Reviews - What do customers think about Cost Management in Supply Chains?
Overpriced Sep 28, 2007
This is a collection of papers on the subject of supply chain cost managment. Some of them are very useful and others are not. It is overpriced for the amount of useful infromation you are going to get. At $25 this would be a fair deal, at $70 it is priced like a college textbook.
Want to have a wide perspective of Supply Chains? Sep 18, 2002
The critical factors of time and speed make "Supply Chain Optimization" very important for all companies today. For either a manufacturer or a service provider concentrating on time and of course on money is getting more attention. So both cost management and supply chain management enables companies to achieve competitiveness. This book is a very good example of integrating costs and supply chains.
I can easily say that it was a unique book that changed my perspective and widely increased my knowledge about Supply Chains. It is a well sourced and different kinds of authors makes the book more attractive.
The book has 4 parts. First part introduces the concepts for cost management in Supply Chain. In this part, one of the editors "Stefan Seuring" gives a very brief and well done conceptual framework for Supply Chain Costing. Also the other editor Maria Goldbach presents an organizational approach for Supply Chains and provides a cooperative framework for supply chain costing from the perspective of both functional and constitutional levels. The second part deals with applying cost management instruments. The third part concentrates on building cost management models. The fourth part extends the scope beyond cost and includes subjects internet based purchasing tools, complexity management and balanced scorecard from the view of Supply Chains.
In general, it is stated that suuply chain optimization presents a big opportunity for improving supply chain performance.
I would like to thank to the editors for such a good order and classification and also to the authors for a very wide perspective of Supply Chains.
