About the book

Using e-business technologies to manage supply chains increases the efficiency of logistics, production, distribution and other related activities. E-Business and Supply Chain Integration explains how a number of tools can be integrated to produce an e-supply chain, with the overall aim of higher productivity.

This essential book examines theory and bona fide cases and examples to illustrate how the integration of e-business with supply chains is largely neglected and poorly managed. Dr Bak assesses the impact of e-business on supply chain management in numerous different organizations, such as Higher Education institutions, multinational automation corporations, and healthcare organizations. E-Business and Supply Chain Integration explains the strategic implications of new technologies and provides guidance on how to make effective supply chains in e-businesses.
