Supply Chain Network Competition: Advances in Models, Methods, and Applications

Thanks to INFORMS for already putting up the program for the San Francisco INFORMS Conference.

I was asked by Professor Vladimir Boginski to organize a session as part of the Network Optimization cluster, which I did.

The title of the session that I organized is:  Supply Chain Network Competition: Advances in Models, Methods, and Applications.

There are 4 papers in this session with the first one being: Supply Chain Network Competition with Information Asymmetry in Quality and Minimum Quality Standards. This paper is a paper that I wrote with my doctoral student, Dong "Michelle" Li, and which was just recently published in the journal Computational Management Science, but with an expanded title.

The second paper is this session will be presented by Dr. Patrick Qiang. and is entitled:  The Closed-Loop Supply Chain Network with Competition and Design for Remanufactureability  This paper was recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Cleaner Production.

The third paper will be presented by Professor Min Yu and is based on joint work  with our collaborator at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, Professor Jonas Gloden. The title is: Supply Chain Network Sustainability Under Competition and Frequencies of Economic Activities. This paper was also recently published in Computational Management Science with an expanded title.

The last paper in this session, Supply Chain Supernetwork Model with Suppliers' Risk Diversification,  will be given by Professor June Dong in collaboration with Professor Jun Ma.

We will also be presenting our latest research  on our NSF-funded Future Internet Architecture project at this conference, but on that Wednesday.

This INFORMS conference will be a wonderful venue to reconnect with many former doctoral students, collaborators, and colleagues from around the globe. And who can resist San Francisco!
