The Research Center for Operations Management invites you to their symposium discussing supply chain design, on October 23 in Leuven.

Nowadays, supply chain design is breaking out of the modeler’s and analyst’s room. Supply chains are interacting in a complex world and therefore new supply chain design options, as well as significant supply chain changes, can only be accepted and effective if they are anchored and supported by all the stakeholders involved. These stakeholders' expectations are not only related to maximizing profits or minimizing costs, they are also related to sustainability, humanity and cooperation. Designing such supply chains requires innovative methods to take a broader base of stakeholders and their conflicting objectives into account. Thus, we need to push the boundaries of the traditional models on supply chain design.

At this symposium, several international researchers from MIT Sloan School of Management, INSEAD, Politecnico di Milano and KU Leuven will share their findings on supply chain design for different industrial applications. These applications will include vaccine, humanitarian, closed-loop and spare parts supply chains.
