In the follow-up to his hugely successful Strategic Supply Chain Alignment, John Gattorna’s Dynamic Supply Chain Alignment, explores how to create and sustain multiple supply chains with a level of flexibility and responsiveness that allow you to respond to opportunities and threats; at the same time aligning with your suppliers, your partners and your customers.

Just-in-Time Logistics
Kee-hung Lai and T.C.E Cheng

Just-in-Time Logistics extends the JIT concept in manufacturing to business logistics, an area that has been observed to account for more than 30 per cent of sales revenue for some firms. It gives you an overview and an introduction of JIT logistics, and provides managerial insights on how to achieve improved logistics performance in terms of cost and service enhancements. A discussion of the quality, implementation, and performance measurement issues related to the application of JIT in business logistics is also presented.

Measuring the Value of the Supply Chain
Enrico Camerinelli

Enrico Camerinelli provides the supply chain manager and the CFO with the means to link the value of the supply chain to an organisation’s bottom line. He explores the problem with current supply chain metrics, shows how to close the gap between financial decisions and supply chain performance, suggests a model to provide a lingua franca for supply chain, financial and other managers throughout the company and points to ways in which new technology can help measure the value of the supply chain.
