Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter introduces the concept of supply chain management, its role in optimising business decision-making and the approaches to model supply chains that have been attempted to date. The increasing complexities generated by globalisation and the development of sophisticated communications have created the need for a more sophisticated approach to the choice of supply chain design by companies. The impact of this trend on supply chain model design and selection is discussed in preparation for the coming chapters.
