The Dynamically Adaptable Supply Chain Logistics (DASHlog) project started in March 2017 and continues previous research with YH Global Supply Chain Co., Ltd. The vision of the project is to enable supply chain management organisations to improve organisational performance by adapting quickly to new requirements, and systematically supporting project variations more closely in IT and operations.
This will be achieved by investigating to what extent a company can operate in “different modes” for both the current operations and IT systems. Switching between modes will be guided by an evaluation engine and a data analytics component.
Overall, the project aims to deliver a demonstrator prototype software system showing how and when to switch between modes, and documented operational procedures showing how operations can be modified to take advantage of the new modes.
