Knowledge transfer into the retail operations industry: a case study

In this presentation we’ll overview a series of research projects conducted together with the largest Portuguese food retailer. The scope of these projects relate to retail supply chain planning. In particular, the impact of defining key strategic supply chain parameters for each stock keeping unit, such as the case-pack and the logistics flow will be addressed. In both projects, detailed cost models were applied and the positive bottom-line impact was over 3M€.
