The wind power industry is one of the fastest growing industrial sectors in Germany. This leads to substantial challenges for this young industry. Efficient supply chains gain particular importance to cope with these challenges. Therefore, the Institute of Business Logistics and General Management (LogU) at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) has analyzed supply chains in the German wind power industry in cooperation with Pleyma GmbH in 2008 and 2010 and identified significant deficiencies in supply chain risk management (SCRM) practices. In 2012 the data gathering has been successfully conducted under the academic supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Wolfgang Kersten.
The analyses will be finished until the end of the third quarter 2012. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
