This book, written for the logistics manager and researcher, presents a survey of the modern theory and application of logistics. Part I considers the basic performance analysis issues for logistics- both worst-case and average-case techniques are covered. Part II then covers vehicle routing problems, and Part III concentrates on production and inventory problems. Part IV considers hierarchical problems in logistics networks and in particular the integration of different levels of decisions. Finally, Part V looks at case studies in which decision support tools for large-scale logistics applications are developed. As a result, the authors have written a timely and authoritative survey of this field that many practitioners and researchers will find makes an invaluable companion to their work.
