Developing meaningful coursework. Exploring innovative approaches towards operational improvement. Creating venues for collaboration among firms, students and faculty around the state and across the globe.
For over twenty-five years the DCMME Center has been the focal point within the Krannert School of Management for promoting education, research, and industrial engagement with those interested in operations management, manufacturing management, and supply chain management. This long standing history has bred a rich tradition of developing meaningful coursework, exploring innovative approaches towards operational improvement, and creating venues for collaboration between firms, students and faculty around the state and across the globe. Partnering with organizations, companies, not-for-profit as well as governmental and economic development agencies has allowed the Center to create the essential linkages that foster innovation, develop rich insights, and enable us to accomplish our mission of celebrating the vitality of operational excellence and the importance of a strategic supply chain view.
