Description

Modern day supply chain management (SCM) continues to influence the economic and political landscape while being shaped by the wide array of forces known collectively as globalization. Instead of the traditional mode of firms competing against firms, there now are supply chains competing against supply chains. What is in good currency today refers to a firm's ability to identify the right suppliers to execute a given activity in the value chain, to organize such activities, and to manage its relationship with these suppliers.

E-Business Process Management: Technologies and Solutions explores the issues of supply chain management in a new perspective. It provides examples of integrated framework for global SCM, novel ways of improving flexibility, responsiveness, and competitiveness via strategic IT alliances among channel members in a supply chain network, and techniques that might facilitate improved strategic decision making in a SCM environment. E-Business Process Management: Technologies and Solutions introduces a game-theoretic approach to supply chain risk management, real-life case studies, and analyzes the effects of increased transparency in supply chain and business networks.
