Our research domain encompasses managerial decisions regarding the design and operation of the supply chain, in a broad sense. This includes the optimal deployment of resources, process optimization, and the coordination of individual processes along the supply chain so as to maximize overall performance. Transportation and inventory management are among the key processes in this context. Advances in information technology are changing the underlying economics and enable novel solutions.
In our research, we seek to combine scientific rigor and managerial relevance, with the aim of obtaining novel insights into relevant supply chain related issues. Our research approach relies on quantitative modeling and analysis, using operations research techniques.
