3rd TIIKM World Conference on Supply Chain Management (WCOSM) 2017 Colombo

  • Conference Call
  • TIIKM, Sri Lanka warmly wel­comes you to the 3rd World Con­fer­ence on Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment which is sched­uled to be held on May 1819, 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka at the Taj Samu­dra.

    The 3rd World Con­fer­ence on Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment (WCOSM 2017) aims at bring­ing together lead­ing aca­d­e­mic sci­en­tists, research schol­ars, prac­ti­tion­ers, sup­ply chain exec­u­tives and pro­fes­sion­als to exchange and share their expe­ri­ences and/​or research results on selected aspects of Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment. It also serve as a forum for pre­sent­ing and dis­cussing the most recent inno­va­tions, trends, con­cerns and chal­lenges encoun­tered as well as the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal solu­tions and best prac­tices to be put for­ward in the selected top­ics of Sup­ply Chain Management.

    The pace of dig­i­ti­za­tion of processes and oper­a­tions com­bined with the increase of con­nected objects/​products and final cus­tomers add a sig­nif­i­cant amount of com­plex­ity that just keeps on ris­ing. Although this ever increas­ing com­plex­ity raises chal­lenges lead­ing to rad­i­cally rethink the way sup­ply chains are under­stood and man­aged, it opens up tremen­dous oppor­tu­ni­ties to (re)design and imple­ment inno­v­a­tive strate­gies, tac­tics and oper­a­tions to achieve greater antic­i­pa­tion, bet­ter final cus­tomer expe­ri­ence and over­all sup­ply chain performance.
