This book focuses on long-term strategic location decision and tactical inventory planning for researchers and students dealing with supply chain management. It contains three parts: Centralized supply chain management (including strategic planning, inventory models, demand and supply chain uncertainty, and flexibility), Decentralizes supply chain management (including propagation of volatility and supply chain coordination), and the Future of supply chain management (including emerging topics). The book also features appendices on how to write proofs, helpful formulas, and other background material including probability basics, stochastic processes, and Lagrangian relaxation.
