MIT Supply Chain Management Director Bruce Arntzen discusses risk visualization and Sourcemap [Video]

 

How does a company keep tabs on thousands of suppliers? That’s the question Bruce Arntzen tried to answer when he started the Hi-Viz Research Project. As Executive Director of MIT’s Supply Chain Management Program, Arntzen works with corporations to find innovative solutions to supply chain problems. The idea for the Hi-Viz project came during a 2011 meeting of the Supply Chain Risk Leadership Council. A survey of attendees listed Supply Chain Visibility as the top concern. Why? With thousands of suppliers and sub-suppliers, it can be very time-consuming to find the weakest link in a supply chain. Arntzen’s solution: an automatic visualization of the end-to-end supply chain where the weakest links could be seen in real time. Watch his interview to learn how MIT and Sourcemap developed the first automated risk visualization [more details below the fold].

 

In 2015, the Hi-Viz project is partnering with actuarial data providers to provide predictive risk analytics. Sourcemap is making available inventory risk mapping as part of its enterprise software-as-a-service. Want to get involved? Learn more about the Hi-Viz project, or contact Sourcemap for a demo.

IAP Course Coolnetworking 3.0Coolhunting and Coolfarming through Swarm Creativity

Special Course during January 2013 MIT IAP independent activities period, Jan 9 to 11, 2013. to register send e-mail to pgloor@mit.edu

This course consists of three parts, part I is the foundation for parts II and III, parts can be taken separately.

Course times: Wednesday Jan 9, Thursday Jan 10, Friday Jan 11, 2013: 03-06:00pm

MIT Web Site        

Day 1: I. How to Be an Efficient (Online) Networker

Part I is for everybody who would like to learn how they can be more efficient in their online and face-to-face networking. It consists of the twenty rules for networking, based on 10 years of research analyzing (online) social networks by the instructor.

General networking rules: 2 for personal and 3 for group networksOnline networking rules: 3 for e-mail, 2 for Facebook, 3 for LinkedIn3 face-to-face networking rules

As part of the course, you will create a "virtual mirror" of your own communication behavior, telling you how much of a “star” or a “galaxy” you are, analyzing your own Facebook and e-mail networks. You will use the new Condor 3.0lite, which allows easy download of individual Facebook and E-Mail networks. To experiment with the coolhunting software tools you will need to bring your own laptop with a working WiFi connection. You will get the software on the first course day on a USB memory stick.
