E-Supply Chain

E-SUPPLY CHAIN, the most advanced and up-to-date publication of its kind, reveals how companies can form the necessary business alliances to combine the power of supply chain and the Internet-two of most versatile and effective business tools of the new century.

E-Supply Chain shows how leading companies have forged a one- to two-year lead over competing supply chain networks using the marriage of supply chain and e-commerce to achieve market dominance. The authors present a step-by-step process for establishing joint efforts and combining best practices to create an unbeatable network of seamless response to specific business customers or consumer groups.

Rich in details and action studies, E-Supply Chain is a hands-on guide to implementing the changes necessary in each of the major functions of a typical firm-purchasing, marketing, sales, customer service, engineering, planning, manufacturing, logistics, and more. The authors detail how the e-supply chain network evolves to become a global "value chain constellation," destined to dominate specific markets and industries while always keeping the satisfaction of the customer or consumer as the ultimate goal.

Combined with Poirier's two earlier books, Supply Chain Optimization and Advanced Supply Chain Management, E-Supply Chain completes the trilogy that can take any organization from its beginning stages to full application of advanced supply chain and e-commerce techniques.
