Inside you will find:

This guide groups the content into three parts that correspond to three basic process structures: two-stage, three-stage and four-stage supply chains — as well as supply chain-based risk management. It presents simulation and optimization examples by describing how to develop and build models and evaluate KPIs. It also discusses how to use these models and their simulation and optimization results to improve management decision-making.

The book is focused on management issues and uses clear terminology to describe the model development processes.
