CFP: International Journal of Manufacturing Research (IJMR) - "Industrial Case Studies of Demand-Supply Chain Management"
Special Issue on: "Industrial Case Studies of Demand-Supply Chain Management"
Per Hilletofth, University of Skövde, Sweden
Olli-Pekka Hilmola, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland
The notion that companies have both demand and supply chains, which require active management to maximize organization's effectiveness and efficiency, is well recognized. The demand chain comprises all the demand processes necessary to understand, create, and stimulate customer demand, whilst supply chain contains all the supply processes necessary to fulfill time, accuracy, and quality requirements of customers and the profitably of the supply chain. The need to coordinate these processes and their general management has been emphasized in both the demand and supply chain literature as well as in the emerging demand-supply chain management (DSCM) concept. It has been concluded that there is a lack of real-life based case study research addressing, how the different demand and supply processes influence each other, and how these processes effectively can be coordinated on intra and inter-organizational level. This implies that the concept and application of DSCM is still in its infancy and needs to be researched further from both demand and supply chain perspective. Hence, this special issue is aiming to contribute in the understanding of DSCM by analyzing the concept from a theoretical and practical perspective, determining what are the key principles that characterize the concept as well as to illustrate its appearance in practice. However, our main interest is in industrial case studies, and real-life implementations.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Supply chain management
- Demand chain management
- Demand-supply chain management
- Supply chain design
- Supply chain differentiation
- Supply chain segmentation
- Sourcing systems
- Manufacturing systems
- Distribution systems
- Transportation systems
- New product development
- Market intelligence
- Market segmentation
- Life cycle management
Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was not originally copyrighted and if it has been completely re-written).
All papers are refereed through a peer review process. A guide for authors, sample copies and other relevant information for submitting papers are available on the Author Guidelines page
Full paper due: 31 December, 2010
Notification of acceptance: 15 March, 2011
Final version of the paper due: 31 May, 2011
You may send one copy in the form of an MS Word file attached to an e-mail (details in Author Guidelines) to the following:

ELogistics Infrastructure and Services in The Middle Eastast
Due to the growing link between global supply chains and prime location, GCC countries are currently experiencing a strong demand for logistics services and infrastructure.
The recent explosion of infrastructure projects requires a proper understanding of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, risks, and success factors from the local and global point of view. This Forum aims to bring local and international policy makers, supply chain managers, and logistics managers together, to understand local needs.
This strong association with local projects, participation of the international academic community, and discussions involving local decision makers will undoubtedly set this conference apart from all others. The forum will address subjects related to Abu Dhabi's Master Plan and Economic Vision 2030, customized local requirements of infrastructure projects, and the development of global logistic services. In order to provide delegates with well rounded information and a hands-on grasp of concepts, The Global Logistics Forum will include three workshops involving various visits to significant infrastructure locations, as well as logistics service providers.
The first Global Logistics Forum is part of long-term strategic partnership between Abu Dhabi University and the TU Berlin Chair of Logistics and represents a first step in developing a long term, high quality programme of courses, events and knowledge transfer in the field of supply chain logistics.

On the fifth and final day of the ICIL 2010 conference the schedule was for an excursion to Transpetro's pipeline hub and routing station close to Rio de Janeiro. Transpetro is the logistical arm and fully-owned subsidiary of Petrobras, the formerly state-owned main oil company of Brasil, and they works foremost with the transportation and storage activities around oil and its byproducts, ethanol, biofuels and natural gas.
The excursion included a Q&A with the company's operational management, a tour of the plant's control center and finally a guided car trip around the plant's storage and routing fields. As an added bonus, a visit to CTDUT - the pipeline technology center testing facility and laboratory located on the premises. CTDUT upkeeps test loops for education and development of pig technology (pigs of course being the pipeline inspection gauge machines that travel inside a pipeline to assess the condition of the pipe's structure).
On the whole, and interesting field day by ICIL and Transpetro.

Day three started with ICIIL officer elections and was followed by presentations. Here's some picks from the conference:
- Thomas Makuschewitz presented A MIP for the integrated production and transportation scheduling of an OEM. This system takes network level for scheduling/sequencing by providing visibility for OEMs. The approach can be applied in situations when changes occur in resource availability and due dates.
- Spens and Kovacs raised a very topic question "Back to basics: Is logistics again about cutting costs?"
- Aragao et al's paper presented a case study from Aracruz Celulose – "Standard-hour" as logistics performance evaluation basic for trucks
- Kekäle, Spens and Phusavat's study on hospital inventory management practices – "Understanding the human factor: The key to process improvement in service operations"
We also agreed today that the ICIIL proceedings papers will become publicly available at the ICIIL web site in near future.
