2013 GSCMI Spring Conference

For over twenty years the DCMME/GSCMI Centers have 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. This long standing history has bred a rich tradition of developing innovative education programs, exploring creative approaches towards operational improvement and creating venues for collaboration between industry, students and faculty around the state and across the globe

Partnering with organizations, companies, non-for-profit as well as governmental and economic development agencies has allowed our Center to create the essential linkages that foster innovation, develop rich insights and enable us to accomplish our mission of celebrating the vitality of operational excellence and importance of a strategic supply chain view. Should your firm or organization desire to become an important part of this mission, you may want to consider what roles suit your interests most meaningfully
