Description

This book examines the opportunities for, and the effects and benefits of, collaborative working practices and their impact on supply chain performance. The first part of the book focuses on modeling the supply chain using conceptual frameworks to describe the relationship between collaboration and performance. The second part examines the issues around information systems alignment, and ensuring the management and coordination of interactions with suppliers and customers. The final part focuses on the various different formalized approaches that may be taken to analyze the impact of any given collaboration process, coordination mechanism, or decision-making behavior.
