Supply Chain Management Resource Webpage
"A comprehensive webpage for practitioners,
researchers and consultants in the area of Supply Chain Management"
Reviewed in Industrial Engineering
Solutions, June 1998 issue.
Why a Supply Chain Management Resource Webpage? Never has so
much technology and brainpower been applied to improving supply chain performance.
Point of sale scanners allow companies to capture the customer's request.
Electronic data interchange lets all stages of the supply chain understand
customer's requests and react by using flexible manufacturing, automated
warehousing, and rapid logistics. New concepts such as quick response,
efficient consumer response, accurate response, mass customization, lean
manufacturing, and agile manufacturing offer models for applying the new
technology to improve performance.
In our consulting business, we spend considerable time educating our
clients on what is best in the market; what has been tried; and what has
actually succeeded. The objective of this homepage is to provide selected
links to Supply Chain Management related topics, and promote the understanding
of what is meant by "Supply Chain Management."
