Ausgehend vom Toyota Produktionssystem, haben Lean Management Ansätze eine große Verbreitung weit über die Automobilindustrie hinaus erfahren. Zahlreiche Autoren beschreiben Vorgehensweisen, um die bei Toyota bewährten Methoden und Werkzeuge auf das eigene Unternehmen zu übertragen. Ziel ist jeweils das schlanke Unternehmen, das durch kontinuierliche Verbesserungen Verschwendung reduziert und aus einer kundenorientierten Perspektive Wert generiert. Vor dem Hintergrund einer zunehmenden Auflösung unternehmerischer Grenzen und der wachsenden Bedeutung von unternehmensweiten und -übergreifenden Kooperationsbeziehungen wird mit der vorliegenden Arbeit das Ziel verfolgt, ein umfassendes Verständnis zu schlanken, wertschaffenden Kooperationsbeziehungen zu gewinnen und Gestaltungsempfehlungen abzuleiten. Hierzu werden aus einer Perspektive der individuellen Ebene im Unternehmen Annahmenmodelle zur Lean Implementierung in Kooperationsbeziehungen und zu wertschaffenden, d. h. verschwendungsarmen Interaktionen abgeleitet. Die Entwicklung der Annahmenmodelle erfolgt dabei als Mikrofundierung ressourcen-, beziehungs- und wissensorientierter Ansätze, indem die soziale Austauschtheorie zur Fokussierung der individuellen Ebene integriert wird. Basierend auf einer konstruktivistischen Erkenntnis- und Wissenschaftstheorie, wird für die Hauptuntersuchung dieser Arbeit zunächst ein Erhebungsworkshop konzipiert, der Elemente der moderierten Gruppen- und Einzelbefragung kombiniert. Anschließend werden sechs Einzelfallstudien in Industrieunternehmen durchgeführt, bevor in einer integrierenden Fallstudie die Ergebnisse zusammengefasst und sowohl qualitativ als auch quantitativ analysiert werden. Diese Arbeit gibt wertvolle Hinweise für Führungskräfte, die in die Steuerung schlanker Kooperationsbeziehungen eingebunden sind. Gleichzeitig findet die Wissenschaft insbesondere im Bereich der sogenannten Mikrofundierung zahlreiche Anknüpfungspunkte.

Boyer/Verma's breakthrough text meets today's student and instructor's needs and redefines the marketplace. Their text is briefer than most, taking all of the vital core concepts and building upon them with current and fresh examples. The authors understand the importance of striking a balance by creating a book that does an even better job at covering the core concepts while also providing customers with a new product that fully addresses and approaches this course area from today's teaching and learning perspectives and actual business practices. The three unifying themes throughout the book are Strategy, Global Supply Chain, and Service Operations. Strategy will serve as an overarching framework and will be used in each chapter to present students with an alternative approach to specific challenges. The authors uses examples from non-US companies and/or organizations in each chapter to incorporate Service Operations in the book. They also show that even some of the largest manufacturing companies today have extensive service activities such as customer support and product development. The Global Supply Chain theme will allow students to see how products move through different companies and countries with Boyer/Verma's use of real world examples throughout his text. In addition the robust Cnow course allows instructors and students to go beyond the printed text to get the most from this exciting operations management program.

RFID technology presents a great potential for creating competitive advantage. By automating and simplifying data collection, it lets users more accurately track assets and monitor key indicators, which in turn gives greater visibility to the operations. However, the benefits received from this technology will be determined by how well it is integrated with the business processes and overall information flow. Because of the fact that the decision to deploy RFID technology in an enterprise is a business decision instead of a technology decision, cost-benefit analysis is a key component of this decision. If an RFID deployment cannot be justified in terms of its economic value to the company, it is not likely to help the company; and consequently, it is not likely to remain a viable deployment over the long term. The Value of RFID describes the business value of RFID and explains the costs and benefits of this technology comprehensively. Different investment evaluation models are proposed to use in various application areas. Techniques to guide the selection of appropriate implementation levels and to handle uncertainty and risk in RFID are explained. Written for researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, and lecturers working in the field of RFID and supply chain management, readers will learn evaluation practices for RFID investment for different application areas. The book also guides managers in making to accurate decisions on RFID investment to maximize the return.
