Abstract [en]

Given the pressure on the earth resources, transition to circular economy is the aspirational objective for most businesses. Most studies focus on the benefit of the circular economy. In this study we play the devil’s advocate and try to understand the dark side of this crusade. The objective behind this is to understand the negative externalities and to address them.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of the study is to investigate whether a combined Lean Six Sigma (L6S) philosophy can help to improve agility on supply chain and companies. Individual organizations cannot get agility, until they invest in their supply chain’s agility. Agile Supply Chain is recognized as very difficult to achieve in practice, and use of Lean Six Sigma Philosophy can be one option to get it.

Design/methodology/approach: The research follows the cases study methodology. A theory background is used with the objective of know how the executives and academics see the concept of agility in supply chain (sc) and companies. Furthermore, multiple-case study has been performed, by means of qualitative methods of data collection, such as observations, document analysis and face-to-face interviews with different specialist. Pattern matching is used to compare the empirical result with the predictive one from literature.

Findings: This research demonstrate positively that L6S can help to improve to agility on supply chain and companies. The seven companies included in the study have integrated some tools and methods from both philosophies and all have aligned L6S with good results in agility concept. Also, shows that using L6S philosophy production speed will increase and responsiveness and flexibility will improve combined with a more robust process. It has been indicated that agility implies increased variation, where a Six Sigma approach is useful controlling and monitoring such variations. 

Originality/value: The research point out that a combined Lean Six Sigma philosophy develop the Agile Supply Chain and companies. Lean and Agility philosophies are closely related, and the Lean philosophy may be one stage into the development of agility. Although at the same time, they differ in many respects.

Abstract [en]

Reshoring manufacturing is a strategic decision because of its cost, implications, and complexity. Existing models have largely focused on cost aspects in reshoring decisions and are considered limited in assisting practitioners in the reshoring decision-making process. Variables like cost and quality have been the most important, whereas environment and sustainability seem not a priority, arguing for the myopic nature of these decisions. Therefore, this study employs system dynamics (SD) to expand practitioners’ mental models for the reshoring decision-making process. To do so, first, variables and heuristics are retrieved from the literature. Next, an industry expert is interviewed to have a practitioner’s input. Finally, a descriptive SD model is built by connecting variables and heuristics. The findings indicate that the behavior of the variables in reshoring decisions is dynamic over time. Furthermore, the variables are inter-linked, resulting in non-linear, multi-caused reshoring decisions. The presented SD model allows incorporating the variables that are sometimes difficult to quantify and provides a holistic view of the variables, their relationships, complexities, and the dynamics involved in the reshoring decision-making process. This study contributes to reshoring literature by using SD perspective in the reshoring decision-making process and proposing an SD model for reshoring decision-making. This study assists practitioners in expanding their mental models regarding the reshoring decision-making process. It is further argued that the proposed SD model may work as a generic steppingstone to further develop company-specific feedback-oriented models to support in their reshoring decision-making processes and to support future research on the topic.

Abstract [en]

The traditional food supply chains are vulnerable to external shocks, and this has been observable during the pandemic. Alternative food networks (AFNs) is seen as a potentially viable alternative to traditional food supply chains. AFNs encompass practices related to local food supply, involve few actors and promote sustainability. The purpose of this research is to identify strategies for sustainable AFNs, that enable growth and resilience during uncertain times. To achieve the purpose, the SCORE (Strengths, Challenges, Opportunities, Responses, Effectiveness) method is investigated. The main findings include an up-to-date overview of the strengths, challenges, opportunities, responses and effectiveness of AFNs in uncertain environments.

Abstract [en]

There has been an increasing consumer demand for local and organic food as they are considered to be more sustainable, ecological, and healthier. The 'conventional' long food distribution system is not sufficient to fulfill the current needs. Consequently, short distribution systems for local and organic food have been gaining popularity, which is not only sustainable but also contributes to food security and satisfies local consumer demand. One such short distribution systems are Alternative Food Networks (AFNs). The AFNs have emerged as a promising provisioning system for local and organic food that promotes economical, environmental, and social sustainability and respect for farming tradition. However, the AFNs are facing challenges in increasing the distribution of local and organic food in the long term. The purpose of the paper is to make a review of the existing short food distribution systems for local and organic food and also to propose a research agenda. In order to achieve this, a literature review is conducted and different food distribution channels within AFNs are studied. The challenges for each food distribution channel are identified and then compared to 'conventional' distribution systems. The main finding of the study is a framework of the main challenges of short food distribution channels within AFNs. The practical implication is generic criteria to consider while designing a short food distribution system that closely connects consumers and farmers of local and organic food. The policy implication is to create favorable conditions to encourage short food distribution systems in the long term.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: Modern supply chains are at risk as a result of increasing disturbance. The use of Lean and Six Sigma’'s values, methods and tools can be one option to analyze, prevent and mitigate risks. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a combined Lean Six Sigma philosophy can support the awareness and management of supply-chain risk.

