Does your company find itself challenged by issues of delivery service, while at the same time experience having "too much in stock"? Or would you like to test ideas for new ways of designing/driving/optimising your supply chain - new supply channels, new distribution channels, lead time reduction, web distribution, Supply Chain 4.0 and digitalisation - but lack the resources to analyse the challenges and find solutions based on solid business and supply chain know-how as well as employment of the latest technologies?
In a supply chain project, the company will gain insight into how customer needs match the supply chain capability, lead time, production capacity, etc. During the course of the project, analyses and mappings will be made and subsequently used to define possible solutions in collaboration with the company. If relevant, it will be possible to test and qualify potential solutions in one of our labs, for instance through modelling and simulation.
The objective is that, after the project, the student will be able to communicate to supply chain managers and practitioners in a relevant and professional manner about a supply chain challenge. The communication aims to make probable the proposed solutions and the feasibility of possible technical or technological solutions as well as the financial and business-related consequences of completing the project.
