ConferencesThe Operations Management Division is involved in organising or contributing to the organisation and delivery of the following international conferences:
- International Symposium of Logistics
- International Conference on Concurrent Enterprising
The International Symposium on Logistics aims to provide a forum for discussion between leading academics, researchers and practitioners who specialise in logistics and to promote excellence in this field. Papers will represent the latest in academic thinking and case examples of successful logistical implementations. The wider audience will therefore benefit from the knowledge and experience of leading practitioners and academics in this area.
The term Concurrent Enterprising is an amalgam which brings together the paradigms of Concurrent Engineering and Extended/Virtual Enterprising: The Concurrent Enterprise is a distributed, temporary alliance of independent, co-operating manufacturers, customers and suppliers using systematic approaches, methods and advanced technologies for increasing efficiency in the design and manufacturing of products and services by means of concurrency, parallelism, integration, standardisation, team work and more for achieving common goals on global markets.
