New challenges in supply chain design and management emerged after the rapid development of information and network technologies and market requirements. Four of these new technologies are: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology; mobile transaction technology; information handling and storage technology; and multi-agent technology. They can enable companies to change their thinking about supply chain management to cope with these changes. New methodologies include: sustainable supply chain management, advanced supply chain planning, available-to-promise (ATP) systems and lean supply chain design and management. This edited book describes new trends in supply chain design and management with an emphasis on technologies and methodologies and contains guidelines detailing the real-world applications of these technologies and methodologies. This book is of interest to researchers and practitioners and can also be used as a reference handbook by lecturers and postgraduate students in this field.
