PhD scholarship in supply chain management, with focus on 3D printing

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship in 3D printing/additive manufacturing in the area of supply chain management.

The PhD student will pursue interdisciplinary research projects with explicit attention to analysis of business opportunities and implications of 3D printing/additive manufacturing for relationships in global supply chains. This can include but is not limited to questions such as:

  1. What impact will 3D printing services have on global supply chains? How will it influence the way business is done and how will it create new business models
  2. What conditions or variables can drive the impact of 3D printing services with regards to the management of the supply chain? 
  3. In what way can the complexity of supply chains be managed by the means of 3D printing business models, especially considering low volume, high variety and low demand visibility? In what way will 3D printing influence the complexity (e.g., formality, length) of contracts between supply chain members?
  4. How should business processes that involve different supply chain members be designed if 3D printing is integrated?
  5. How can 3D printing be used to improve the resilience and sustainability across global supply chain?
  6. What types of potential uncertainties and disruptions are likely to arise for different 3D printing scenarios and how can these be managed?
  7. How should risk and revenue be shared between the supply chain members and 3D printing service providers?
