    ​The Boeing Center for Supply Chain Innovation at Washington University in St. Louis is a world-class research center in global supply chain management, supply chain finance & risk management, and operational excellence. Well regarded for our thought leadership in supply chain management, technology-driven innovation, and process optimization, we create and disseminates knowledge on cutting-edge supply chain and operational excellence practices.

    Through collaborative work with leading industrial and service firms via corporate partnerships, we help organizations optimize their global enterprise processes, devise effective risk management approaches, and develop innovative business models and supply chain solutions to better match their supply of products and services with global market needs.

    The Boeing Center creates value through collaborative research in technology, information, and supply chain management, with a focus on the proprietary challenges member companies face. We undertake a number of custom projects annually for members. Teams of PhD and other Olin Business School graduate students tackle these projects, working closely with Olin faculty to find solutions that build a competitive advantage through strategic supply chain management and technology-based process re-engineering. We also sponsor seminars, conferences, and other programs to address critical issues and bring to light the latest thinking in the information, technology, and supply chain fields.
