Electronic Supply Network Coordination in Intelligent and Dynamic Environments

Book Description

The widespread diffusion of digital infrastructure, applications, products, and services has created new challenges and opportunities for managers and corporations exposed to a dense and highly complex supply network. This complexity often requires innovative models, techniques, tools, processes, and structures.Electronic Supply Network Coordination in Intelligent and Dynamic Environments: Modeling and Implementation presents cutting-edge knowledge on scientific approaches to the management of supply networks in a highly informed global environment with abundant dynamic and uncertain challenges. This work examines how new mathematical and conceptual approaches are integrated with information technology and intelligent systems and how these models can help to improve the coordination of supply networks.
