This is one of the most exciting CFPs I ever worked with – one on “Games for Learning and Dialogue in Humanitarian Logistics“. Whether you are into board games, role games, video games, apps, serious games or business simulations, this is something to you. Start developing and testing games in humanitarian logistics! Who knows, perhaps some day boardgamegeek, metacritic, or gamerankings will pick up the discussion from here – but first it is time to write an academic article – or at least time to play with the idea

After decades of research and technological innovations to reduce transportation-related noise (yes, the most quoted book is from 1987, and there are even journals dedicated to noise control), Britain’s RoSPA suggests the unthinkable: they want electric cars to be forced to make more noise (in the Feb 2013 issue of “Care on the Road”)! Déjà vu? Sounds like a sequel to “Who killed the electric car?“…
Ok, this is a via-via-via reference, found through the logistics quotes discussion on the Operations & Supply Chain Academic Group on LinkedIn. But the quote is nice nonetheless:
“Physical distribution is simply another way of saying “the whole process of business”.” Peter Drucker.
The entire discussion can be found here, and a white paper collecting all sorts of similar SCM / logistics quote can be downloaded here. Add your quotes so that they can be added to the white paper!
PS. addition on Jan 9, just found another blog full of quotes, here they are.
Happy new year 2013! Here’s some funny analogy between SCM and supply chain music.
This is a Greek + diaspora conference mostly but with the with to expand. Topics were certainly universal, ranging from transport infrastructure to city logistics, reverse logistics, to greening the agri-food supply chain. All coming with a reference to the current economic crisis, though – including articles that investigate the impact of the economic crisis on various aspects of the supply chain. Way beyond Greece, this is sthg we may all want to learn about.
This publication is in the league of the Journal of Irreproducible Results, or the Journal of Universal Rejection: “Chicken chicken”

How to write an abstract has just found a new format – don’t write it, film it! That’s what at least Andreas Wieland and Carl Marcus Wallenburg did for their latest IJPDLM paper on supply chain risk. Access their video abstract (and article) from here.
“If armies move on their stomachs, as the old soldier’s expression has it, then supply chains move on petroleum.”
