This is a great book. Perfect for advanced MBA/ intorductory PH.D course. Succinct but does not skip steps. Good exercises and excellent inclusion of nontraditional topics like discrete choice.
Highly informative book, especially for supply chain professionals. The content is very well written. Each theorem is explained in detailed with supporting examples, that provides the reader a good understanding of the topic, especially Multi-echelon inventory modelling. Overall a very nice book which is easy to understand.
Good as new. Great book. BTW, professor Snyder is an enthusiastic man.
Great book. Everything thoroughly explained, making this book easy to understand even when self-studying.

This book depicts the core theories indispensable to understand the SC management. I would definitely recommend it to any one who really want to have a deeper insight in the basis of all the formulas we use to make SC decision.
