Efficient management of supply chains has become a crucial component in the operations of a modern day enterprise. To remain competitive and profitable in a competitive environment, every organization must operate as a single intelligent enterprise, with every department collaborating toward common goals and objectives. Papers are invited in the general area of supply chain management that address the developments in the state-of-the-art of supply chain management solutions, elaborate on the challenges faced by the industry, and discuss future directions in this field. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) enterprise resource planning, forecasting and demand management, supply chain network design and optimization, strategic and operational planning and scheduling. Application papers offering insights into the interplay between theory and practice in an enterprise setting are particularly encouraged.
