The second day has been a great day at the CSCMP conference.
I started with the Opening Ceremony moderated by Rick Blasgen, he and Bob Silverman and Donald Biggs (Learn, Network, Have fun) introduced this years theme (Learn, Lead, Succeed) and the keynote speakers.
This is the second contribution to my series on doctoral dissertations on Supply Chain Risk Management. An immense effort and dedication is spent on these works only to find the results hidden in the libraries. So the goal is raise interest in their research.
In the following I summarize the major points of the article “Responsive supply chain: A competitive strategy in a networked economy” by Gunasekaran, Lai and Cheng (2008).
Responsive Supply Chain (RSC)
The authors define a RSC to contain both aspects of Agile Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management. They argue, that both complement each other in the objective to improve organizational competitiveness.
