Rarely do you have the opportunity to see across the entire supply chain but you will need to understand the enterprise before implementing a new process, technology, or simply being effective. This is a great book to learn or brush up on "must know" fundamentals... The author has real-life experience implementing complex solutions and driving change in large organizations. This is a must read if you need to learn about a new supply chain subject area or starting a new business project that touches the supply chain.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent handbook December 11, 2009
Have you ever played SimCity? I used to play it a lot, and maybe that's why I fell for this book, because the cover picture looks exactly like a scene from SimCity. In some ways this book really is very "Sim"-like focusing on the nitty-gritty details of operations and logistics, the flows of ins and outs.

First, the books covers all there is to know about supply chains, it is also an excellent reference, with easy to navigate contents. Second, it contains an index that explains all the acronyms used in the book, e.g. COGS, OUTL, CTP, BOR to mention but a few. Third, there is an appendix on important issues such as ERP, RFID and cross-docking, emerging themes such as green supply chains, commonly used EDI codes and International Commercial Terms. In sum, it is an excellent supply chain handbook.

This is a book written by and for the supply chain industry. Period. It's an excellent book for the professional, but not for the academic. That said, as an academic with little (no) hands-on supply chain experience this is an excellent book for understanding how supply chains work in real life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book on supply chain! June 15, 2009
By R. Hill
The author has done an absolutely fantastic job in writing this book! The book is written for anyone who wants to understand what the supply chain is and what it can do for your company.

This book is arranged logically, with an introductory chapter followed by the scope of the supply chain. The author continues with three chapters on supply chain planning, then a section on supply chain execution (four chapters), and a final section (two chapters) on supply chain collaboration.

The appendices are extremely useful, covering various supply chain technologies, commonly used EDI codes, and incoterms. This is definitely a "must-have" book for anyone associated with supply chain or anyone who wants to know more the supply chain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview on Supply Chain Management October 21, 2011
After a couple years of searching I finally found a great reference book for supply chain management. This book is easy to read and presents fundamental concepts in a clear and logical flow. The short chapters are deep enough to explain yet brief enough to maintain simplicity.

If you're learning about supply chain management, get this book.
If you work in supply chain management and want a broader perspective, get this book.