Design/methodology/approach: The methodology followed in the study is based on a literature review and multiple case study, performed by means of qualitative methods of data collection, such as observations on-site, face-to-face interviews and document analysis. Case selection includes the results of research conducted in seven large Swedish companies.

Findings: It has been indicated that Lean and Six Sigma values, methods and tools can be very effective in companies’ efforts to control the supply-chain risks and that they improve the companies’ ability to handle variability and risk management. Lean Six Sigma supports a risk-management culture in the focal companies, but they must involve customers and companies in the supply chain if they wish to create a risk-management culture in the entire supply chain. In order to do this, they can use the Six Sigma training structure, but they need to include more risk tools and methods developed for the supply chain management. It has also been indicated in the literature that if more people involve in 6S projects, the financial results will be better, and the innovation of processes will increase.

Research limitations/implications: These include suggestions for how the companies can use the Six sigma training structure to collaborate in the supply chain.

Practical implications: This study gives practical suggestions for how the companies in supply chain can collaborate and use the Six Sigma training structure for creating a more holistic view of supply chain, which also decrease risks in supply chain.

Originality/value: This study indicates that Lean Six Sigma supports risk awareness and management in the focal companies of the supply chains, which improves companies’ ability to handle variability and risk management. It has also been demonstrated that the companies should use the Six Sigma framework, especially training, as a foundation, and they should create common projects for better collaboration in the supply chain, which will decrease the risks in the entire supply chain.

Abstract [en]

The edible oil is considered one of the stars products in the cuban national market, as a result of its discharge it demands for the population and for the industries that use it as matter it prevails in its productive process [1]. Since the year 2005 the Supply Chain of Edible Oil has come carrying out investigations with the objective of elevating the levels of service to its final client. Following this purpose is made in this year an association between the Laboratory of Logistics and Management of the Production (LOGESPRO) and the Enterprise of the Oils ECASOL, coordinating entity of the Chain. In the beginnings of the work with ECASOL the emphasis is made in the availability studies of edible oil, and after to the application of the Value Network Model, later is making wider the field of action of the investigations to develop between LOGESPRO and ECASOL. The objective of the present case consists on analyzing the evolutionary development that has suffered the Supply Chain of Edible Oil in CUC with ECASOL like coordinating entity of the same one starting from the achieved association.

Abstract [es]

El aceite comestible es considerado uno de los productos estrellas en el mercado nacional cubano, debido a su alta demanda en la población y las industrias que lo emplean como materia prima en su proceso productivo [1]. En la Cadena de Suministro de Aceite Comestible se vienen realizando investigaciones desde el año 2005 con el objetivo de elevar los niveles de servicio a su cliente final. Siguiendo este propósito se crea en el propio año una alianza entre el Laboratorio de Logística y Gestión de la Producción (LOGESPRO) y la Empresa Comercializadora de Aceites ECASOL, entidad coordinadora de la Cadena. En los inicios del trabajo con ECASOL se hace énfasis en los estudios de disponibilidad de aceite comestible, pasando posteriormente a la aplicación del Modelo de Redes de Valor y así sucesivamente a un campo de acción cada vez más amplio en el marco de las investigaciones entre LOGESPRO y ECASOL. El objetivo del presente caso consiste en analizar el desarrollo evolutivo que ha sufrido la Cadena de Suministro de Aceite Comestible Comercializado en CUC con ECASOL como ente coordinador de la misma a partir de la alianza lograda.

Abstract [en]

This work addresses the process of opening enterprises (grant of license) in a municipality. The purpose is to perform the identification, analysis and redesign of the process of granting permits to private companies, then making a proposal for improvement. The chosen method was a case study, using a qualitative approach according to the BPM methodology to respond: how to improve and accelerate the grant of a license? As a result, the proposed model used the best practices for business registration to reduce the time to 70%, and using half of the involved sectors. The conclusion is that it is possible to reduce bureaucracy and increase the efficiency of public administration with the applied methodology. 

Abstract [sr]

Ovaj rad se bavi procesom otvaranja preduzeća (izdavanje dozvole) u opštini. Osnovni cilj ovog rada je da se identifikuju, analiziraju i redizajniraju procesi izdavanja dozvola privatnim preduzećima, nakon čega su prikazani predlozi za poboljšanje. Odabrana istraživačka metoda bila je studija slučaja, a primenjen je kvalitativni pristup prema metodologiji BPM-a kako bi se dali odgovori na pitanje: Kako poboljšati i ubrzati izdavanje dozvole? Kao rezultat, predloženi model koristi najbolje prakse za registraciju preduzeca u cilju smanjivanja vremena trajanja registracionog procesa za 70% uz eliminaciju polovine postojećih službi uključenih u posmatrani process trenutno. Zaključak je da je moguće smanjiti birokratiju i povećati efikasnost javne uprave primenom ove metodologije.
