Intensifying competition forces companies to closely integrate with their customers and suppliers. Cooperation creates a more flexible supply chain. Yet, lead-times become shorter and demand for increased variety continues to grow. This dilemma requires a means to implement the desired integration.

Completely revised and updated, ERP: Tools, Techniques, and Applications for Integrating the Supply Chain, Second Edition describes, from the perspective of a business manager, concepts and tools for enterprise planning, management, and execution. The text is written in an easy-to-read format, with many real examples from a variety of industries that illustrate key points.
This book can be used over and over, as a quick reference to obtain insight into ERP topics. With the help of a supplemental CD containing a Management Interactive Case Study System, this volume explains the application of ERP tools and techniques to different types of businesses, and enables you to test the concepts in a computer simulation model. You can control the dynamics of handling an ERP program within a virtual company, and learn from the resulting analysis of how to guide to this company to financial success.
