Beschreibung

Despite significant achievements, the discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against Time claim that a unified supply chain network analytics framework is needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable products are prominent, from healthcare to food and from fashion apparel to technology. This Brief provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc multipliers that capture perish ability of the product whether food, radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustrate the power of the framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described along with the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is useful pedagogically as well as for future research and for applications in practice. Researchers and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management science, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science will find this book useful to gain a broader appreciation of the richness of network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can also be used by advanced undergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines noted above to familiarize themselves with methodologies and supply chain network models and applications.

Captures the full scope of supply chain network activities like production, storage, transportation and distribution??

Case studies demonstrate the application of models and algorithms to real-world sectors ?

Graphically depicts network structures of distinct supply chains comparisons across different application domains



Klappentext

Despite significant achievements, the
discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle
many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against
Time claim that a unified supply chain network analytics framework is
needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior
while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable
products are prominent, from healthcare to food and from fashion apparel to
technology.

This
Brief provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are
modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc
multipliers that capture perish ability of the product whether food,
radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and
time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models
and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustrate the power of the
framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described along with
the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is
useful pedagogically as well as for future research and for applications in
practice.

Researchers
and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management
science, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science
will find this book useful to gain a broader appreciation of the richness of
network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can
also be used by advanced undergraduate students and graduate students in the
disciplines noted above to familiarize themselves with methodologies and supply
chain network models and applications.
