Managing Resource-Constrained Supply Chains
Dr. Randy Kirchain, Principal Research Scientist, MIT Material Systems Lab (MIT MSL)
MIT MSL is working with industry to identify the materials supply constraints and price fluctuations that could impact the future viability of businesses. Dr. Kirchain will explain how companies can use supply/demand simulations and scenario planning to develop strategies for managing resource-related disruptions and maintaining competitiveness.
Jackie Sturm, VP and GM of Global Sourcing & Procurement, Intel Corporation
How to verify that a supply chain is conflict free –free of minerals mined in countries that violate human rights, for example – is a major issue for many companies. Jackie Sturm will share Intel’s plans to be conflict-free by 2013. The processes Intel has developed for assessing the upstream supply chain and working with suppliers to track and verify materials sources offer valuable lessons for maintaining the integrity of company operations.
Dr. Daniel Navaresse, Global Director Energy & Fluids, Anheuser-Busch InBev
A-B InBev is at the forefront of efforts to improve the management of water resources across the end-to-end supply chain. Dr Navaresse will explain the company's strategy, and how it is developing better ways to mitigate water-related risks in the extended supply chain.
