Special Issue-Applications of reference models for supply-chain integration Thumbnail


Hing Kai Chan


The Special Issue of Production Planning & Control, 2014 reflects the most recent advances on reference models in industrial and supply-chain applications. Liu and co-researchers study the impact of additive manufacturing (AM) in the aircraft spare parts industry, with an emphasis on reducing the cost of holding safety inventory. Thunberg and Persson aim to develop such a logistics framework via a case study approach. The objective is relevant for the special issue to fill the gap of missing logistics frameworks for the construction industry. Tseng and co-researchers fill the analytical gap and suggest a rigorous quantitative approach for benchmarking eco-efficiency. However, there are qualitative and quantitative approaches to the eco-efficient criteria. Genovese and co-researchers explore the challenges associated with implementing supplier environmental performance measurement models in context of a global supply chain. Maull, Smart, and Liang begin with the recognition that most research in supply chains is in manufacturing yet most organisations combine product and service in a hybrid composition.
