Supply Chain Management at Warp Speed
Supply Chain Management at Warp Speed: Integrating the System from End to End by Eli Schragenheim, Bill Dettmer and J. Wayne Patterson, is an expansion on Schragenheim & Dettmer’s earlier work focused on manufacturing / shop floor, Manufacturing at Warp Speed. The book covers manufacturing with a basic review of drum-buffer-rope (DBR) and discusses a new approach to DBR called Simplified DBR that has become a common implementation technique. They expand beyond the shop floor to discuss managing raw materials as well as the distribution chain beyond manufacturing out to the customer.
P3CG recommendation: We recommend this as a great textbook on manufacturing and distribution implementations of Theory of Constraints.
Publisher’s description: Fully illustrated, with numerous examples, case studies, and manufacturing scenarios, Supply Chain Management at Warp Speed provides TOC practitioners with the tools needed to address the performance issues of the entire supply chain and develop solutions that represent a win for the end-user as well as stakeholders along the entire supply chain.
