A conceptual framework for enhanced coordination of production planning and control activities across the supply network is proposed and four key business processes focusing on the short to medium term are chosen for design and modelling and subsequent implementation.
Supply chain process modelling for manufacturing systems
In this chapter, business process modeling (BPM) is first introduced to provide some background information on SCPM, followed by a summarized description and critical discussion of prominent standards/notations and techniques for SCPM.
Global Supply Chain Management and Logistics Partnerships: A LSP’s Downstream Program Perspective
Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) have experience of dealing with the circulation of both domestic as well as globalized flows in time and space, and thus can play a strategic role in global supply
Major Techniques and Current Developments of Supply Chain Process Modelling
In this chapter, the background of business process modeling is first introduced, followed by a summarized description and critical discussion of the major techniques for supply chain process modeling such as the SCOR model, BPMN, UML, IDEF, and simulation.
Integration of customer and supplier flexibility in a make-to-order industry
The experimental results show that when either customers or suppliers provide flexible strategies to the manufacturer, total profits can be increased and, when both customers and suppliers provide flexibility strategies toThe manufacturer simultaneously, total profit can beincreased.
Minimizing the ripple effect caused by operational risks in a make-to-order supply chain
The developed system has the potential to significantly reduce the negative impact of the ripple effect caused by operational risks in a make-to-order supply chain in terms of material shortages, late deliveries and subsequent additional costs associated with expediting measures when a customer order is running late.
Defining a process for developing responsive knowledge pathways
To identify how organizations approach the development and implementation of their core processes in a manner that focuses on continued flexibility and responsiveness to changing customer needs, and

Reengineering channel reordering processes to improve total supply-chain performance
Evidence is provided to support the claims of process reengineering that are common in the popular business press, but for which statistically significant empirical evidence is minimal.
ICT‐enabled coordination of dynamic supply webs
Increasingly, two key trends – value‐ and cost‐conscious customers, and globalization of markets and supply sources – are shifting the competitive focus from the competitive advantage of firms to
