Sponsored Research Projects
These days, senior managers and academics alike are increasingly concerned with supply chain design and operations in the UK and India with focus on performance excellence and associated costs.
Inventory management has emerged as one of the important tools to improve operational efficiency over the last 30-40 years across the globe. Japanese companies such as Toyota pioneered lean manufacturing, which emphasizes on the need to maintain low inventory levels across the supply chain through practices such as JIT, Kanban, vendor-managed inventory, etc.
A Project that seeks to explore Global and national systems and processes required to sustainably finance climate change, biodiversity and land degradation.
The primary objectives of the project are:
1. Developing a framework for implementation of PBL within HAL for management of PBL contracts in the future that will enable HAL to guarantee certain operational availability at the fleet level
The project was launched with a view to documenting the HR strategies during the economic downturn. Papers and cases prepared by several academics and practitioners on the theme will be edited and published as a book, which is already accepted by TMH for publication.
In this project, we plan to investigate the role of community monitoring systems in public health system in centres operated by Karuna Trust, a wellknown NGO identified as the lead agency in Karnataka for pilot projects in community health monitoring systems supplementing the computer-based information reporting systems.
India's primary healthcare system is acknowledged as poor in terms of meeting the needs and priorities of communities in rural areas. The current health information system at primary health centres accounts for patients treated and monies spent to higher authorities but provides little feedback or scope for local analysis and planning of healthcare.
In Her Name: Measuring the Gender Asset Gap- A Pilot Study to Collect Sex-Disaggregated Asset Data in Ecuador, Ghana, and India
It is increasingly recognised that ownership, access, and control over productive assets is an important determinant of a woman's wellbeing. Indeed a woman's assets not only contribute to her individual wellbeing but also to outcomes of the entire household, especially the future of her children.
This project aims at providing knowledge and tools for organizations to excel in software development on a global scale.
In this project, we propose to understand and formalize the notions of supply chain networks modelled as economic mechanisms and evaluate their structural and functional properties. Given specific assumptions on a particular supply chain network, we can analyse its efficiency for performing the specified activity.
