The Missing Links: A Demand Driven Supply Chain Detective Novel
By Caroline Mondon July 2016, 300 pp., ISBN: 978-0-8311-3607-9, $34.95
This utterly unique how-to supply chain management industry guide is written as a detective novel to engage readers. The book builds suspense around the mysteries and conflicts of its main characters at the same time that it reveals the problems threatening to undermine the small factory where they all work. The Missing Links takes a case study of a small factory whose owner has passed away under suspicious circumstances, leaving his daughter in charge. She encounters a multitude of problems—high work-in-progress inventory, poor working conditions, conflicts between two workshops, and longstanding customers leaving because of a decline in product quality. The new shop owner must learn the business and figure out a way to best solve the problems that threaten her company.
The mission of this book is to demonstrate the effectiveness and the simplicity of the new demand driven methodologies (DDMRP). Most common industry standards, such as “total quality,” “lean,” and “total productive maintenance” are included, as well as “flow management.” This book analyzes flow management as one of the “missing links” in mak- ing a company profitable. It also progressively introduces the foundations of the demand driven methodology to respond to the hot topic of variability in modern supply chains. The need to understand the changes in management style necessary to ensure success is described as the second “missing link.” The definition of success is the immediate profitability of the company and the satisfac- tion of its customers, as well as the ability of the CEO to adapt the strategy to embrace new markets to prepare for the future and to motivate employees and shareholders.
FEATURES: • Completely unique approach—a cross between a detective mystery and how-to book on supply chain management • Boasts 33 full-color appendices of the standard approaches used in the novel, updated on a regular basis • Ties in perfectly with the CDDP program and certification offered through the Demand Driven Institute • Written by an award-winning author and President of Fapics, the French Association of Supply Chain Management.
TABLE OF CONTENTS: • PART I: Describes the business case associated with a fictional small business • PART II: Analyzes the root causes of the profitability problems faced by the small busi- ness • PART III: Shows how best practices in Demand Driven supply chain management can solve the problems to ensure both profitability and an attractive future for shareholders.

Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)
By Carol Ptak and Chad Smith July 2016, 400 pp., ISBN: 978-0-8311-3598-0, $69.95
In the 1950’s, Joseph Orlicky conceived of a planning method called Material Requirements Planning (or MRP) that changed the world of manufacturing forever. But times have changed—customer tolerance times are much shorter, product variety and complex- ity has increased, and supply chains have spread around the world.
Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) is an emerging, revolutionary method for supply chain planning and execution that effectively brings the 1950s concept into the modern era. The foun- dation of DDMRP is based upon the connection between the creation, protection and acceleration of the flow of relevant materials and informa- tion and return on investment.
Using an innovative multi-echelon “Pull” methodology, it helps plan and manage in- ventories and materials in today’s more complex supply scenarios, with attention be- ing paid to ownership, the market, engineering, sales, and the supply base. It enables a company to build more closely to actual market requirements, and promotes better and quicker decisions and actions at the planning and execution level. Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning is THE definitive work on DDMRP, and will be required as courseware for all those taking the Certified Demand Driven Planner (CDDP) Program.
FEATURES: • THE authoritative work on an emerging methodology (DDMRP) • DDMRP is already being used by some MAJOR Fortune 500 companies • Includes case studies and examples for different sized companies in multiple industries • Offers a link to courseware for the CDDP program, as well as access to certification, where readers can register for the exam • Ptak and Smith are world renowned leaders in the fields of MRP, TOC, Quality Improvement, and Supply Chain Management.

Surviving the Spare Parts Crisis: Maintenance Storeroom and Inventory Control
By Joel Levitt November 2016, 272 pp., ISBN: 978-0-8311-3604-8, $49.95
The maintenance spare parts business is in turmoil because of many factors: 1. Globalization has increased competition; 2. The Internet has caused the disintermediation of parts distribution; 3. Technology in general has caused the rapid obsolescence of machinery and increased the numbers of spare parts needed. The key to uptime in manufacturing is managing risk. This work describes how to evaluate risk in the inventory. It provides dozens of ideas to properly reduce inventory, reduce usage, and save money in parts, all while main- taining service levels. The author, Joel Levitt, shows how the maintenance department can provide better support to purchasing agents and buyers. In
the book, Levitt imparts the knowledge gained while he trained more than 17,000 people in 25 countries who are facing problems with their spare part inventory. This is an ideal resource for maintenance managers, planners, and engineers; parts specialists; supply chain managers; and anyone involved in purchasing.

By Phillip Slater December 2016, 272 pp., ISBN: 978-0-8311-3608-6, $49.95
No previous works have focused on the topic of inventory reduction and opti- mization to the extent that this one does. Spare Parts Inventory Management covers the whole part’s life cycle, from initial purchase to final disposal, and ad- dresses issues throughout, including MRO—maintenance, repair, and overhaul. The author, Phillip Slater, was described in a recent podcast as “truly one of the leaders in the MRO information segment.” Sparesology™ is a term coined by Slater to describe the discipline of opti- mizing the physical, financial, and human resource management processes of spare parts inventory management. Sparesology is much more than just in- ventory optimization. It involves an understanding of the complete “ecosystem” within which spare parts inventory is managed, and seeks to ensure that all factors influencing this management work in concert to achieve an organization’s goals.
TABLE OF CONTENTS: • Ch 1: Establishing Your Spare Parts Management System: What is MRO and Spare Parts?; The #1 Problem with Spare Parts Management; The Big Picture – Putting Spare Parts in Context; Why Spare Parts are Different (than other inventory types); Standard Supply Chain Tools that Don’t Work with (Most) Spare Parts; Financial Con- siderations; Inventory Prevention; Inventory Management Policies. • Ch 2: Best Practice Spare Parts Management: Best Practice Research; The Five Best Practices that Make a Real Difference. • Ch 3: The Spare Parts Management Life Cycle: Creation; Operation; Obsolescence and Disposal. • Ch 4: Implementing Your Spare Parts Management System: How to Go From a Pilot Program to Productive Execution.

Cutting Data for Turning of Steel By Edmund Isakov, 2008, 250 pp., ISBN 978-0-8311-3314-6, $54.95
Machining is one of the most important manufacturing processes, which remove unwant- ed material in the form of chips from a workpiece. Material removal operations are among the most expensive. These high costs put tremendous economic pressures on production managers and engineers as they struggle to find ways to increase productivity. Machining recommendations provided in this book cover turning since it allows removing more mate- rial per unit of time and consuming more power at the rouging operations than end milling, boring, or drilling. Machining recommendations relate to cutting speeds, feed rates, and depth of cuts. Such recommendations depend on the workpiece material properties and the cutting tool material. Workpiece materials described in this book are the most com- monly used grades of carbon, alloy, stainless, tool, and maraging steels. Cutting tool materials are cemented carbides, cermets, and ceramics.
