    From Pandemic Disruption to Global Supply Chain Recovery
    Hello!

    I'd like to invite the community to a webinar that the INFORMS Southeastern Michigan Chapter is holding on Wednesday, April 1 from 5-6pm.

    Tune in for a timely and informative webinar about the impacts COVID-19 is having on global supply chains. What started as a virus, has rapidly grown to a deadly pandemic which is now disrupting global supply chains that will take time to recover. David Simchi-Levi, a well-known INFORMS member and editor-in-chief of the INFORMS journal Management Science, leads the talk about the need for a quick response to this challenge. He will introduce concepts and methods that supply chain executives can use to identify critical suppliers; assess the impact of these suppliers on their business; develop a recovery plan that secures capacity and addresses business challenges. Simchi-Levi is a Professor of Engineering Systems at MIT. He is considered one of the premier thought leaders in supply chain management and business analytics.

    In the event that the webinar is full, we will be live streaming to the INFORMS' Facebook channels. We will also share the webinar video after it is completed.

    Thanks, and hope to see everyone online!
