      • 10:00 am - 10:15 am Rob Johnston – Lecturer, Supply Chain & Organisation Management, Dorset CollegePresentation title: Are supply Chains a thing of the past? Presentation synopsis: In a global market, in constant state of flux can the supply chain survive? History of success, Current State & Challenges, Future state. I would like start the discussion looking backward at survival chains and what made them work. What can we learn from these chains? How can we apply this to the current environment? We live in a digital age where the consumer can press a button and buy on line without going to a shop or needing to touch the product. We live in a world market that demands immediate response and support services. The modern day supply chain has many challenges to current models and solutions available however looking forward into the future how can the supply chain last and keep up with the demands that exist today and tomorrow?

      • 11:05 am - 11:20 am Niall Fenelon – Senior Procurement Consultant, Bristol - Myers SquibbPresentation title: Recent developments in the procurement of high technology manufacturing facilities in Ireland. Presentation synopsis: Over the past number of decades, Ireland has been notably successful in attracting foreign direct investment into the country. During this time, many billions of euros have been invested by FDI companies in modern, high tech. manufacturing facilities in areas such as microelectronics and pharmaceuticals. Throughout this time, Ireland has consistently demonstrated world class leadership in its ability to deliver such projects to the highest quality standards, on time and in a cost effective manner when benchmarked against our international peers. This presentation shows how project procurement practices have evolved in Ireland in recent years to enable larger and increasingly more complex projects to be delivered in ever shorter time scales, helping to make Ireland an attractive location for foreign direct investment in the years to come.
      • 11:20 am - 11:35 am Dr Amaya Vega- Research Fellow, Socio-Economic Marine Research Unit (SEMRU), NUI GalwayPresentation Title: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF MODE AND ROUTE CHOICE FOR INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT IN IRELAND Presentation Synopsis: This presentation shows preliminary results from an on-going research project where we analyse the transport mode and route preferences of Irish manufacturers when shipping goods to Continental Europe. We use an efficient discrete choice experiment to model the impact of various transport attributes on the final Irish manufacturers’ choice of shipping mode/route. In particular, we consider the decision to be made between two routes; one in which goods are shipped to the continent via the UK landbridge and the other in which goods are shipped direct to the continent without UK passage. Generally, these two routes are associated with contrasting levels of service in terms of reliability. The degree to which exporters are willing to make trade-offs in terms of variation in service attribute is of particular interest in this study, as it is envisaged that increased congestion and emissions levies within the UK are likely to reduce the competitiveness of the UK landbridge option, and increase demand on the direct service route. Results from this study will contribute to the understanding of the demand for international freight transport services in Ireland to continental Europe and will assist in estimating the potential impact of road-freight taxation on the logistics competitiveness of the export sector in Ireland. This research is funded by the Marine Institute through the Beaufort Marine Socio-Economic Research Award, with the support if the Irish maritime Development Office (IMDO).

      • 11:50 am - 12:05 pm Howard Knott – M.A., FCILT., Logistics Consultant, Irish Exporters AssociationPresentation title: 2016, the year the freight container comes of age. Presentation synopsis: The modern maritime freight container has, over the past 50 years, developed into being the key piece of intermodal freight equipment around the world. Over the years carriers have specified many different developments of the basic standard box to facilitate the carriage of certain commodities or operation in different marketplaces. The talk will briefly describe some of these developments but the real focus will be on two of the changes that will significantly impact every Irish exporter using ISO container equipment in a Supply Chain. We will explore some of the significant technical developments facilitated by the internet of things giving a step change in cargo traceability and handling. The more pressing development is, however, that from 1st July 2016 no such container can be shipped anywhere unless the shipper can certify the exact weight of the container and its contents.

      • 1:35 pm - 1:50 pmKarl Rush, New Business Manager- ERIKS UK & IrelandPresentation Title: Factory stores – manufacturing’s necessary evil Presentation Synopsis: Following research undertaken jointly with The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in to the effectiveness of UK & Irelands manufacturing’s supply and operation of maintenance stores we found that nobody can deny that industry is now amongst the most efficient in the world. A tight focus on cost-down measures has produced lean, competitive industries which are capable of competing, and winning, in globalised markets. And yet, even in the biggest and best industries, just away from the factory floor there is a room which is cluttered, seemingly badly managed (or not managed at all) and overloaded with inventory. The storeroom or ‘factory stores’ is all-too-often a black hole which sucks in stock and inventory, and is seemingly incapable of satisfying the demands of its stakeholders in other parts of the business. Karl will review the findings of this research and highlight some quick checks you can undertake to identify the scale of risk stored up in your stores.
