Description

Product Description

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. For all supply chain executives, managers, strategists, and analysts; and for all students, instructors, and researchers in advanced supply chain management and/or logistics courses.

From the Back Cover

“This book takes a very technical subject and makes it possible for managers and  students alike to understand all aspects of network design. The practical approach used in discussing topics throughout the book provides a clear and excellent framework for those seeking to learn more about the topic.”
—Dr. Mary C. Holcomb, Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management, University of Tennessee

“Supply chain management (SCM) is a rapidly growing area of study—and network design is one of the fastest growing areas within SCM. I have been a long-time  practitioner of network modeling, as a manager in business and as a consultant,  and I have covered the topic in university lectures. I still learned a great deal  about a subject I thought I knew thoroughly!”
—Bill Nickle, Principal, Nickle Consulting

 “…the authors draw on their extensive expertise as practitioners to provide valuable  insights into how to successfully execute a network design study.”
—Dr. Mike Hewitt, Kate Gleason College of Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology

“Supply Chain Network Design will help students, academics, and practitioners alike understand the importance of successfully designing and optimizing a global supply chain network, while also explaining in easy-to-understand steps how to make it happen.”
—John A. Caltagirone, Quinlan School of Business, Loyola University

This book provides a complete foundation for building tomorrow’s most complex global supply chain models and using them to  reduce costs and support business strategy. Drawing on their experience building and optimizing hundreds of supply chains, the authors thoroughly introduce each key  concept and its modern scientific foundations and demonstrate its use through realistic case studies.

The authors offer specific solutions for  a wide range of common challenges, including efficiently expanding a warehouse/plant network, managing the subtle interactions between capacity and service levels, and  leveraging differences in cost and mode between inbound and outbound transportation. They also guide you in nuts-and-bolts planning and data collection and answering real-world questions such as: How do you build an  effective supply chain modeling team? How do you quantify capacity? How accurate does your data need to be? How do you debug models and avoid common mistakes?

Using their techniques, many supply chain practitioners have reduced their costs by 5-15%—translating into tens of millions of dollars of savings. You can achieve comparable results—and this book is the place to start.

Use leading-edge network design techniques to:
•   Select the right number, location, and size of warehouses, plants, and production lines
•   Specify the right territories for each facility
•   Optimize flow of all products through the supply chain
•   Decide what to manufacture internally, where to make these products, which products to outsource, and which  suppliers to use
•   Manage crucial tradeoffs such as cost  versus service level
•   Integrate analytics more effectively throughout supply chain management
•   Optimize regularly for even greater savings

Includes case studies and exercises that can be used  with commercially available software.

I''ve done a lot of network-design work and consider myself to be an expert. Had I had this book from the start, I may have got to expert status a lot faster.

Note that while the authors (all from IBM) have extensive experience building software products to help you do supply-chain network optimization this is not a sales brochure for LogicNet. They lead you, step by step through the process, adding in complexity one layer at a time, until you have a very sophisticated model.

Managers who hope to become better buyers/consumers of network-design projects may want to skip the math sections and can do so without missing key points. For analysts actively involved in building optimization-models the mathematical formulations are extremely helpful. Even if you choose to build models with a software package that tries to hide the math from you, the guidance around data and the art of modeling is worth the price and the time to read it.

This book addresses practical problems in supply chain network design. The authors are experienced and provide very useful tips regarding data aggregation, "what-if" analysis, and methods to make the best use of your data as input for your model. This is a strategic-level type of modeling, so if you are dealing with operational-level problems this might not be your best choice. I personally enjoy strategic (and sometimes tactic) modeling, and I had a lot of fun reading this book. I highly recommend it.

I thought it was going to be a little more anecdotal and perhaps an easier read. I got a lot of this stuff when I was in business school at Carnegie Mellon. Wanted a real life follow on to the concepts but this wasn''t it.
