Identification and characterization of network structure in interconnected supply chains

Aktivität: Gespräch oder VortragVortrag


Global supply chains can be modeled as networks having actors that are companies and relationships between actors. The relationship can be contractual (undirected arcs) or represent the material flow (directed arcs). From social network analysis, many metrics can be used to analyze the structure of such a network. This research idea is based on relationships between more than 10.000 companies that were extracted from Bloomberg. The network is analyzed from the perspective of several important actors and from the birds-eye view. This allows to characterize the overall network structure as well as the position of the important actors.
