RIT supply chain faculty use impact of COVID-19 as real-world learning opportunity
The devastating impact of COVID-19 on national and global supply chains is being studied by experts all over the world. It has also presented research opportunities for supply chain professors in Rochester Institute of Technology’s Saunders College of Business and created a robust discussion between RIT students and faculty.
Assistant Professor Steven Carnovale and his colleagues study trends and developments in the logistic industry. Based on their research, they created the Logistics Managers’ Index, which uses logistics metrics such as transportation, warehousing and inventory to predict potential movements in the economy. Carnovale drew upon this research to explain to students the impact of COVID-19-related supply chain issues.
