It provides a wide overview of relevant supply chain concepts and sets out the challenges that need to be overcome, in order to find practical ways of implementing these in a real company situation. Readers are continuously asked to reflect on the choices they make, thus experiencing first-hand the many challenges that good and effective supply chain management presents.  A key text for students on supply chain management BScs and MScs as well as background reading for students using The Fresh Connection business simulation game.                                                            A book by Ed Weenk. 

Using The Fresh Connection - Professor Nicolai Rassolov, has mentored student teams in the APICS Canadian Case Study Competition from 2014 to 2018. His strudent teams have regularly taken top spots in the Canadian and global challenges. “It helped me to build the course that provided in the theoretical knowledge and the practical application of that knowledge, directly in the classroom and simulation. And it helped students who had no experience in supply chain management to understand the concept and to understand how things work together.” Read more here
