Research and development 

Projects

  • MAIA - Models and Methods for an Active Ageing workforce: An International Academy 

 

MAIA is a European research project with a focus on a timely and strategic international challenge: the efficient involvement of ageing workers in the manufacturing systems of the future.

MAIA is a ‘Research and Innovation Staff Exchange’ funded by the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.The project is aimed at strengthening research collaboration through active networking, staff exchange and dissemination activities between 7 European universities from Italy, Germany, France and Slovenia as well as 6 non-European universities from USA, Japan, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Canada.

The academy will focus on active ageing industrial workforce problems and needs.The network is multidisciplinary with leading expertises on ageing and psychosocial aspects, ergonomics, manufacturing system design, robotics/assistance technologies, and economics.

The consortium offers a unique opportunity that creativity and entrepreneurship will flourish and will help exchanged personnel to turn creative ideas into age-friendly manufacturing system design and management, reaching breakthroughs in Industrial engineering and robotics, human science, ergonomics and operation management.

At Kedge, the research group is guided by Olga Battaïa (CESIT, Kedge Centre of Excellence).

Pedagogy and student life 

Trainings associated with the centre

Members of the Supply Chain centre of excellence actively participate in the Supply Chain training at the school. They regularly participate in the various ISLI training programmes, both for initial trainings, apprenticeships, and continuous professional development. Gerald LANG oversees the Academic Division of the ISLI programme in continuous professional development. 

Centre members are also involved in the ITL, GEP, IBBA, and EBP programmes on specialisation tracks or acculturation modules on the supply chain and/or maritime field. CESIT also offers custom training within companies in its areas of expertise

Theses and missions 

The CESIT also assists students with their research thesis work (required for validation of the ISLI training) and the ‘ISLI missions’ (a semester-long job in small groups of 4 to 5 students in partnership with a company), for both our programmes in France and abroad. We oversee approximately two hundred theses per year as well as a dozen missions. 

Beyond their educational aims, theses and missions feed the work of CESIT members (research and case studies in particular) and support the development of strategic partnerships with the companies involved (many of the team’s projects have been started by missions and theses). 

  • Thierry Roques supervises our MBA students on our Chinese and French campuses: Mentoring MBA students for their SBP (Strategic Business Plan) This is the work that MBA students do throughout their whole programme to develop an existing activity within their company or to create a new activity or business. Thierry Roques oversees the SBPs with a SCM dimension.
  • Joerg Hofstetter oversaw the thesis of Elina Aberle: “What are the requirements of monitoring performances of sub suppliers?”, particularly remarkable ! The thesis explores the difference between monitoring direct and sub-suppliers, the approaches used to monitor supplier performances, and the preconditions of monitoring sub-suppliers based on the approaches found? The thesis investigates a branded food company as case study. The contribution is in particular on the emerging attention given to sub-suppliers. 
  • Food waste at K’Fet in the Kedge Business School in Bordeaux (May 2020). This study was conducted by a group of 6 MSc ISLI students in Bordeaux: Antonin Hyest, Sanjai Saravanan, Mukundan Sreemohan, Muhammad Birama Sylla, Mélanie Tapa, and Chengfeng Yang. In partnership with Eurest and the KEDGE CSR department, the group examined food waste in the food service industry, particularly focusing on the school itself. By collecting and analysing data such as the volume of waste, the degree of customer satisfaction, and more, our group of students was able to formulate recommendations for more sustainable food management at KEDGE food service places. This work was overseen by Gautier Stauffer. 
  • The effect of conflict intensity on the efficiency of humanitarian supply chains (February 2020). Ernst-Maximilian Kronreif, MSc ISLI – Global Supply Chain Management. Bordeaux. This study examines the efficiency of the supply chain in exceptional circumstances such as armed conflicts and natural disasters. Ernst-Maximilan was particularly interested in the impact of wars on the humanitarian supply chain in the period from 2010 to 2017 in sub-Saharan Africa. He first identified and studied the correlations between the intensity of the conflicts and certain supply chain performance indicators, then validated his analyses with people on the ground. This work was co-directed by Gautier Stauffer. 
  • The ISLI mission: The French fashion industry With Circular Economy becoming a key concept both for governments and business, the effects of such a transition are largely unknown. The French fashion industry is highly important for the French economy. The value chains for apparel are highly debated, and there is little doubt about that they have to change substantially. However, with the many different developments in technology, trade governance, sustainability, consumer requirements and demand, and investor strategies, there are many factors that require consideration. How should French fashion companies position themselves for and in these future (circular) global value chains? What should be done internally, what by close partners, and what with little own involvement? 

News related to students / educational news 

  • Amir Pirayesh, Yann Bouchery, Mehdi Amiri-Aref - ISLI students mentorship for The Amazon Innovation Award 2019 edition. Students participated in the European final. 
  • Alexandre Lavissière - ITL Msc. students mentorship for The Fresh Connection. Students were selected for the final round at Europe stage. 
  • Laurent Fedi - Creation of the first version of the Maritime Sulitest with Msc International Trade and Logistics students (Automn 2019) ITL students drafted a questionnaire of 20 questions on CSR in shipping. This questionnaire was defended in front of KEDGE CSR Department and Surfrider association in December 2019. The aim of this questionnaire is to test the awareness and knowledge on maritime CSR of future ITL students and employees/managers of shipping companies. This first version will be improved this year with the new intake of ITL students.
