Using strategic supply chain network design, companies can achieve dramatic savings from their supply chains. Now, experts at IBM and Northwestern University have brought together both the rigorous principles and the practical applications you need to master. You’ll learn how to use supply chain network design to select the right number, location, territory, and size of warehouses, plants, and production lines; and optimize the flow of all products through your supply chain even if extends around the globe. The authors present better ways to decide what to manufacture internally, where to make these products, which products to outsource, and which suppliers to use. They guide you in more effectively managing tradeoffs such as cost vs. service level, improving operational decision-making by integrating analytics throughout supply chain management; and re-optimizing regularly for even greater savings. Supply Chain Network Design combines best practices, the latest methods in optimization and analytics, and cutting-edge case studies: everything you need to maximize the value of supply chain network design.

Replete with examples, cases, and best practices. Emerging Trends in Global Supply Chain Management fully illuminates the game-changing issues supply chain decision-makers now face. Three seasoned practitioners provide state-of-the-art answers and insights into questions like: How do you manage supply and demand in a world marked by demographic and economic shifts that turn your supply and demand markets upside down? How do you secure the supplies you need to sustain and grow your business when resources are severely constrained? Focusing on emerging societal, technological, geopolitical, and environmental macro trends that will powerfully impact every supply chain, they present a complete decision framework for anticipating and solving tomorrow's supply chain problems. Decision-makers will find practical tools, insights, and guidance for systematically mitigating risks and building long-term supply chain-based competitive advantage.
