The delivery of services and products within a sector is always in the context of a supply chain.
The way different functional units—whether internal or external to an organisation—along that supply chain interact can significantly impact productivity, efficiency and innovation on projects.
There are various levels at which the supply chain can be analysed and our Centre members investigate:
- organisation workflow management
- inter-organisational relationships
- holistic industrial networks and systems.
The supply chain ecology is considered through topics such as:
- industrial organisational economics
- collaborative practice
- the nature of work.
