Company: Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics Institute

The Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL) at Georgia Tech provides global leadership for research and education in supply chain engineering. We define “Supply Chain Engineering” as the application of scientific principles to optimize the design and integration of supply chain processes, infrastructure, technology and strategy. While SCL has resources and programs in supply chain management, its primary focus is on development of new tools for analysis, design and management of logistics processes, and new concepts and strategies for the practice of supply chain engineering.
