Two of the papers are accepted in 33rd Annual POMS-Conference, USA
I am thrilled to have this incredible opportunity to be involved in two such high quality research projects. First paper is with my PhD supervisor Prof. Stephen Disney. Here, using value stream maps, we find there are three lead times in a single supply chain echelon: the customer, supplier, and production lead time. There are two replenishment policies; one determines production quantities, the other orders raw material. Our parsimonious model captures the dynamics of both make-to-stock and make-to-order systems.
Second paper is with my PhD co-supervisor Dr Okechukwu Okorie and researchers from University of Texas, Dallas, USA - Dr.Ramesh Subramoniam, Dr. David S. Widdifield, and Dr. Harpreet Singh. In this paper we have worked with industrial collaborations. Using a survey and case study based methodology, we find that digitization reduces the impact of supply chain risks; particularly supply, demand, and information risks. This study provides a reference for managerial decision-making to identify and prioritize digital technologies, their applications, factors involved in their implementation, and future business models
