The Enterprise Engineering and Policy Laboratory of the School of Public Policy holds a workshop, “Supply Chain Management and Advanced Planning and Scheduling,” July 31 and Aug. 1 at National Tsing Hua University in the Science Park City of Hsinchu, Taiwan.

Sponsored by the Boeing Company, the workshop focuses on supply chain integration from a business-to-business e-commerce perspective, and supply chain management from a decision support perspective. It includes overviews of existing supply chain solutions and case studies that demonstrate how solutions are being integrated into U.S. aerospace companies.

As the field of enterprise computing merges with the field of decision support systems, primarily through supply chain management systems, this workshop strives to introduce participants to key issues in supply chain management. Sessions will demonstrate how business-to-business e-commerce is transforming supply chain integration and management; how new supply chain solutions interact with back office systems; how advanced planning and scheduling is implemented in the new supply chain solutions; how supply chain systems collaborate with suppliers through trading exchanges and business-to-business portals; and how a large aerospace organization is managing its supply chain.

Don Imholz, vice president for aircraft and missiles information, systems, and e-commerce at Boeing Aircraft and Missiles, delivers the keynote address. Other speakers include representatives from the Boeing Company; BroadVision Inc.; ILOG Inc.; Ryder Aerospace; IDS Scheer Inc.; SupplySolution Inc.; and PROMATIS Corporation.
