520 _aThe text provides state-of-the-art models, concepts, and solution methods that are important for the design, control, operation, and management of supply chain systems. Although many essential supply chain management issues are interrelated, the authors strive to make each chapter as self-contained as possible, so that the reader can refer directly to chapters covering topics of interest. Each chapter utilizes case studies and examples to illustrate the concepts. While the structure and philosophy of the earlier editions is kept intact, the authors place an increasing importance on finding or developing effective frameworks that illustrate many important supply chain issues in this edition. In addition, this edition lays a special emphasis on supply chain issues in the Indian context. Many new examples and cases from Indian supply chains are included.
