Redistributed Manufacturing Workshop hosted in Euroma Conference 2016

Mohamed Zaki was one of the panellists in the Redistributed Manufacturing Workshop which was organised and hosted in Euroma Conference 2016. Mohamed presented the impact of Big data on Redistributed manufacturing (RDM). RDM is an emerging umbrella term, adopted to denote all various aspects of technology, systems and strategies that change the economics and organisation of manufacturing, particularly with regard to location and scale.

The workshop invited operation management scholars and practitioners to explore key issues affecting the realisation of RDM, such as Big Data, understanding operational risks, supply chain resilience and reconfiguration, how intellectual property or other legal and regulatory issues will be managed, modelling financial impact scenarios, requirements and resource factors, and evidencing contribution to competitiveness, health or environment.
