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… Expand

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. TheExpand
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. Expand
Analysis of transport services based on intelligent goods
Purpose of this paper: The purpose of the first part of the paper is to identify a set of services that potentially can be provided by intelligent goods, and to show what is needed, from a functionalExpand


Manufacturing networks and supply chains : An operations strategy perspective
A typology for the analysis of network systems resulting in four basic network configurations is presented and can be used as a foundation for further research in the context of integrating manufacturing network and supply chain theory. Expand
Strategic value of RFID in supply chain management
Abstract At present, a gap exists between the actual and potential values of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in industry. In recent years, academic researchers have recognised theExpand
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 forExpand
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.

Determining technology trends and forecasts of RFID by a historical review and bibliometric analysis from 1991 to 2005
Abstract Radio frequency identification (RFID) has been identified as one of the ten greatest contributory technologies of the 21st century. This technology has found a rapidly growing market, withExpand
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, AutomaticExpand
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 toExpand
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 ofExpand
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 completeExpand
Exploring problems related to the materials planning user environment
It is shown how different materials planning methods perform differently in various user environments, based on a survey of 153 manufacturing and 53 distributing companies in Sweden. Expand
