Supply chain management, both in industry and in academia, has grown rapidly over the past several years mainly due to an increase in corporate goals of reducing manufacturing costs and the savings that come from planning and managing the supply chain effectively. Most textbooks do not include models and decision support systems robust enough for industry. Designing and Managing the Supply Chain: Concepts, Strategies, and Cases, 2/e by Simchi-Levy, Kaminsky and Simchi-Levi discusses the problems, models and concepts derived from issues related to effective supply chain management. This text is suitable for both academic study and practicing professionals. While many core supply chain management issues are interrelated, the authors have tried to make each chapter as self-contained as possible so that the reader can refer directly to chapters covering topics of interest. Each chapter utilizes case studies and numerous examples. Mathematical and technical sections can be skipped without loss of continuity. The accompanying CD-ROM also provides two simulations, the Computerized Beer Game and the Risk Pool Game and a computerized tool, new to this edition, for developing and executing supply chain contracts. These packages help illustrate many of the concepts discussed.

Broad Introduction to many critical issues pertinent to Supply Chain Management: The topics discussed range from a basic discussion of inventory management, logistics network design, distribution systems, and customer value, to more advanced discussions of strategic alliances, the value of information in the supply chain, information technology and decisions support systems, and international issues in supply chain management.
State-of-the-art models: Managing and Designing the Supply Chain introduces state-of-the-art models, concepts, and solution methods important in the design, control operation, and management of supply chain systems. While conveying the intuition behind many key supply chain concepts, the authors provide simple techniques, which can be used to analyze various aspects of the supply chain.
Innovative Software included on CD-ROM: The Computerized Beer Game and the Risk Pool Game are included on a CD-ROM, available free-of-charge and packaged with each copy of the text. These games provide a stimulating way for students to learn many of the concepts discussed in the book. The games demonstrate the value of the supply chain, and the impact of lead times, centralized decision-making, and risk pooling, on supply chain operations.
Case Studies: Each chapter contains at least one case study. The purpose of these case studies two-fold: to offer a real example of a supply chain challenge and to provide students with numerous opportunities to develop apply their knowledge to a strategic question or set of questions involving supply chain management.
Authorship: The authors have taught a variety of students and the book is written to appeal to many types of readers. This book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate business students as well as for engineers and engineering students. It will also have tremendous appeal to customers in the professional market that are seeking a reference book on supply chain management.
