On Thursday 4th February, Dr Jag Srai will give a presentation on Configuring international supply chains: an integrated operations perspective – findings from research and practice. Businesses have long recognized the importance of an effective supply chain, one that integrates suppliers, enables efficient production and is able to service customers in a timely cost effective manner. The design of the supply network, linking suppliers, producers, distributors with their customers has evolved over the last 25 years from a basic process integration activity, to one of a complex network design task. Globalization, new routes to market and rapid technology change have resulted in changing industry structures, often involving a fragmentation of the traditional supply chain. In his talk, Dr Jag Srai reviews some of the exemplar models identified in our recent research projects within the Centre for International Manufacturing, and how the ‘configuration perspective’ applied across different aspects of the manufacturing value chain can support firms to design radical alternatives to innovation and market supply.

Presentation at 17.30 – 18.30. Refreshments from 17.00 hrs.
