Up to now it is not fully understood how synchronization affects supply chains: Does a spontaneous synchronization also occur in supply chains?If so, what triggers it and how does it influence the achievement of the logistics objectives and the robustness of the processes?
By applying synchronization measures to the models, the thesis will firstly examine the relation between synchronization and the supply chain’s core characteristics (e.g., design, structure, operations and control strategy, arrival times (distribution), processing time (distribution)).
Secondly, it will research the link between synchronization and the supply chain performance (e.g., lateness, inventory levels) and robustness (e.g., deviations in performance due to system disturbances), thus drawing conclusions for the consequences that synchronization has on supply chains.
On these premises, any dissertation paper on this subject should be comprehensive.
There are many topics you can look into and in this post, we propose some strong dissertation topics related to supply chain management, take a look.
Triggers and Effects of Synchronization in Supply Chains – Minimal Model Investigation Synchronization in a broader sense means aligning a certain behavior or state over time.
In the physical world, two systems can spontaneously synchronize with respect to each other even if there are only small physical interactions.
The research interests of the center’s members revolve around two major fields: economics and operations research.
The aim of our research work is to explore the use of the theoretical and empirical results of these two fields to innovate in the transport and logistics area to help improving the competence of the Norwegian industry.
In fact, new research shows that changing only one of these factors actually helps meet that desired goal.
