Visiting researcher Wu Chong returned to Central South University in Changsha this month after completing a successful one and a half year stay with the Technology and Information Management
group in the School of Management. His visit to Royal Holloway was made possible by a prestigious scholarship he received from the Chinese government.
Wu Chong has been working primarily with Dr David Barnes on research into new techniques for partner selection in agile supply chains. The pair presented an overview of their work at a School of Management lunchtime research seminar on 6th May. A more detailed summary appears in the School of Management Research Paper Series No. SoMWP0808: Four-phase conceptual model for supplier selection in agile supply chains
They will also present their research at the 3rd International Conference on Operations and Supply Chain Management in Wuhan, China in July. A research paper arising from the collaboration has recently been published in the leading operations management journal Production Planning & Control*. Another has just been accepted for publication in the Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management. Further research papers from the work are currently under review with other academic journals.
