Thematic Session: “Managing disruptions in sustainable supply chains”

4th International Conference on Information Systems, Logistics and Supply Chain (ILS 2012), 26th -29th August 2012 - Quebec (Canada) 

https://www.cirrelt.ca/ILS2012

In today’s economic context, supply chains are prone to high levels of turbulence and uncertainty since the customer order fulfillment process is no longer controlled by a single, integrated organization, but by a number of decentralized and independent firms very often located all around the world that collaborate together. This has contributed to enhanced risks and vulnerabilities (i.e. disruptions) in the supply chain. These disruptions come in a variety of forms: technological, natural disaster, terrorism, etc. On the other hand, together with the international community’s increased attention on environmental impact of production and service operations, consumer behavior has begun to change: consumers have started to assess the environmental impacts of the products and services they buy. Hence, an important way of progress for industrial organization is to adopt socially responsible and green supply networks. Under this context, logistics and supply chain management under sustainability constraints can be understood as a decision-making process in which social, environmental and economic goals have to be achieved simultaneously.

The purpose of this session is to advance knowledge and management practice on supply chain approaches to managing sustainability and responding to major disruptions. The discussion will be focused on strategic, tactical and operational decision-making. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Green supply chains: modeling and performance metrics
  • Social impact of logistics decisions: modeling and performance metrics
  • Integrated modeling of social, environmental and economic metrics for logistics and operations management
  • Modeling of sustainable issues in globalized supply chain management
  • Management of disruptions in supply chains
  • Re-location decisions due to major disruptions
  • Integrated analysis of sustainable SC performance under major disruptions
  • Applications on services and manufacturing
  • Case studies
