Abstract

Operations, logistics and supply chains are catalysts in any modern economy and therefore essential contributors to economic prosperity and societal welfare. This chapter briefly sketches the origins of the field and presents a case study on the importance of a balanced logistical organization from the 17th century, after which formal definitions and objectives are introduced. In addition, we discuss relations with other management areas as well as with other science domains such as law or social and political sciences. Topics and concepts in this chapter are discussed at an elementary level, aiming to provide an introduction to the topical field of operations, logistics, and supply chain management.
