Design and Operation of a Future Hydrogen Supply Chain
Year: 
2006

Increasing oil prices make it more rewarding to look for alternative energy sources to fuel future propulsion.
In the case of the reviewed paper today I selected one of a few papers I recently discovered on this topic. If you like to know more just let me know.The basic assumption of this paper sets hydrogen as the replacement energy storage for oil.

Paper

Supply chain design and multilevel planning - An industrial case
Year: 
2008

The quantification of supply chain planning is the next step in the field of supply chain optimization. After operational and logistical aspects have been modeled and optimized, margins for further improvement remain slim.
Based on this premise the paper I review today suggests and tests several alternative multilevel planning approaches to gain further supply chain improvements by optimizing the mid-term supply chain design.

Paper

The impact of supply chain integration on performance: A contingency and configuration approach
Year: 
2010

An ongoing debate in supply chain management is about the degree to which companies should collaborate with their supply chain partners. In business and research the concept is called supply chain integration and may also be a useful strategy for reducing certain risks. And of course it is an often used strategy in supply chain management in general
Analyzing the effect of supply chain integration on performance therefore is an important issue in SCM research.

Paper

Behavioural Risks in Supply Networks
Year: 
2009

Not only earthquakes and terrorist attacks can lead to supply chain disruptions. Supply chains are also subject to behavioral risks, meaning that participants of the supply chain could exhibit behavior which might be consistent with their goals, but contrary to the goals of the supply chain’s other participants.

Paper

Optimal newsvendor policies for dual-sourcing supply chains: A disruption risk management framework
Year: 
2012

This is the continuation of the Greece week and today I am going to have a look at a mathematical model to capture the effects of dual disruptions in a news-vendor model.

This time the three authors (Xanthopoulos, Vlachos and Iakovou) come from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

Paper

The power of flexibility for mitigating supply chain risks

This article sheds light on the question of how much flexibility is necessary to secure the supply chain against disruption risks.
The paper reviewed today takes a closer look at three supply chain risks: supply, process and demand risks (figure 1).

Paper

Selecting the right planning approach for a product
Year: 
2007

Some weeks ago I wrote about Fisher’s suggestions on how to select the right supply chain for your product. But how to continue from there? How do different products affect the further planning steps needed?
