Real-time Supply Chain Planning and Control – A Case Study from the Norwegian Food Industry

  title={Real-time Supply Chain Planning and Control – A Case Study from the Norwegian Food Industry},
  author={Heidi C. Dreyer and Ragnhild Bjartnes and Torbj{\o}rn H. Netland and Jan Ola Strandhagen},
Supply chain planning and control is about balancing resources and supply with market demand in a supply chain context. Increased focus on supply chain optimisation and need for responsiveness has significantly increased the importance and complexity of this task. Competitiveness today is achieved by demand-driven supply chain planning and control systems, which again require visibility of data and visualisation of appropriate decision information. This paper argues that access to real-time…

Can Innovations in the Supply Chain Lead to Reduction of GHG Emissions from Food Products? A Framework

Innovations among actors in the supply chain of food, enabled by emerging advanced technologies, are resulting in new concepts for planning and control in the field of Supply Chain Management. The

Analysis of Inventory Control Techniques and Study of Non Conventional Parameters

RFID technology is introduced as a realistic technical tool which can help serve the supply chain more efficiently, with better balancing of resources and by acting as a continuous source of information.

Analysis of transport services based on intelligent goods

The paper presents what is needed, from a functional perspective, to implement potential intelligent goods services, and provides an initial analysis of what factors influence where the data and processing necessary for a service should be placed.



Strategic value of RFID in supply chain management


There are a number of compelling reasons to build a strategic supply chain map. However, widely accepted conventions for this kind of mapping do not yet exist. The strategic map provides a tool for

The implications of fit between planning environments and manufacturing planning and control methods

The fit between the planning environment and material and capacity planning on the detailed material planning and shop‐floor planning levels is explained and results show the use of planning methods and their levels of user satisfaction in complex customer order production, configure to orderproduction, batch production of standardized products and repetitive mass production.


Many firms have shifted to response-based supply chain systems instead of traditional push systems. Research results are presented covering a specific type of response-based system, Automatic

Supply chain collaboration: Theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence

Presents a theoretical framework for analysing interorganizational collaboration. Argues that Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) should be viewed as a general approach to

The extended VMI for coordinating the whole supply network

Purpose – To highlight how vendor managed inventory (VMI) can be extended both upstream and downstream in the supply network to co‐ordinate the material and information flows among a number of

Manufacturing Planning and Control Systems

The book is well-known for having the most current coverage available. A "non-numerical" approach is used with thoroughly integrated real applications. The Third Edition will provide complete
