Al-Hakim, Latif (2005) Waste identification: a supply chain strategy perspective. In: 2005 International Conference on Business and Information (BAI 2005), 14-15 Jul 2005, Hong Kong.
The paper deals with the relationship between waste reduction and supply chain strategies and argues that the competitive advantage of a supply chain can be viewed as an ongoing process of acquiring control over different types of waste. The paper orients the managerial thinking to aggregating non-added value activities into waste zones and recognises three waste zones for supply chains; information zone, strategic decisions zone and system variations zone. The paper identifies several parameters for measuring the performance of supply chain waste reduction.
