About this book

With the rapid development of information and network technologies and market requirements, new challenges in supply chain design and management have emerged. Notably, there are four new technologies which can affect traditional supply chain management: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology; mobile transaction technology; information handling and storage technology; and multi-agent technology. These new technologies enable global companies to change their ways of thinking about supply chain management in order to cope with the changing environment. In line with this rapid development of technologies are new challenging methodologies: sustainable supply chain management, advanced supply chain planning, available-to-promise (ATP) system and lean supply chain design and management.

Trends in Supply Chain Design and Management: Technologies and Methodologies is a collection of chapters from active researchers and practitioners which describe new trends in supply chain design and management with emphasis on technologies and methodologies. Each chapter contains guidelines detailing the real-world application(s) of the presented technologies and methodologies.

By reading Trends in Supply Chain Design and Management: Technologies and Methodologies, researchers will gain an insight into the evolving trends in supply chain design and management and practitioners will learn about the practical applications of the technologies and methodologies discussed. This book could also be used as a reference handbook by lecturers and postgraduate students in advanced supply chain design and management.

The Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing publishes the best teaching and reference material to support students, educators and practitioners in manufacturing technology and management. This international series includes advanced textbooks, research monographs, edited works and conference proceedings covering all subjects in advanced manufacturing. The series focuses on new topics of interest, new treatments of more traditional areas and coverage of the applications of information and communication technology (ICT) in manufacturing.

About the authors

Since 1999, Dr. Hosang Jung has been involved with several projects sponsored by the Korean Government (Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy) and IMS (Intelligent Manufacturing Systems: www.ims.org) regarding supply chain management. In addition, he has published over 12 international journal and proceeding papers on supply chain design and management. He received a best research paper award from the Korean Supply Chain Management Society in June 2002. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Virginia Tech.

Prof. F. Frank Chen is currently the John L. Lawrence Endowed Professor of Manufacturing Systems Engineering at the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Virginia Tech. He was the founding Director (2001-2004) and is currently the Associate Director leading the area of Flexible Automation and Lean Manufacturing Technologies of the Center for High Performance Manufacturing at Virginia Tech. Dr. Chen is currently serving in the Technology Advisory Panel of the U.S. National Next Generation Manufacturing Technology Initiative (www.ngmti.us) with primary responsibilities in helping prioritize U.S. federal research funding in the areas of Enterprise Integration and Model-Based Enterprise. As the author or co-author of over 140 technical papers and reports, Dr. Chen is an associate editor of SME Journal of Manufacturing Systems and serves on the editorial board of the International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology. As one of the nine NSF nominated engineering professors in the nation who received the 1996 Presidential Faculty Fellows Award from President Clinton at the White House, Dr. Chen has served as a principal investigator of over $8 million externally funded research projects and equipment grants sponsored by agencies such as National Science Foundation, Caterpillar Inc., Air Force Research Laboratory, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and most recently the Commonwealth of Virginia (Commonwealth Technology Research Fund Program), since 1991. Dr. Chen received the B.E. (Industrial Engineering) from Tunghai University (in Taiwan) and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in industrial engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Since Prof. Bongju Jeong earned a Ph.D. degree from the Pennsylvania State University in 1993, he worked in the Semiconductor Division of Samsung Electronics & Co. as a senior researcher. Following his move in 1996 to one of Korea’s most prestigious universities - Yonsei University - he has led over 10 projects sponsored by the Korean Government (Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy) and leading companies (Samsung Electronics, Samsung SDS, Corning, and Samsung Display Devices, etc.) as a principal investigator. Also, he has published two (translated) books, and over 30 international journal and proceeding papers on the supply chain management and manufacturing system. He is now an executive member of the Korean Supply Chain Management Society.
