Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: "The present book focuses on the application of operational research and mathematical modelling techniques to logistics and supply chain management (SCM) problems. The authors performed a substantial revision of the 1st edition and included a number of new subjects . . The book is carefully written and is an important reference for readers with a solid background in probability and optimisation theory . . the present book should be seen as a valuable guide describing techniques that can be applied or adapted to real-life situations."
