This research program investigates the systems underpinning regional and global supply chains, aiming to bolster their resilience, efficiency, and sustainability. It studies the impact of demand and supply shocks, like pandemics and economic shifts, formulating strategies to mitigate these effects.
The program explores how emerging technologies as well as existing technologies like blockchain can transform supply chain management, increasing transparency and efficiency. It also delves into the management of complex systems, focusing on strategies for optimization and improved performance.
A key aspect of the research is the concept of minimum viable systems, examining how supply chains can maintain operations amidst adverse conditions, such as pandemics, environmental disasters, or warfare.
This program aims to enhance our understanding of supply chain resilience and efficiency, providing strategies for more robust and sustainable supply chains in a volatile world.
