Item description for Agent-based Supply Network Event Management (Whitestein Series in Software Agent Technologies and Autonomic Computing) by Roland Zimmermann...

"Supply Chain Event Management (SCEM)" is one of the major topics in application-oriented Supply Chain Management. However, many solutions lack conceptual precision and currently available client-server SCEM-systems are ill-suited for complex supply networks in today's business environment. Agent-based proactive information logistics promises to overcome existing deficits by providing event-related information to all participants in the distributed environment. Hence, follow-up costs of disruptive events are significantly reduced for all network participants and performance of a supply network is increased.

In this book a thorough analysis of the event management problem domain is the starting point to develop a generic agent-based approach to Supply Network Event Management. The main focus lies on practical issues of event management (e.g., semantic interoperability) and economic benefits to be achieved with agent technology in this state-of-the-art problem domain.

Reviews - What do customers think about Agent-based Supply Network Event Management (Whitestein Series in Software Agent Technologies and Autonomic Computing)?

A Theoretical Approach  Jun 13, 2006
It should come as no surprise to anyone in business that ripples in the supply chain can grow to tidal waves before they reach the bottom line. One example: an 18 strike at a brake supplier stopped production in 26 General Motors plants. Today everyone wants to minimize inventory, going to some form of Just-In-Time (JIT) delivery of components. This means that the potential for greater disruption of the manufacturing process grows with the shortness of the reserve for delayed delivery.

In this book the author has developed an autonomous, reactive/proactive agent that then has the ability to communicate with other agents or humans. This agent(a computer program of a special type) is developed for event management to maintain an almost continuous check on the supply line. This book uses a theoretical approach and does not provide actual code.
