While several supply chain management texts contain a small group of case studies, there has been no single reference solely devoted to a set of supply chain management cases for professors and their students. This contributed casebook fills the gap, offering faculty and students an extensive set of concise and focused cases covering a broad range of modern SCM practices. Drawing on his extensive network of practitioners, Chuck Munson presents more than 20 cases, each with more content, data, and background than cases typically presented in textbooks. Munson’s cases address every functional aspect of supply chain management, including: 

  • Procurement

  • Supply chain design

  • Warehousing and logistics

  • Transportation

  • Supplier management

  • Distribution management

  • Supply chain strategy

  • Inventory control

  • Information technology

  • Pricing

  • Forecasting

  • Demand management

  • Supply chain risk

  • Supply chain coordination

  • This text’s qualitative cases are supported by relevant discussion questions and sample responses; its quantitative cases are supported by completed numerical solutions, and, where applicable, associated spreadsheets.
