The concept of demand forecasting is diminishing as more and more companies are now focusing on getting accurate and timely demand information rather than depending upon forecasts.
This is carried out by effective integration of information from all the nodes of the supply chain and disseminating upstream as well as downstream.
However, there are many industries that will continue to depend upon push strategy and demand forecasting.
The students may like to study about the drawbacks of traditional forecasting methods like time series forecasting, moving averages, trend analysis, etc.
Many companies want to incorporate real time data in their forecasting models and focus on forecasting for shorter periods.
This requires lots of additional knowledge over and above the traditional ways of working upon past demand data.
The modern forecasting models may be based on accurate knowledge of customer segments, major factors that influence forecasting accuracy, information integration, bullwhip effect, scenario planning, simulations, external factors, risks, and causal Fishbone or Ishikawa analysis. Most of the studies may be qualitative or triangulated.
Aggregation is carried out by a company to determine the levels of pricing, capacity, production, outsourcing, inventory, etc. Aggregation planning helps in consolidation of the internal and external stock keeping units SKUs within the decision and strategic framework for reducing costs, meeting demands and maximising profits.
It may be viewed as the next step of either demand forecasting push strategy or demand information accumulation pull strategy for carrying out estimations of the inventory level, internal capacity levels, outsourced capacity levels, workforce levels, and production levels required in a specified time period.
Aggregation planning in modern supply chains is carried out using advanced planning tools comprising of 2D layout maps, 3D spatial maps, structural maps, data association with map items, spatial data mining, location-aware data mining, analytical hierachy planning, etc.
The students may like to conduct qualitative case studies and modeling-based quantitative studies to research about modern practices of aggregation planning in various industrial and retail sectors.
He received PhD in and his thesis was entitled “Product and Process Design for Successful Remanufacturing”. Dr. Sundin has participated in several European Union projects regarding remanufacturing e.g. CAN-Reman, ERN, CIRC€UIT and CarE-Service along with many national projects. Remanufacturing is the process of rebuilding used products that ensures that the quality of remanufactured products is equivalent to that of new ones. Although the theme is gaining ground, it is. The Remanufacturing Industry: Anatomy of a Giant, Boston University, Jan. 7. The Remanufacturing Industries Council, coordinated largely by the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association and the Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery at Rochester Institute of Technology, has emerged as this type of organization.
I Global Supply Chains: In the modern world, suppliers in a country are facing direct competition from international suppliers as if the latter are operating within the country.
This has happened due to modernization of information management and dissemination, supply routes, payment channels, electronic contracts, leading to improved reliability and reduced lead times of international suppliers. E-Supply Chains are linked with E-Businesses that use Internet as their medium for accepting orders and payments, and then using the physical channels to deliver the products.
E-supply chain is an excellent example of pull strategy and short term demand forecasting. Information flow across the supply chain is instantaneous because both end points and the intermediate agents work through a single Internet enabled portal. E-Bay and Amazon are viewed as the two most successful companies using this concept at global scales with built-in electronic contract signing and management, electronic payment processing, and electronic delivery processing.
The students can find various case studies on E-Supply chains, although the empirical theories are still evolving.Remanufacturing Versus New Acquisition of Production Equipment: Definitions and Decision-making Checklist Master thesis work 30 credits, Advanced level Product and process development Production and Logistics Qi Yang.

Rochester Institute of Technology RIT Scholar Works Theses Thesis/Dissertation Collections Analysis of the environmental impact on remanufacturing . One proposed direction is remanufacturing, which is a process whereby used products having reached their end-of-life, are restored back to useful service-life.
Remanufacturing utilizes the energy and embedded value retained in a product upon reaching end-of-life.
