Review of earlier edition:

 

"The present book focuses on the application of operational research and mathematical modelling techniques to logistics and supply chain management (SCM) problems. The authors performed a substantial revision of the 1st edition and included a number of new subjects ... . The book is carefully written and is an important reference for readers with a solid background in probability and optimisation theory ... . the present book should be seen as a valuable guide describing techniques that can be applied or adapted to real-life situations." (OR News, Issue 25, 2005)
