PhD projects

High-calibre PhD candidates are invited to join the dynamic research team at the Sustainable Production and Consumption cluster, to work on the following research topics: Project 1: Achieving Sustainability in Supply Chain Operations - Role of Circular Economy and Industry 4.0 Several noticeable researchers and practitioners have recognised the significance and applicability of circular economy and industry 4.0 for supply chain operations and production management at large. However, relatively little is known about the role of circular economy and industry 4.0 in achieving sustainable supply chain operations (e.g. on demand planning, production and manufacturing, logistics, procurement, and inventory). Among the extant research studies published, a few shed light on the link between IoT and SCM and the impact of additive manufacturing on supply chain operations, processes and performances. This project aims to research and respond to questions - what is the role of circular economy and industry 4.0 in developing sustainable supply chain operations. Project 2: Impact and Use of Social Media in Developing Sustainable Logistics and Supply Chain Operations This project aims to research and respond to a topical question - what is the impact of using social media in developing sustainable logistics and supply chain operations. Within business organisations, social media has transformed the way employees connect, communicate and collaborate in order to exchange information and knowledge across intra- and inter-organisation and across different regions. This social media practice offers new implications for innovating logistics and supply chain operations. The answer to this proposed question will support in redefining how supply chain businesses relate to customers, suppliers and other key stakeholders in not only a single supply chain, but network of supply chains. Research in this area will lead to understanding new collaboration best practices and operational challenges in the supply chain management discipline. Project 3: Assessing Sustainability of Business Analytics and Supply Chain Analytics - A Systems Dynamic Approach Businesses and supply chain organisations, using analytical different methods, assess their past performance to gain insights and drive their business planning for a better future. This project aims to investigate the use of systems dynamic approach to understand how business organisations assess and conceptualise their development over time. The purpose is to also explore ways to identify the risks and help predict the potential risks throughout the supply chain.
