You’ll learn how to go beyond “flows” to create process maps that make your supply network mechanisms 100% visible. Then, the authors help you use your process maps to define controls, quantitatively measure performance, and act on what your metrics tell you. Oliveira and Gimeno illuminate their techniques with many specific examples, ranging from forecasting to delivery performance, warehousing to quality assurance.
