From the Back Cover:

Using Decision Sciences to Build More Innovative, Effective Supply Chains:
The Best Work from the European Decision Sciences Institute’s 2014 Conference


  • Optimizing strategy, production and sourcing, integration, and sustainability
  • Identifying new ways to drive value from supply chain innovation
  • Leveraging decision-making advances in supply chain modeling and social network analysis

Decision sciences researchers continue to identify robust new approaches to improve the management of complex global supply chain networks. This book brings together their best peer-reviewed papers from the 2014 Annual Conference of the European Decision Sciences Institute (EDSI) in Kolding, Denmark.

These papers present important advances in supply chain strategy, innovation, production, sourcing, integration, e-commerce, and sustainability. Contributors identify new lessons from humanitarian supply chains, offer new insights into reducing energy costs and responding to rapid market changes, and show how to improve interdisciplinary decision support across multiple supply chain and logistics functions. They address key issues including stakeholder management, manufacturing strategy, volume and storage flexibility, and the relationship between continuous improvement and business performance.

These papers offer actionable insights for supply chain decision-makers of all kinds, while also opening fruitful new directions for research. Presented at the 2014 Annual Conference of the European Decision Sciences Institute (EDSI) in Kolding, Denmark, this work addresses decision-making advances for supply chain strategy, production, sourcing, integration, and sustainability.

The researchers reflect advances in network analysis, modeling, multicriteria decision making (MCDM), and other areas of decision science. Their case studies are drawn from diverse global environments, ranging from manufacturers and energy producers to humanitarian organizations.

Combining academic rigor and practical value, this work will be valuable to faculty, researchers, and students in supply chain management, logistics, operations, business, and economics--and for everyone interested in advanced decision sciences.

  • Modeling and promoting supply chain innovation (SCI)
  • Clarifying the capabilities needed to build agile, value-added supply chains
  • Quantifying the impact of volume and storage flexibility on operational performance

  • Identifying winning supply chain strategies in the growing wind energy marketplace
  • Re-evaluating manufacturing strategies: back-shoring, near-shoring, offshoring
  • Linking continuous improvement with business performance
  • Designing supply network structures to reduce energy costs
  • Integrating supply chains in complex engineering projects
