In other disciplines, researchers can use laboratories to test and validate their research, while in supply chain and operations, the companies are the labs themselves.

Supply Chain Management is not just about planning. If information systems are recognized as enablers within Supply Chain Management, new opportunities will arise.

Christel Verlijsdonk
Management Assistant

I recognize themes and challenges from my time in business and still feel a great interest to these topics.

Sarah Gelper
Research Director Data2Move

We create these events as an open platform where members can share problems and solutions with each other without commercial interest. Together, these challenges are tackled and research is furthered.

Laura Genga
Research Director Data2Move
Resilience is a crucial challenge for nowadays supply chains. A key factor to enhance supply chain resilience is to ensure transparency within the chain, to allow every node to make informed decisions and appropriate reactions to mitigate the impact of occurred disruptions.
Albert Schrotenboer
Research Director Data2Move
My research generally focuses on the entities that move in supply chain management. I design efficient and practical solutions for integrated decision-making (e.g., warehousing, transportation, inventory) by mixing classic optimization with data analytics/machine learning concepts.
Remco Dijkman
Research Director EHTC

The EHTC members are leading companies in the high tech industry, enabling us to anticipate on themes and problems of the future. Together, we solve future problems before competitors are even aware of these challenges.

It is not just research between one academic and one person in a company but between the faculty and the whole company, or, even better, the entire ecosystem of companies within the Eindhoven area.

Collaboration is crucial and companies can help each other. The collaboration is about finding the solutions to common problems

Forget about the competition for a moment, and you will see that there is a lot to win.

Edwin Wenink
Network Orchestrator Data2Move

Connecting people from the business and academics and connecting Supply Chains is in the heart of our network.

Winfried Peeters
Network Orchestrator EHTC

It is crucial for companies to keep innovating in supply chain structurally. Just maintenance will not be good enough in the long run.

John van Ginkel
Network Orchestrator Servitization

Firms are eager to discuss servitization, but find it hard to develop an action plan to put servitization into practice. Our ambition is to create awareness (both technical and organizational) and to help firms by gaining, sharing, and developing knowledge.

Corine Legdeur

Strategic decisions impact both the operational and financial performance of the firm. Our research ensures that upper management make sound and informed decisions that lead to positive outcomes.

Geert-Jan Van Houtum
Account Manager

My research is about everything needed to realize high system availabilities of capital goods against a low Total Cost of Ownership. This includes making use of new data and combining AI/data analysis methods with decision support models.

Gizem Korpeoglu
Account Manager

My research focuses on competition and collaboration among supply chain partners and outsourcing innovative solutions to challenging problems.

Ahmadreza Marandi
Account Manager

Academia and industry should join forces to have a deeper understanding of practical problems and solution methods.

In my research, I address decision-making and optimization in urban mobility and logistics, that is moving people and goods within cities. In an urban setting, decisions are needed quickly, subject to many external stakeholders, and highly inter-dependent.

Lijia Tan
Account Manager

My research lives at the boundary of analytical and behavioral disciplines. I investigate human decisions via laboratory and field experiments, field data analysis, and develop models of decision-making to better explain, predict, and improve analytical models and decision support systems.
