Über dieses Buch

This book combines, for the first time, the operations management and operations research concepts in lean and agile supply chain management (SCM) for achieving decreased uncertainty, increased productivity, and sustainability through the use of quality engineering techniques (QETs).

The book serves as a beneficial supplementary read for supply chain management and logistics courses in operations management/operations research for industrial engineering or management departments as the book uses practical examples of QET applications in SCM in a variety of industries, such as manufacturing, international shipping, and services.

By reading this book, a wide range of audiences from general readers to students in industrial engineering or management fields will learn practical skills that can be utilized in the application of quality engineering techniques in lean and agile SCM.

Chapter 1. A Review of the Basic Concepts
Abstract
This chapter aims to present an overview of the basic concepts in supply chain management. The main domains of supply chain management and the required specifications of each approach for analyzing each strategic issue have been reviewed. In this chapter, the following reviews have been done:
  • Lean and agile supply chain management separately and in combination.
  • The application of operations management and operations research in supply chain management.
  • The relationship between quality engineering techniques and supply chain management elements.
  • The studies assessment related to the impact of supply chain management on the triple main goals (uncertainty, productivity, and sustainability).
In the next step, the last advanced models in lean and agile supply chain management have been reviewed. Finally, after expressing the research questions, the most important issues of the project have been declared (research novelties), and the application of quality engineering techniques to achieve the triple main goals for the direct or indirect format has been defined. The research frame related to the novelty of the project has been added at the end of this chapter.

Chapter 2. Applied Methodology in the Research
Abstract
This chapter presents the theoretical and practical research methods. The research limitation has been explained in the next step. The statistical population of the research has been defined, and the sample specifications in the manufacturing industries and services sections have been described with suitable graphs. Then, data collection tools, validity, and reliability have been explained. Finally, the information analysis method has been expressed. Although the chapter information has been a little information regarding other chapters, it is important to understand the research structure. Indeed, this chapter shows how to gather the beneficial and precise information needed to form the proposed model.

Chapter 3. Proposed Approach with the Comprehensive Details
Abstract
This chapter presents the vital part of the research. The obtained results are in the form of two matrices including manufacturing industries and services sections. The first step has been dedicated to data analyses and finding the best quality engineering techniques for supply chain management components in the manufacturing industries and services sections. Maximized productivity has been divided into two categories. Firstly, finding the best solution in lean supply chain management components and relevant data analyses in numerical format for the manufacturing industries and services sections using operations research is the vital part of the chapter. Finding the best status in agile supply chain management components and relevant data analyses in descriptive format for the manufacturing industries and services sections (with direct use of quality engineering techniques) is the second part of the chapter. The maximized sustainability with direct use of quality engineering techniques by introducing the external and internal stabilizers is the third part of the chapter. The minimized uncertainty with direct use of operations research is the pre-final part of this chapter. Discussion of the research outcome in the obtained results is the final section.

Chapter 4. Results of Implementing the Approach in the Organization
Abstract
This chapter presents the recapitulation of the study’s findings in the first step. The introduction of the final approach or model for the manufacturing industries and services section is the most important part of the chapter. Indeed, the final approach or model in each category has been introduced separately. The calculations in the data reliability and the relevant procedure belonging to the validity of the proposed approach or model are the next step. The mathematical calculations of Cpmk (Process Capability Index) in managing the main goals in SCM according to the relevant Cpmk average before and after the implementation of the research model in SCM are the research outcome. This part is the most important aspect of the project that has assessed the vital value of the research. Discussion of the findings from a total perspective and some recommendations for future research is the final part.

Chapter 5. The Perspective of Quality Engineering Techniques in Supply Chain Management Future
Abstract
This chapter aims to give a perspective of quality engineering techniques in supply chain management future. Readers need to understand the future requirements in supply chain management, and the changing can affect the relationship between quality engineering techniques and supply chain management components. Indeed, this chapter wants to remember to be flexible and ready to deal with each unpredictable change in the world, regional, and national occurrences. The best advantage of this chapter is to open the door between quality engineering techniques and other fields in engineering and science. This chapter surprisingly connects quality engineering techniques and strategic scientific topics in today's industrial world such as quality management, critical success factors, circular supply chain management, digitalization, and fuzzy techniques in supply chain management.
