About the Advanced Supply Chain Collaborative
The Advanced Supply Chain Collaborative (ASCC) is an initiative of the Global Supply Chain Institute. ASCC works as a collaborative think tank, engaging industry experts with faculty from the Department of Supply Chain Management with the goal of understanding how companies can leverage advanced innovations. In this way, ASCC is not conducting research that explains past phenomena but actively engaging with member companies at the senior level to help them compete.
