The necessity to collaborate between various companies, sectors, and industries is one of the biggest challenges in order to create a sustainable supply chain. All around us we see new interesting collaborations: for instance, farmers and car industry collaborating on producing and using bio plastics. Until now, analysis of such network collaborations have hardly been studied and underpinned with hard numbers. In this course we learn how to assess collaboration networks in a structured, systematic (quantitative) way.
External factors like regulations, policies, culture, geography and characteristics of sectors are another big influence on the performance of such collaboration networks. We develop a framework which allows to assess the challenges and benefits of such systems.
- How to design supply chain structures based on quantitative analysis
- How to develop frameworks to assess strength and weaknesses of the structures
- How to create sustainability dashboards in order to control the performance
