Description

Using e-business technologies to manage supply chains increases the efficiency and performance of logistics, production, distribution and other related activities. E-Business and Supply Chain Integration explains how a number of tools can be used to produce an e-supply chain and achieve higher productivity.

This essential book examines supply chain theories along with real life cases and examples from industry to illustrate how e-business can enhance supply chain integration and highlights the negative outcomes when it is poorly managed. Dr Ozlem Bak and a team of expert contributors from practice and academia assess the impact of e-business on numerous different sectors, such as automotive, healthcare, logistics, higher education, and professional services. E-Business and Supply Chain Integration explains the strategic implications of new technologies and provides guidance on effective supply chains in e-businesses.

The spread of study is hugely impressive and useful, ranging from freight to education."--Martin Dorchester FIoD, Group Chief Executive, David MacBrayne Ltd "Filled with technical descriptions and thought provoking analysis, each chapter is supported and brought to life with a case study. This text would be a wonderful addition to the reading lists of academics, students and practitioners alike. As supply chains become increasingly digitized and underpinned by technology, who can afford not to read this book?!"--Dr. Sinead Roden, Associate Professor in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin "Given the general aspiration for improved productivity, a book like this which so carefully considers, from a practitioner and theoretical perspective, the impact of 'e-business' applications and the critical 'integration' challenges of implementing technological solutions is highly relevant at this time."--Stephen Hickman, Programme Director BSc Business, University of Exeter Business School, UK "This book provides a rich palette of diverse industries, from higher education to health service providers. It explores in a timely manner the e-business impact on organizations through concepts, perspectives and real-life case studies from practice and theory. This book is valuable not only for practitioners, but also for academics."--Professor Debbie Holley, Head of Centre for Excellence in Learning, Bournemouth University, UK "This book will prove to be a valuable resource to anyone looking to gain a secure foothold and strong understanding in emerging technologies and their subsequent impact on future supply chains."--Michael Johnson, Head of Business Solutions, Unipart, UK
