PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT

The project intends to address a strategic issue of the supply chain, namely its competitive repositioning in a changed international context, a competitive environment in which the pressure of competitors from across the Alps is very high and therefore urgent to close the deep competitive gaps. To this end, it is necessary to jointly address different research themes, especially for two main factors: 1) in-depth analyses of the supply chain show the strong link between strategic/organisational/distributive and technological/production problems, so that only a systemic approach can identify truly effective and impactful integrated solutions; 2) the replicability of the proposed interventions will be certain and the domino effect is highly probable.
