SCE, SCM, SCP … if you're having trouble keeping supply chain industry terms and acronyms straight, you're not alone. Even experienced logistics professionals sometimes find themselves bewildered by the jargon. To cut through the confusion, Industrial Data & Information Inc. has published The Glossary of Supply Chain Terminology for Logistics, Manufacturing,Warehousing, & Technology.
Author Philip Obal, president of Industrial Data & Information, says he wrote the 218-page book primarily for supply chain professionals, but he believes others will find it useful as well. Though most glossaries are written for a single industry, he says, "[t]his glossary is a multiindustry glossary and helps the systems integrators, IT staff, consultants, executives, new users and expert users as well as supply chain professionals."
Single copies of The Glossary of Supply Chain Terminology for Logistics, Manufacturing,Warehousing, & Technology are available at Amazon.com for $59.95.
