MIT Supply Chain Forum Launches Manufacturing Technology Advisory Board

The MIT Forum for Supply Chain Innovation has formed a Manufacturing Technology Advisory Board to bring MIT academia and research together with major technology providers and industry leaders to collaborate on key issues in the U.S. manufacturing industry, such as technology, process innovation, supply chain risk and reshoring enablers.

"The manufacturing industry is in need of process and technology transformation to enable innovation, efficiency, and sustainable business growth and I think this board will help lead that conversation and effort," said MIT Professor David Simchi-Levi. The board will work under his direction and will be chaired by the Forum's chief strategy officer, Leslie Sheppard.

The MIT Forum for Supply Chain Innovation also announced today that Infosys, a global provider of business consulting, technology, engineering and outsourcing services to the manufacturing industry, has become a strategic partner sponsor of the Forum and is joining the technology advisory board.
