Th e prime objective for writing the fi rst edition of this book was to provide an up-to-date text
at a reasonable cost. We also felt that there was a signifi cant gap in the literature for a book that
off ered a broad strategic framework as well as a clear and straightforward description of the
basic functions and elements related to logistics and distribution.
In the second edition of the book, published in 2000, we provided a signifi cant revision of the

Over the last decade, supply chain management has advanced from the warehouse
and logistics to strategic management. Integrating theory and practices of supply chain
management, this book incorporates hands-on literature on selected topics of Value
Creation, Supply Chain Management Optimization and Mass-Customization. These
topics represent key building blocks in management decisions and highlight the
increasing importance of the supply chains supporting the global economy.
When you complete this chapter you should be able to: Explain the strategic importance of the supply chain, identify six supply-chain strategies, explain issues and opportunities in the supply chain, describe the steps in vendor selection, explain major issues in logistics management, compute the percentage of assets committed to inventory and inventory turnover.

In June 1998, U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the National Partnership for Reinventing Government presented a team of Army logisticians and RAND analysts the Hammer Award in recognition of a great accomplishment: making Army logistics work better and cost less. This report documents that achievement. Started in 1995, the

The first edition of Global Logistics and Distribution Planning: Strategies for
Management appeared in 1988. Since then the whole field of logistics has
changed. Of course, there is still agreement about the basic principle of a
supply chain as ‘the series of activities and organizations that materials –
both tangible and intangible – move through on their journeys from
initial suppliers to final customers’ (Waters, 2009).
Supply Chain Management (SCM) offers the possibility of increased customer
service while minimizing costs. Before choosing what type of supply chain strategy to
pursue, a firm must first evaluate the type of supply chain(s) in which it participates. The
type of functional strategies chosen should complement the type of supply chain(s) in
which the firm is a member. Certain manufacturing and logistics strategies are more
appropriate given the characteristics of the supply chain.
What can’t be measured can’t be improved. Even though Supply Chain Management is the most talked about topic today, currently no tool is available to measure any manufacturing organizations’ supply chain efficiency. Unlike productivity and or quality measurement, where the parameter can be measured objectively and expressed in unit or ratio, supply chain measurement is currently more of a qualitative statement.
