In logistics systems, the issue of planning stability has attracted increased attention and interest in recent years. This is mainly due to an increasing integration of planning systems both within and across companies in supply chain management. The propagation of adjustments in planning systems first acquired wide attention when MRP systems were employed as standard planning tools for material coordination. Within a rolling horizon framework the MRP application produced considerable planning instability which origins from uncertainties in the planner's exogenous environment as well as from endogenous sources. This book presents an analytical investigation that gives deep insight into the influence of different kind of inventory control rules on the stability of material planning systems under stochastic demand in a rolling horizon environment.

"Learn how to implement demand driven metrics for vast improvement in measuring performance.Demand Driven Performance details why the outdated forms of measurement are inappropriate for current circumstances and reveals an elegant set of global and localmetrics to fit today's demand driven world. The book shows how to minimize the organizational and supply chain conflicts that impede flow, and eventually, corporate success.Metrics are used to create a benchmark for measuring improvement and to identify and focus on those improvements that are most needed, and that have the highest ROI. However, the world has fundamentally changed in terms of delivering value and driving strong financial performance and growth. The continued use of outdated metrics is driving companies in the wrong direction giving them false signals, putting their personnel into conflict at all levels of the organization, and also wreaking havoc in the supply chain. This book offers solutions to remedy these issues. Defines a new demand driven approach for measuring total organizational performance and the corresponding local metrics that integrate with those measures Advocates a systems approach to measuring improvement, and shows how conventional metrics are no longer appropriate Focuses on reliability, stability, speed/velocity, strategic contribution, local operating expense, and local improvement waste A case study demonstrates the processes in the book and provides you with the technology and tools needed to achieve a demand driven system "--

The logistician plays a critical role in the growth of his or her company – in this third edition of Essentials of Logistics, the conceptual framework in which all the stakes and themes of logistics is systematically analyzed, with a strong focus on the role of the supply chain. Indeed, many elements are critical to the successful logistical strategy: customer relation management, interactive information support, production optimization and process development, vision, strategy and operations management, and human resources and resource allocation. Growing out of a successful course given by the International Institute for the Management of Logistics (IML) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), in Lausanne, and by the Ecole des Ponts-ParisTech (ENPC), the purpose of this book is to present a methodology allowing the reader to understand and act based on the critical factors embedded in the design of strategy. Concepts are thus combined with practical examples. Transversal vision and detailed case studies highlight the main themes of modern logistics and daily preoccupations of logisticians. The book is addressed to all professionals of logistics: managers, planners and engineers; as well as to graduate students specializing in the field.

Our economy and future way of life depend on how well American manufacturing managers adapt to the dynamic, globally competitive landscape and evolve their firms to keep pace. A major challenge is how to structure the firms environment so that it attains the speed and low cost of high-volume flow lines while retaining the flexibility and customization potential of a low-volume job shop. The books three parts are organized according to three categories of skills required by managers and engineers: basics, intuition, and synthesis. Part I reviews traditional operations management techniques and identifies the necessary components of the science of manufacturing. Part II presents the core concepts of the book, beginning with the structure of the science of manufacturing and a discussion of the systems approach to problem solving. Other topics include behavioral tendencies of manufacturing plants, push and pull production systems, the human element in operations management, and the relationship between quality and operations. Chapter conclusions include main points and observations framed as manufacturing laws. In Part III, the lessons of Part I and the laws of Part II are applied to address specific manufacturing management issues in detail. The authors compare and contrast common problems, including shop floor control, long-range aggregate planning, workforce planning and capacity management. A main focus in Part III is to help readers visualize how general concepts in Part II can be applied to specific problems. Written for both engineering and management students, the authors demonstrate the effectiveness of a rule-based and data driven approach to operations planning and control. They advance an organized framework from which to evaluate management practices and develop useful intuition about manufacturing systems.

Hands are one of the major sources and routes for cross-contamination in the food industry. Reducing cross-contamination is key in the production of microbiologically safer, higher quality food. Hand hygiene policies and the facilities provided for hand hygiene in food handling environments vary greatly. It is generally accepted that, as a bare minimum, policies should include the washing of hands before handling food, and that the facilities provided should be specifically for hand washing. However, hand hygiene policies can extend far beyond this basic requirement. The hand hygiene facilities, their location and their usage may also vary greatly. Some companies even monitor hand washing activities by way of closed circuit television. This document reviews knowledge and practices relating to hand hygiene within the food and medical industries and uses this to propose best practice for hand hygiene within the food industry.

Materials management has become an important activity in both manu facturing and service organizations. Rapid changes in the industrial envi ronment, such as the introduction of automation and Just-In-Time, and demands for increased productivity and quality have increased the need for alI personnel to be concerned with total control of materials. Clearly this trend will continue, and materials management wilI play an increasingly vital role in organizational success, especialIy for operations that are be coming automated. Materials management will be more critical in many service organizations where the materials group has received little attention in the past. This book covers the basic materials management function and provides valuable insights into various other major functions related to it. We believe that each of these-manufacturing, marketing, finance, quaIity assurance, and engineering-is vitalIy involved in materiaIs management, and any coverage of the subject that excludes these functions offers too narrow a perspective. With increasing demand for materials managers, human resource re quirements will be satisfied by individuals trained within the discipline and by personnel who have worked in other fields. The dimensions of materials management have grown so rapidly that many practicing managers are not aware that they are fulfilling material management functions. It is impor tant that alI individuals have the basic knowledge required to perforrn their roles in these organizations.
