General Motors supports 12th annual Wayne State Supply Chain Case Competition

General Motors and the Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business are welcoming some of the leading supply chain students in the nation to Detroit for an in-depth look at the supply chain systems that support the automotive industry and its high-tech vehicles.

The 12th annual General Motors/Wayne State University Supply Chain Case Competition will bring 19 university SCM programs to the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center from Oct. 6-8. This year’s case involves mitigating and overcoming supply chain constraints that have rippled through the value stream for heated seat components in the Cadillac LYRIQ.

Competitors this year will represent Bowling Green State University, Central Michigan University, Colorado State University, Grand Valley State University, Howard University, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis, Iowa State University, Kansas State University, Miami University, Michigan State University, New Mexico State University, University of North Dakota, University of Northern Iowa, Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico), Texas Tech University, Wayne State University, Weber State University, West Virginia University and Western Michigan University (last year’s winner).

The competition is made possible by sponsors Bose, Lear, Ryder, Denso, ACG and AIAG.
