Ohio State wins 2016 GM/Wayne State supply chain competition
Ohio State University has taken top honors at the sixth annual General Motors and Wayne State University supply chain case awards. This year, 20 schools, including three international institutions from Brazil, Mexico and Poland, met in Detroit to compete for the main prize. The competition introduces students to the issues and challenges involved in producing leading technology vehicles through a case study. This year’s case addressed global purchasing and logistics issues related to the Chevrolet Bolt. John Taylor, chair of the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management at Wayne State’s Mike Ilitch School of Business, said this year’s case was one of the most comprehensive to date, involving a variety of supplier quality and cost issues that students had to sort through.
