Reconfigurable Supply Chains: An Integrated Framework
The importance of supply chain management is increasing because companies face the necessity to improve customer service, which is not possible by considering just separate organizations. This need has been driven by increasing customer expectations, growing global competition, and technological developments, which have jointly contributed to greater uncertainty and volatility of enterprise management processes. However, as described in previous chapters, supply chain configuration, which forms the backbone of supply chain management, remains a long-term decision limiting the supply chain’s ability to react to changing customer demand and operating environments.
