Tan Miller describes the application of hierarchical planning ideas and concepts across the supply chain… He does an excellent job of pulling together much of the literature on hierarchical planning, and he presents some new methods and algorithms as well. He writes clearly and makes good use of tables and diagrams to illustrate the hierarchical nature of the problems studied.…
I recommend this book for a variety of audiences: researchers interested in understanding the current state of hierarchical modelling applications, especially optimization, in supply-chain management; practitioners interested in implementing specific supply-chain modeling applications; and professors interested in a supplemented, modeling-oriented text for their advanced classes in supply-chain, logistics, or operations management.
