    By James A. Cooke

    Features rising tendencies which are shaping offer chain operations around the globe in addition to impacting the worldwide enterprise landscape

    Beginning with the statement that offer chains are an neglected issue at the back of anemic financial progress, Protean offer Chains: Ten Dynamics of offer and insist Alignment presents a finished evaluation of the advancements happening within the box of provide chain administration. A large variety of issues in facility situation, stock, strategic sourcing, and provide chain coordination are addressed as well as insurance of significant advancements in the box. The author’s major place is that provide chains needs to be greater than agile or versatile; quite, they have to develop into protean and in a position to altering form in accordance with a risky international company landscape.

    The writer, a widely known editor and researcher within the box, offers present real-world examples mixed with insights into the influence of modern traits which are anticipated to impact the worldwide enterprise panorama over the following decade. Highlighting businesses with modern provide chains as examples, the ebook discusses tips on how to decrease spending, elevate sales, and attain streamlined productiveness in a altering financial system. The ebook makes use of extra examples from the expansion of on-line retailing and automation in distribution facilities, in addition to using protean offer chains to realize aggressive merits the world over. moreover, the publication good points the subsequent ten rising traits, that are shaping provide chain operations worldwide:


    • The upward thrust of neighborhood theatres of supply
    • Global possibility administration via regulate towers
    • Customer segmentation
    • Real call for realization
    •  Omniichannel retailing  challenges
    • Demand swing alignment with construction and distribution
    • Customer of 1 service
    • Sustainability  challenges
    • Collaboration vs. pageant within the new economy
    • Financial dynamism

    The publication is a perfect reference for execs and practitioners in operations study, business/management technology, utilized arithmetic, and commercial engineering in addition to a suitable complement for undergraduate and graduate-level classes in provide chain management.

  • Fabbriche, sistemi, organizzazioni: Storia dell’ingegneria by Ana Millán Gasca

    By Ana Millán Gasca

    Nel processo di creazione dell’infrastruttura industriale dei paesi occidentali hanno avuto un ruolo di primo piano gli ingegneri industriali. Formati in scuole tecniche specializzate (come l. a. Ecole centrale des arts et manufactures), los angeles loro attivit� ha riguardato, oltre che le macchine, l’organizzazione e los angeles gestione di grandi impianti e sistemi tecnologici. Insieme agli ingegneri al servizio dello stato, nell’Ottocento rappresentavano – meglio di altre professioni tradizionali – l’emblema della modernizzazione e dell’azione guidata dalla razionalit� . Nel Novecento l’attivit� dell’ingegnere industriale si svolge dietro le quinte, eppure essa è fondamentale nel sistema sociale ed economico moderno, centrata com’è nella progettazione e nella gestione dei grandi sistemi di produzione e nella catena logistica e di distribuzione globale.

    Il sapere organizzativo e gestionale dell’ingegnere presenta tratti specifici – che lo distinguono da quello del supervisor – legati all’antica tradizione operativa dell’ingegnere e al moderno uso di strumenti matematici di ottimizzazione. Esso si confronta oggi con il problema della gestione dei sistemi organizzativi nei settori più diversi, dall’industria alle comunicazioni, alla sanit� , alla pubblica amministrazione, offrendo risposte originali ed efficaci.

    Questo libro esamina l’origine delle sfide tecnologiche e organizzative dell’industria in Europa e negli Stati Uniti e le tappe della sua formulazione teorica; l. a. creazione della figura dell’ingegnere industriale fra Ottocento e Novecento; e l’elaborazione delle self-discipline tecnologiche e del linguaggio e dei concetti fondamentali (sistema, automazione, controllo, ottimizzazione, rete) dell’ingegneria industriale moderna. Diviso in tre parti organizzate cronologicamente, ogni capitolo è corredato da letture, indicazioni bibliografiche in line with l’approfondimento e schede illustrative di aspetti storici, biografici (relativi a alcuni grandi ingegneri, scienziati e filosofi), terminologici e matematico-tecnici.
