Supply Chain Management Challenges and Our Center

Every executive wants to know the recipe to achieve robust supply chain performance across multiple market scenarios and resilience against the myriad of risks that can quickly incapacitate sourcing, production, logistics and distribution activities. At the same time, they are challenged in building operationally excellent processes within the enterprise and across the supply chain for long-term competitive advantage.

Olin Business School’s supply chain management research center, the Boeing Center for Supply Chain Innovation (BCSCI), strives to inform all executives and researchers about the most up-to-date and accurate knowledge on creating excellent operational processes and world-class supply chain capabilities to achieve the robust and resilient performance they strive for.

Our Center research addresses timely operational excellence and supply chain strategy, execution and risk management issues, and it is frequently quoted by the international press. Our work on the Waffle House index is one such example frequently cited in the business press. Read more about 21st Century Supply Chain and Operations (pdf).
