View the Factoring Sustainability And Volatility Into Supply Chain Decisions Demo
As supply chains become larger and more complex, organizations must continually evaluate their supply chains based on their strategic goals, as well as tune their designs for dynamic events, such as rapidly fluctuating fuel costs and environmental concerns.
But how do organizations create "what-if" models to balance customer service, costs and carbon emissions to create the most effective mix according to their strategic plan?
MIT's Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL), recognized as an international leader in supply chain education and research, uses Infor SCM Network Design in its research on supply chain design, including how to deal with fuel volatility and reduce carbon emissions.
Listen to our special guest speakers, Dr. Edgar Blanco and Dr. Jarrod Goentzel, research directors at MIT-CTL, as they share their research goals to understand how to measure carbon and energy as a variable in the supply chain as well as identifying practices that improve overall efficiency in supply chain design.
