is demand-driven? why is demand-driven so effective? how to operate a demand-driven supply chain? and how to adopt the demand-driven process in your company? Readers can quickly grasp the essential concepts from one of numerous self-contained sections that present the book's key concepts from different perspectives. Online resources available include full-colour figures.

As a supply chain or operations professional, you face unprecedented challenges in delivering the agile, resilient, efficient supply chain your company needs. This indispensable 4-book package gives you unprecedented resources, best practices, tools, and case studies for managing each of these challenges. Global Macrotrends and Their Impact on Supply Chain Management shows how to manage supply and demand in the face of massively disruptive emerging societal, technological, geopolitical, and environmental macro trends. You’ll find a complete decision framework and practical tools, insights, and guidance for systematically mitigating new risks and building long-term competitive advantage. Step by step, you’ll walk through assessing and responding to population growth, migration, urbanization; socioeconomic change, global connectivity, environmental issues, geopolitics, growing scarcity, transportation congestion, aging infrastructure, and more. Next, Supply Chain Network Design helps you use strategic network design techniques to drive dramatic new savings throughout your supply chain. The authors, who are experts at IBM and Northwestern University, combine rigorous principles and practical applications, helping you optimize the right number, location, territory, and size of warehouses, plants, and production lines; and optimize product flow through even the most complex global supply chains. They help you manage tradeoffs such as cost vs. service level, improve operational decision-making through analytics; and re-optimize regularly for even greater savings. Then, Demand and Supply Integration shows how to implement world-class demand forecasting management, and effectively integrate it into comprehensive Demand and Supply Integration (DSI) processes. You’ll learn how to recognize failures of demand/supply integration, approach Demand Forecasting as a management process, and choose and apply the best forecasting techniques. You’ll discover how to thoroughly reflect market intelligence in forecasts; measure forecasting performance; implement advanced demand forecasting systems; manage Demand Reviews, and more.

Quantitative models and computer-based tools are essential for making decisions in today's business environment. These tools are of particular importance in the rapidly growing area of supply chain management. This volume is a unified effort to provide a systematic summary of the large variety of new issues being considered, the new set of models being developed, the new techniques for analysis, and the computational methods that have become available recently. The volume's objective is to provide a self-contained, sophisticated research summary - a snapshot at this point of time - in the area of Quantitative Models for Supply Chain Management. While there are some multi-disciplinary aspects of supply chain management not covered here, the Editors and their contributors have captured many important developments in this rapidly expanding field. The 26 chapters can be divided into six categories. Basic Concepts and Technical Material (Chapters 1-6). The chapters in this category focus on introducing basic concepts, providing mathematical background and validating algorithmic tools to solve operational problems in supply chains. Supply Contracts (Chapters 7-10). In this category, the primary focus is on design and evaluation of supply contracts between independent agents in the supply chain. Value of Information (Chapters 11-13). The chapters in this category explicitly model the effect of information on decision-making and on supply chain performance. Managing Product Variety (Chapters 16-19). The chapters in this category analyze the effects of product variety and the different strategies to manage it. International Operations (Chapters 20-22). The three chapters in this category provide an overview of research in the emerging area of International Operations. Conceptual Issues and New Challenges (Chapters 23-27).

This book aims to identify and describe the practical key components of demand driven supply chains, and based on these components, develops a structured and integrated assessment framework that companies can use to assess their current and desired future supply chain states in light of the Demand Driven Supply Chain (DDSC) concepts. Another contribution of the book is the structured framework developed to design a supply chain strategy, which will consider the DDSC assessment results as one of the key inputs, and will support the implementation of the opportunities identified during the assessment. The framework presented in this book was applied in different supply chain operations of a global CPG company to validate the methodology and formalize an action plan to allow these operations move towards a DDSC. Results show clear opportunities to improve supply chain operation and become more demand driven.

Integrative planning in supply chains is an essential field in logistics management. But still there are open questions especially in a long-term perspective: In order to align strategic decisions of several supply chain partners an integrated long-term demand planning process is necessary but in many industries sill mission. This would enable companies for example to co-ordinate their long-term investments in production facilities as well as transport and storage capacities and therefore increase overall efficiency in supply chains. This edition gives a very good outline about the basic problem, providing further an innovative stepwise approach to solve the integrated planning problem. The concept is matched with the business case 'BP' as a typical company and industry with influential long-term changes ahead. By this business example implementation the real life value of such planning instruments can be shown. This will motivate many companies and industries to transfer the concept to their specific environments in order to further optimize their supply chains in the future.
