Safaa Sindi, Michael Roe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Data collection is a fundamentally important element of any supply chain model and this chapter focuses on the decisions made about the data to collect, how this should be done and the implications for the reliability and accuracy of the modelling process. The rationale for adopting the Delphi approach is analysed followed by detailed discussion of the choice of participants, the number of rounds and the overall selection of Delphi type from the large number that are available.
