Traditional supply chain analysis focuses on tangible products.  To date, there has been surprisingly little research that has examined supply chains where the “products” are people.  A seminar on the afternoon of June 14 at the University of Memphis will look at how supply chain concepts and simulation technology used in managing traditional supply chains can be applied to human supply chains.

The seminar will run from 2 to 5 p.m., and a reception will follow.  It will be held in the Methodist Presentation Theater of the FedEx Institute of Technology.

There is no charge for the seminar, and complimentary parking will be available in the adjacent parking garage on Innovation Drive, just off Central Ave.

Four major sessions will focus on criminal justice, healthcare, hospital patient access, and the U.S. Navy’s manpower recruitment and development.  A fifth session will discuss an initiative proposed for the Urban Child Institute.

The event is sponsored by the FedEx Center for Supply Chain Management and the enterprise Simulation and Optimization Lab (eSOL), both associated with the University of Memphis, and by the Navy Personnel Research Studies and Technology (NPRST) group.
