Seminar: Supply chain models in Pakistan
August 8, 2009

A seminar on ‘Supply Chain Models in Pakistan’ was jointly organized by the Center for Supply Chain Research (CSR), Dr Hasan Murad School of Management (HSM) at the University of Management and Technolo gy (UMT), Lahore, and the Supply Chain Association of Pakistan (SCAP) at the Avari Hotel, Lahore, on August 08, 2009. The seminar was attended by a large number of participants, including corporate executives, supply chain managers, faculty members and students from various universities and representatives from industry and the media.

Inaugurating the seminar, Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad, Rector UMT, welcomed the delegates from the corporate world. He appreciated the initiation of cooperation and partnership between industry and academia for improved input, operations and output, collectively termed as supply chain which is an important area that has so far been neglected by industry, academia and the government. He added that supply chain was a dynamic field, posing a great challenge to all those who were engaged in it. He said that due to its significance and emerging need, UMT was seriously considering offering advanced studies, programs and courses in the field of supply chain in its MS degree package to train professionals and working people in industry as a gesture of its commitment to the business world, and improvement in the quality of education and research.

Mr Anil, Regional Head, Agility Logistics, gave a presentation on the activities and objectives of SCAP. Prof Dr Shaukat Ali Brah, Dean, Suleman Dawood School of Business, LUMS, while emphasizing on the SC model, said that the time had come when both industry and academia had to give more attention to supply chain. He stated that if you fail to plan then you plan to fail. Globally the competition was getting tough with every passing day and this changing scenario required a response from our side.

Qasim Qayoum from TCS also presented his views on supply chain. Mr Afzal Ali, Head of SC, Metro, explained the importance of supply chain in the context of the organization as Metro had branches all over the world and operated slaughter houses, warehouse centers, fish handling centers, etc. Mr Irfan Farooqi, Supply Chain Manager Century Paper Mills, gave a presentation and said that the maximum strength of supply chain was equal to the strength of the weakest link. Mr Naveed Sarwar, Supply Chain Manager Becton Dickinson, shared his experiences and the significance of supply chain in today’s world of business.

At the end, Dr A R Kausar, Pro-Rector UMT, thanked the participants, delegates and sponsors for coming together and showing commitment to this significant area of business.
