About the book
The traditional linear supply chain is no longer fit for purpose, and organizations must redesign their supply chains to become more customer-driven, agile, resilient and sustainable.
Supply Chain Network Design shows how to design intelligent, agile supply chain networks in the age of geopolitical disruptions, fast-paced technological innovation and drive for more sustainable business. It outlines how to incorporate international relations and a global perspective into supply chain planning and actions and how to embed ESG and circular economy goals. It surveys the rapidly evolving technology landscape and how it impacts some companies and provides a competitive advantage to others. It also explores how to harness technologies such as robotic process automation, AI and machine-driven intelligence and the evolution of forecasting to demand sensing to enhance network design.
Taking a global perspective, Supply Chain Network Design is supported by practical cases and examples and provides a consumer-driven lens that will help organizations evolve their networks from a traditional B2B to a B2B2C workflow. Covering both lessons learned and how to move forward, this will be an must-read for supply chain, logistics and distribution leaders, managers and analysts.
