  1. The Missing Links

    The Missing Links by Caroline Mondon is a unique supply chain management mystery novel. It follows a small furniture company whose owner has died under suspicious circumstances, leaving his musician daughter in charge. The business newcomer encounters a multitude of problems–high work-in-progress inventory, unsafe working conditions, conflicts between two in-house factions, longstanding customers beginning to withdraw their business, and increased competition. Can the factory ever be profitable again? The work follows the journey of the company to utilize industry standards, including total quality, lean, total productive maintenance, flow management, as well as the newest demand driven methodologies that are changing modern supply chain management.

    Written by an award-winning French author, and President of Fapics, the French Association of Supply Chain Management, this book introduces the effectiveness and simplicity of new demand driven methodologies (DDMRP), along with total quality, lean, TPM, and flow management. It ties in perfectly with the Demand Driven Institute’s certification programs.
