On Wednesday, January 24, 2018, the MIT SCALE Global Network hosted the 10th Annual SCALE Connect Conference Research Expo. Over 200 supply chain master's students presented digital posters of their research projects to more than 200 visiting supply chain professionals and influencers. On display were presentations from the MIT SCALE Centers in Spain, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Latin America, and the host MIT CTL.
The wide variety of topics in the student presentations speaks to the diverse nature of modern supply chain. For example, some students from Luxembourg presented on Sustainability and Carbon Tracking Models; students from Malaysia presented on Impact of Lead Time Variability on Supply Chain Performance; and students from Spain presented on Anti-Counterfeiting in Pharmaceutical Supply Chain.
Once again, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) - Greater Boston Inc. hosted a Best Poster Competition. This year’s top prize went to MIT SCM students Federico Laino and Evan Humphrey for their poster, “Foresight is 20/20: Improving Forecast Accuracy Through Demand Sensing.”
