Bridging Industry, Students & Faculty

Developing meaningful coursework.

Exploring innovative approaches towards

operational improvement.

Creating venues for collaboration among

firms, students and faculty around the state

and across the globe.



    For over twenty-nine years the Dauch Center for the Management of Manufacturing Enterprises (DCMME) and the Global Supply Chain Management Initiative (GSCMI) Center has been the focal point within the Krannert School of Management for promoting education, research and industrial engagement with those interested in operations management, manufacturing management, and supply chain management.

    The Center accomplishes this through various conferences, student competitions, and company projects that create venues for collaboration between firms, students and faculty around the state and across the globe.

    The Global Supply Chain Management Initiative and the Dauch Center for the Management of Manufacturing Enterprises provide current and new partners, students and faculty the synergies of two organizations working together with a shared support staff and a common structure. The goals of both are aligned and allow for opportunities for co-programs available to students and partners involved in either center according to their specific interest in manufacturing or supply chain.
