Hierarchical and Supply Chain Planning describes the application of hierarchical planning techniques to all major functional areas of supply chain planning, including production, distribution, warehousing, transportation, inventory management, forecasting and performance management. The book reviews well-known, original hierarchical production planning techniques and implementations dating back several decades and numerous more current hierarchical planning methods and applications covering an array of supply chain activities. A number of novel hierarchical planning techniques and algorithms covering different components of supply chain planning are offered as is an original approach for integrating supply chain measurements into systems such as the balanced scorecard which evaluate total firm performance. The book covers the interests of private industry practitioners, academic researchers, and students of operations, logistics and supply chain management and planning.

Distributed decision making (DDM) has become of increasing importance in quantitative decision analysis. In applications like supply chain management, service operations, or managerial accounting, DDM has led to a paradigm shift. The book provides a unified approach to such seemingly diverse fields as multi-level stochastic programming, hierarchical production planning, principal agent theory, negotiations or contract theory. Different settings like multi-level one-person decision problems, multi-person antagonistic planning, and leadership situations are covered. Numerous examples and real-life planning cases illustrate the concepts. The new edition has been considerably expanded by additional chapters on supply chain management, service operations and multi-agent systems.

This book takes a pedagogical approach that is participative and interactive, involving the case study method of learning. Chapters start with an Indian case study of a well known company. This is used as a capstone case for the chapter. The student will find this an easy learning experience as data and additional information for these enterprises is readily available. The selection of such cases makes classroom learning truly suited to the Indian business environment.The value driven approach to Operations Management is used in structuring the text into three modules. The first module discusses the infrastructure function of Operations Management. Infrastructure function is considered to be product, process, capacity and location. Module Two describes the structure of the operations function. This includes quality and other product transformation processes. Module Three focuses on the organization, people and processes i.e. the job, the work, and the workplace. In addition, most of the mathematical techniques have been separated into supplements attached to the relevant chapters. Software solutions for the techniques have been explained in the text. Every mathematical technique is exemplified with a number of solved problems. Unlike many Production and Operations Management texts, this book covers E-commerce, Industrial Safety, Maintenance, Environmental Management (Green Productivity) and new technological trends in the discipline. These sections should add to the significance of exploring how firms can gain competitive advantage and promote sustainable development at the same time. The last section of the book comprises of a selection of cases from The Indian Institute of Management at Ahmedabad. The cases encompass the entire spectrum of Indian Industry the private and the public sectors, professional and family managed business organizations, service and manufacturing industries, single industry and conglomerates. The cases relate to Operations Strategy, Supply Chain Management, Capacity Planning, New Products, Manufacturing Technologies, etc. The Case Studies are of world class. Prof. Tirupati, one of the authors of the case studies, according to Management Science, has penned one of the top 100 management articles in the 50 years.The book is comprehensive, lucid and easy to read and understand. It should be of great value both to students and faculty.

The advent of the Information Age has transformed the ways in which individuals work, travel, and conduct their daily activity. Anna Nagurney and June Dong lay out the theory of supernetworks, networks that exist over and above existing electronic networks, in order to formalize decision-making in the Information Age. Supernetworks are conceptual in scope, graphical in perspective, and, with the accompanying theory, predictive in nature. In this book, the authors provide a unifying framework for the study of decision-making by a variety of economic agents including consumers and producers as well as distinct intermediaries in the context of today's networked economy. They provide the conceptual, analytical, and computational tools for the study of supernetworks. Their approach is rigorous and of sufficient generality and detail to give added insight into the behavior and structure of large-scale, interacting and competitive network systems, such as transportation, telecommunication, and financial networks. Areas studied include: supply chain networks with electronic commerce, financial networks with intermediation, telecommunicating versus commuting decision-making, teleshopping versus shopping decision-making, as well as transportation and location decisions. Case studies drawn from practice are provided for illustration purposes. Academics and practitioners in economics, business, and operations research along with management scientists, transportation and logistics researchers, computer scientists and applied mathematicians will find this book fascinating and useful.

This book provides the latest models, methods and guidelines for networked enterprises to enhance their competitiveness and move towards innovative high performance and agile industrial systems. In the new global market, competitiveness and economic growth rely greatly on the move toward innovative high performance industrial systems and agile networked enterprises through the creation and consolidation of non-hierarchical manufacturing networks of multi-national SMEs as opposed to networks based on powerful large-scale companies. Network performance can be significantly improved through more harmonious and equitable peer-to-peer inter-enterprise relationships, conforming decentralized and collaborative decision-making models. Traditional hierarchical manufacturing networks are based on centralized models, where some of the actors involved must adapt themselves to the constraints defined by those who are most dominant. Real-world experiences of such models have revealed some major problems due to the centralized vision of the supply chain and the sub-optimal performance of centralized decision-making. For the current highly dynamic markets, this generates major inefficiencies in operation throughout the supply chain. This book collects the latest research regarding non-hierarchical manufacturing networks and provides enterprises with valuable models, methods and guidelines to improve their competitiveness.
