Supply Chain Innovation is aimed at students in undergraduate and graduate

courses in supply chain management. Collaborative planning, e-fulfillment,

outsourcing, social media and cloud computing, technological developments

and automation all have an impact on supply chain and operations management.

Renewable energy and modal shifts in distribution will change the urban

landscape. This poses challenges for supply chain partners and stakeholders,

including educational institutes. This book contributes to fi nding innovative supply chain solutions.

The book is written from a business perspective and starts by explaining

how organizations can live up to their corporate and social responsibility

and develop a mission to serve people, planet and profi t. The following chapters deal with planning, quality and process management, and the individual

processes in the supply chain. The final chapter looks at the future and, more

specifi cally, at innovation in the supply chain.

This second edition has been completely revised to include the latest developments in business and sustainability. Each chapter starts with

learning objectives, to help students focus on the key concepts, which are also

illustrated in the text by a large number of examples and cases. At the end of each chapter, study questions allow students to test their knowledge and a comprehensive case study helps them to tackle real-world challenges.

Mauk Wilbers graduated as a business economist at Tilburg University and is a Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP). He teaches Supply Chain Management at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences in Maastricht, the Netherlands.
