Explore the opportunities and challenges associated with managing an e-supply chain
Using e-business technologies to manage supply chains increases the efficiency and performance 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 achieving higher productivity.
This essential book examines supply chain theories along with real life cases and examples from industry to illustrate how e-business can enhance supply chain integration and highlights the negative outcomes when it is neglected and poorly managed. Dr Ozlem Bak and a team of expert contributors from practice and academia assess the impact of e-business on numerous different sectors, such as automotive, healthcare, logistics, higher education, and professional services. E-Business and Supply Chain Integration explains the strategic implications of new technologies and provides guidance on effective supply chains in e-businesses.
This book will prove to be a valuable resource to anyone looking to gain a secure foothold and strong understanding in emerging technologies and their subsequent impact on future supply chains.
