Praise for SAP SCM: Applications and Modeling for Supply Chain Management

"This should be required reading for any company moving from ERP to an advanced SCM solution. Dan covers the different aspects of SCM and how they fit together. He also explains why you should keep the model simple and not try to model everything in the supply chain. The ′98% solution′ is good enough."
Steve Blair CPIM, Senior System Analyst in a Fortune–500 high tech company

"This excellent, resourceful step–by–step guide is a must–have book for SAP pro–fessionals. The book is not only wide–ranging, but comprehensive on specific SCM topics with something to offer all types of SAP role groups including project managers, executives, developers, consultants, and end–users."
Srini Uppala, SCM Consultant

". . .Dan has dealt comprehensively with supply chain planning and execution components to enrich and elevate the knowledge base for both starters and matured analysts . . .The executive lessons chapter in this book guides decision makers on how to approach product implementation and leverage the best ROI returns to the corporations successfully."
Srinivas Gudipati, Senior Manager, SAP Supply chain Practice, SEAL Consulting Inc.
