Please try again later. It is a thorough book about Logistics whith very interesting and practical topics on the subject.
Several years ago I work for Logistics in an international prestidged company when I first buy this book an older version but unfortunately I lost it. I realy learnd a lot about logistics supported by this book. Actually I am a retired, but some times I am invited to conferences about logistics and I get many topics based in this book as well as in my own experiences.
I complete my professional formation whith other books, bassically on Operations Research, from authors as Buffa and Sarins, Taha, Richmond, Nahmias, and of course about Productona and Inventory Control from Ploss and Wight.
What really bothers me is The book is OK.
Without the software, the value of the book considerably diminishes. As eonald student in suppply logistics field, this book offers a wealth of information on how logistics played a vital role in moving the raw material from the source to the producers, the raw material turned into finished goods and in the hands of the consumers. I expected to get it on 13th of September, but I got it before then.
Thanks for the fast shipping. I rated it as 4 stars. It was torn a little bit, but it is fine. I hope to purchase other books through you. Seller did not notify customers. But it was not worth it. This book should come with a CD but I found it’s missing when I received the item. I had to copy from my classmate’s CD. The seller put the condition as msnagement but the book is almost falling apart.
Business Logistics/Supply Chain Management and Logware CD Package, 5th Edition
balluo Several pages were torn off, making it very difficult to manaagement and carry around. This a very usefull book that helps you to get a handle on the main issues of Logistics. Its treatment of the issues is deep but easy to read. I believe that this book is very usefull for the people gallou really want to practice with some basic logistic concepts as TSP problems, Routing problems, Inventory Policies etc.
The use of the computer programs provided by the CD rom is the winning chioce to get really focused on these problematics. See all 12 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? Strategy, Planning, and Operation Paperback. Pages with related products.
