Logistics Viewpoints

Indeed, by 2002, Best Buy was saying more than half of its customers were checking its website before coming to the store. When Transportation Optimization and New Shopping Behaviors Collide One needs to go back to the early 2000s to see green shoots of modern omni-channel retail.

Fisher’s Supply Chain–Product Match/Mismatch Framework

SCM Research

Extensions of the framework exist, for example by Lee (2002) , who adds a “supply” dimension, and more recently Gligor (2017) , who argues that “benefits generated by perfect supply chain fit might be offset by the resources deployed to achieve that fit” Research presented by Perez-Franco et al. I have used Fisher’s (1997) supply chain–product match/mismatch framework ( What Is the Right Supply Chain for Your Product? ) in my teaching for years!

Not All Digital Twins are Created Equal

DELMIA Quintiq

The concept of a digital twin has been around since 2002, first introduced by Dr. Michael Grieves as part of his research agenda at the University of Michigan. He had a vision that a Digital Twin could be created as a virtual representation of a physical product. Today’s technology, including the Internet of Things, advanced simulation, and highly sophisticated laser scanners, can now create a digital representation of almost any physical object.
