Supply Chain Management

Mission Statement
The rise of global markets and increasingly virtual companies has focused both management and academic attention on competition among supply chains. The Supply Chain Management Department considers the operational challenges of managing product, information, and financial flows across organizations and customers. We seek papers that present leading-edge research on this rapidly evolving topic. The possible paper topics are vast – for example:

  • Inventory management
  • Supply chain coordination
  • Integrated supply chain planning
  • Sourcing relationships and strategy
  • Supply chain design and facility location
  • Organization of the supply chain function
  • Managing product variety in supply chains
  • Coordination of product and supply chain design
  • The role of information technology in supply chain coordination
  • Logistics, order fulfillment and distribution
  • Supply chain risk management
  • Channel management.

Manuscripts submitted for review will be expected to display both managerial relevance and scientific rigor. In particular, the problem studied must be firmly grounded in practice and must be motivated by issues faced by a firm or an industry. Research that deals with more than one entity is encouraged. Research focused on traditional operations topics such as shop floor scheduling, quality control, manufacturing flexibility will not be considered unless a compelling connection to supply chain management is provided. All research methods will be considered, but manuscripts must pass the highest standard of scientific rigor in terms of methods and analysis.
