Young Supply Chain Innovator’s competition is one of the top draws at the online event
The pandemic has made it quite a challenge for global businesses to maintain, innovate and strengthen supply chains. To address these hurdles, Techno India University has organised the global summit ‘Supply Chain Resilience’, to be held today and tomorrow, where delegates of national and international repute will deliver lectures.
The Centre of Excellence of Supply Chain and Analytics at Northern University, Dhaka, which is being developed as a collaboration between Techno India University and the Centre for Research in Materials Management, will also be announced at the summit.
“This summit is one of its kind, bringing in global leaders from industry and academia for solutions to revamping the supply chains to tide over this pandemic. During the two-day summit, global leaders, researchers, faculty members and students will engage themselves to evolve sustainable solutions for emerging supply chains,” said Goutam Sengupta, vice-chancellor of Techno India University.
Arup Raha, former Air Chief Marshal, delivered the inaugural address, followed by a lecture by Malay Chandan Mazumdar, the national president of the Indian Institute of Materials Management.
Today’s speakers are Satish Kalokhe, president of the Quality Circle Forum of India; Manas Chatterji, professor at the School of Management, Binghamton University, State University of New York; and Leopoldo Eduardo Cárdenas-Barrón, professor at the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, School of Engineering and Sciences, Mexico.
At 5pm today, there will be a panel discussion on ‘Building Supply Chains for a better world: Learnings from the Pandemic’.
Apart from the lecture series, the summit will also hold a Young Supply Chain Innovator’s competition on May 16, where industry professionals and researchers in the field of supply chain management from across the globe will propose case studies on improvements brought about in supply chain or related areas.
