    INFORMS Southeast Michigan Chapter is organizing a webinar by Dr. David Simchi-Levi next Wednesday 5-6pm. The topic is "From Pandemic Disruption to Global Supply Chain Recovery".

    The rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus is already having a huge impact on the global economy, which is rippling around the world via the long supply chains of major industries. In this webinar we will focus on the need to quickly respond to the challenge. Specifically, we will introduce concepts and methods that supply chain executives can use to (i) identify critical suppliers; (ii) assess the impact of these suppliers on their business; (iii) develop a recovery plan that secures capacity and addresses business challenges.
