Lunchmeeting about the EU SELIS project
Larissa started the presentation with an introduction about the project. The main topic of interest was: reliability in transport networks.
The first question she asked the audience was: "how do we measure reliability in transport networks?" Do we look at agreed delivery times? Do we look at scheduled delivery times? In order to analyse reliability in transport networks a study have been done to the performance of the container supply chain. Interesting findings have been found which can be applied in the real world of business.
Donald Baan said that the Port of Rotterdam played an important role in creating living labs. With the help of students, PhD candidates, and business a very interesting consortium was working on the project. Donald explained that the main goal of the project was to create a theoretical overview of supply chain reliability and to apply this knowledge in real-life cases. Hereby the bridge between theory and practice is made.
