Profile Information

The Centre focuses on aspects of 'Productivity Improvement' across a broad spectrum of research areas:

Quantitative analysis brings together researchers from across the Business School who use quantitative methods in their research. Research encompasses but is not restricted to Economics, Finance, and International Business. Their research focuses on analyzing primary and secondary datasets using empirical methodologies supported by the theory, to identify and explain current economic and financial issues.

In strategic operations management, our interest lies in the design of lean and agile operations and organisations as well as in consolidating the knowledge driven by the application of operations management concepts and theories within different sectors.

In logistics, supply chain & transport we look at aspects of logistics and inventory management applications; transport research considers the economic, environmental and policy implications of key developments and issues in the rail, road, air and shipping sectors; supply chain management examines network dynamics, alignment, responsiveness and agility mechanisms.

Our work in performance measurement systems includes the investigations of metrics as drivers for enhancing enterprise performances through the diffusion of established performance metrics within supply chains, and the development of predictive performance measurement frameworks, models, methods and tools.
