Paper

Measuring supply chain performance
Year: 
1999

Last week I conducted another Interview for the empirical part of my research. And we also discussed how to measure performance within the SC. As it turns out, multiple measures, namely service, cost, working capital are used. Sadly in literature many authors still focus on a single measure only and I wanted to know more about it. So I read an article by B. Beamon (Measuring Supply Chain Performance) to get an overview over performance measures used and how to select the right one(s).

Modeling uncertain Forecast Accuracy in Supply Chains with Postponement
Year: 
2009

LeBlanc, Hill and Harder emphasis the uncertainty in forecast accuracy in their 2009 paper. And therefore address a huge gap in current SCRM research.

Paper

Hedging against disruptions with ripple effects in location analysis
Year: 
2012

I have read several articles by Mark Daskin (also reviewed another one here). So with him on the author list of today’s paper I think one can expect a clearcut research question, some kind of mathematical model, a fitting solution method and a definite answer to the underling problem. Well, let’s have a look!

Paper

Supply chain migration from lean and functional to agile and customised
Year: 
2000

I have been reading a lot of interesting articles lately, hence I could not post as often as I wanted. I found an article by van der Vorst and Beulens (2002; “Identifying sources of uncertainty to generate supply chain redesign strategies”) which opens a new perspective on the SCRM issue. I am going to publish a review later this week and link it here.

Paper

Dealing with supply chain risks: Linking risk management practices and strategies to performance
Year: 
2012

Agility and robustness are the concepts of choice if you want to reduce supply chain risks. In their upcoming paper (Dealing with supply chain risks: Linking risk management practices and strategies to performance) Andreas Wieland and Carl Marcus Wallenburg analyze the effects of both of these concepts on customer value and business performance.

Paper

Models for production planning under uncertainty: A review
Year: 
2006

Today will be a one-article-long-excursion in the world of production planning models.
Supply chain management of course should take a high level view of the supply and demand networks, nonetheless there is probably no supply chain which will work without physical products and most even have one or more at their core.

So production planning is a key part of a companies success.
