Editorial Reviews

Review

"... To sum up, there should be a copy on the bookshelf of all engineers responsible for detailed planning of the Product Delivery Process (PDP). The Editors highlight the impressive gains reported by companies exploiting the potential of coordinating organizational units and integrating information flows and planning efforts along a supply chain. This publication is strong on coordination and planning. It is therefore recommended as an up-to-date source book for these particular aspects of SCM." International Journal of Production Research 2001/Vol. 39/13 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Supply Chain Management, Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP), and Advanced Planning Systems (APS) are important concepts in order to organize and optimize the flow of goods, materials, information and funds. This book, already in its fourth edition, gives a broad and up-to-date overview of the concepts underlying APS. Special emphasis is given to modeling supply chains and implementing APS successfully in industry. Understanding is enhanced by several case studies covering a wide range of industrial sectors. The fourth edition contains updated material, rewritten chapters and additional case studies.

I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the high quality and standard of the book, Supply Chain Management and Advanced Planning. It reflects state-of-the-art thinking as well as current views, and contains up-to-date case studies of supply chain management and advanced planning systems. There is no doubt that the authors are working at the cutting edge of the supply chain management field. They show intimate knowledge of practical advanced planning applications as well as implementation issues around a variety of commercially available software systems.
Recent information technology developments have changed modern manufacturing organizations dramatically. We have witnessed the introduction of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, such as SAP and BAAN, aimed at integrating internal processes in an organization. These systems cut across multiple functional areas and provide a corporate wide database with all the relevant data of an organization. Many believed that these systems would address all the problems and lead to drastic improvements of business performance. This focus on internal processes, however, was not sufficient since, in a sense, it was not able to cope with the exceptions and with the variability that confront organizations on a daily basis. State-of-the-art planning procedures, provided by Advanced Planning Systems (APS), are required to allow organizations to reduce the amount of exceptional situations. An APS exploits the environment created by ERP systems and this has created major breakthroughs in enterprise wide planning. The impact has spread wider to collaborative planning amongst supply chain partners.

This book will give every reader a very good view of the Supply Chain Management concepts. It will take the reader from the Strategic point of view, through the Demand Planning Systems to the Advance Planning Systems. A very good book to put every concept into a global perspective, with some case studies that will help the reader to make the transition from the theory to the pratical aspect of Supply Chain Information Systems.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Peter L. Boatman on June 24, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Any review of supply chain management in general has to begin with Michael Porter's 1985 (now available in a 1998 edition) best seller "Competitive Advantage." For software, one would begin with Christopher Koch's "The ABCs of Supply Chain Management" where he states "Supply chain management software is possibly the most fractured group of software applications on the planet. . . . No one has a complete package." and then move on to the EDIGuys "Supply Chain Information Systems" for specifics on the background, buzz, and hype. But, if you are interested in applying modelling and associated quantitative methods (Advanced Planning) to the supply chain management paradigm, then there is probably no better place to begin than Stadtler and Kilgers book. They lead you through concepts to implementation with six case studies from various industries. And, the supplementary material covering forecast methods, linear and mixed integer programming, genetic algorithms, and constraint programming is invaluable.
