With increasingly fierce global competition, firms today need to confront a variety of issues in order to survive and to acquire reasonable profit. Not only the service industry is service-oriented, the manufacturing industry is undergoing a major transition to services, both in sales and in business structure. The move toward more extensive, customer-oriented products and services has become common practices among the firms. Thus, firms often have to provide customers with integrated product service packages and integrated solutions rather than traditional products and services. For instance, many high-technology firms are evolving and enhancing their
service offerings to meet market demands through providing services, such as original design manufacturing (ODM) and original equipment manufacturing (OEM), and under various requirements, such as emergency orders and quality needs. Many leading firms are also striving toward the successful implementation of integrated supply chain management and service strategies. Due to the complexity of the business environment, well-constructed models are necessary to facilitate relevant operations management and decision making.
The special session will consists of eight papers, and each paper has a topic that is related to the fields, such as operations management, business decision making and supply chain management, in today’s competitive business environment.
