Supply Chain Management

A supply chain is a system of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer. Supply chain activities involve the transformation of natural resources, raw materials, and components into a finished product that is delivered to the end customer.

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods and services. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. Interconnected or interlinked networks, channels and node businesses are involved in the provision of products and services required by end customers in a supply chain.

The research group focus on structuring and improving supply chains’ overall output to the end consumer. This is done via industry focussed projects in order to address unique industry nuances to their customers’ supply chain expectations.

Various research areas are of interest to the group, some developed, while others are for future expansion.
