Research Institute for Supply Chain Management

About us

The Research Institute for Supply Chain Management (RI SCM) tackles research questions concerning the integration of the material, information and financial flows between different companies, which try to act like a single unit (“inter-company Supply Chain”) when fulfilling the consumers' wishes to the highest possible extent, as well as the coordination of several functional departments within a single company (“intra-company Supply Chain”).

In order to cover all aspects of SCM various skills of many scientific areas have to be brought together. Consequently, the institute consists of an interdisciplinary research team bundling the knowledge of professors from three different departments and of further specialists from science and practice.
