With a combination of analytical concepts, case studies, and examples, written by experts from academia (both who are still teaching at MIT and University of California, Berkeley) and industry who have been researching, consulting, and developing software for supply chain management for many years, the Fourth Edition continues in this direction in important ways by adding new chapters on timely topics including supply chain risk management, supply chain flexibility, and sustainable supply chains.
