Trial lecture for appointment as associate professor - Eva Johansson

Welcome to attend Eva Johansson's trial lecture for appointment as associate professor on February 25th, 2 pm - 3 pm in E1405 (Gjuterisalen), JTH!

The lecture's titel is: Supply chain design during new product development

Abstract

In many industries, large structural changes affecting the supply chain have taken place over the last decades, for example a greater number of product variants, more customisation, modularisation and outsourcing trends, and global suppliers have become ever more involved in new product development. This has led to many different requirements on the supply chain and if these requirements are not dealt with in coordination with suppliers, industrial engineers and design engineers, there is a risk of sub optimisation. In addition, companies have much to gain from shortening the new product development time to reach the market early with new technology and products. The structural changes affecting the supply chain and the trend towards shorter new product development time have altered the conditions for supply chain design and underlined the importance of integrating supply chain design during new product development. The lecture will present examples of challenges related to supply chain design during new product development but also tools for dealing with these challenges.
