Business logistics by P. M. van Buytenen( Book )

12 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Business logistics has recently been defined as 'the process of managing all activities required to strategically move raw ma terials, parts, and finished inventory from vendors, between enterprise facilities, and to customers' . Many other definitions are available but this definition (1) stresses the fact that logistics concerns the strategical management level in the first place because of the over-all character of logistics and its long-term aspects; too long, emphasis has been laid on the operational aspects of logistics. The heart of the logistics concept is an integrated approach where cost savings are identified by considering the total costs of the system. This approach already implies the need for over-all management since the decisions about the different elements of the logistics system (transportation, inventories, facilities, unitization, communications) are traditionally made within different functions or departments. However, the need for over-all management becomes more stringent where the effectiveness of the company as a whole is considered i. e. where the logistics system has to be brought into balance with the production system and the marketing system (e. g. inventory levels vs. production-run lengths and customer service levels) . All elements of the logistiCS system have long-term aspects which have to be put into a planning system, c.q. the planning of a new transportation method, the planning of a new distribution centre

Business operations models : becoming a disruptive competitor by Martin Christopher( Book )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Operations management designs, controls, and oversees the production of a company's goods/services and makes sure this process is both efficient and effective for the consumer. It should be a part of board room discussions and integral in a company's business model and strategic management. After much research and think tank consulting, authors Martin Christopher and Alan Braithwaite believe that business strategies hardly recognize operations management. They maintain that operations need to be seen as more strategic and have highlighted the core fundamentals that business leaders need to be guided by in Business Operations Models. Illustrated by emotive visualization and international case studies, this book offers new thinking in logistics, supply chain management, and operations management"--
