Selected Efforts in Supply Chain Related Issues

Productivity-oriented Manufacturing System Simulation

Date: Summer 2002
Employer: University of Cincinnati
Position: Research Associate of Intelligent CAM Systems Laboratory
Managed two students to develop SimPro, a software tool for productivity simulation and process improvement of complex manufacturing systems. This system identifies the sub-systems like “series”, “parallel”, “assembly”, “expansion” and “complex”, and enables the process improvement by locating the productivity bottleneck in the manufacturing system. The results were published in two journal papers. C++ Standard Template Library (STL) and ATL (Active Template Library) were used to build the simulation models.

Design Supply Chain by Product Characteristics

Date: Spring 2002
Employer: University of Cincinnati
Position: Research Associate
Classified manufacturing supply chains into three types, namely, lean, agile, and hybrid. Studied on the relationship between an appropriate type of supply chain and the characteristic of product an organization is manufacturing. Based on “Supply Chain Operation Reference (SCOR) Model”, an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) model was developed and implemented to assist organizations in supply chain selection.

Supply Chain Integration

Date: 11/2001 ~ 01/2002
Employers: University of Cincinnati/University of Hong Kong
Positions: Research Associate/Assistant
(1) Developed SimPro, a tool for productivity simulation and process improvement of a complex manufacturing system. (2) Developed WeBid, a web application to facilitate the supplier bidding and evaluation environment. (3) Developed CyberComplain, customer complain web service, which helps company collect feedback and helps customer get resolution from web. (4) Involved in developing components of web-based ERP for some government departments. (5) Visual C++/Basic was used to develop middle tier COM components. ASP and Access were used in web server. Visual Basic was used to develop some client applications.

Web-based ERP Application

Date: 09/2001 ~ 12/2001
Employer: Netwinner Cyber Technology Co.,LTD. Shen Zhen, China
Position: Sr. Software Engineer
As a Sr. Software Developer in an IT company, I was responsible for more than 100 COM components for the products of iERP, iSCM, iHRM, and iKM. These products have become major elements of eMP (Electronic Management Platform), the flagship of netwinner.net. Two customer solutions were involved, using technologies of XML, COM and ASP, in an environment of Windows and SQL Server 7.0.

Web-based Supply Chain Management

Date: Summer 1999
Employer: University of Hong Kong Hong Kong
Position: Research Assistant
Studied on methodologies of implementing web technologies in the supply chain. ActiveX controls techniques were used to build up components of Product Inquiry, Demand Decomposition, Supplier Selection, Purchasing Fulfillment, Market Forecasting, Delivery Management, Inventory Management, etc. This fat-client web application was tested in a manufacturing enterprise.

Study on Customer Relationship

Date: Spring 2001
Employer: University of Hong Kong Hong Kong
Position: Research Assistant
Developed CyberComplain, customer complaining web service/application, which helped companies collect feedback and helps customer get resolution from web. It could become an integrative customer feedback center/platform. Java Script, ASP, Microsoft Access and HTML were major tools used.

Early Supplier Involvement

Date: 2001
Employer: University of Hong Kong Hong Kong
Position: Research Assistant
Developed WeBid, a web application to facilitate the supplier bidding and evaluation environment. The web application was to enable the early supplier involvement in the new product development process on the web by providing a shared platform between
suppliers and customers and some partnership decision making forms.

Collaborative Supplier Performance Measurement

Date: Autumn 2000
Employer: University of Hong Kong Hong Kong
Position: Research Assistant
Developed algorithms of collaborative supplier selection based on Linear Programming (LP), Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM). Built up a web site to facilitate the functions, using techniques such as ASP, Java, and COM (with Visual Basic).

Management Information Systems

Date: 07/1997 ~ 03/1998
Employer: Nanjing Automation Research Institute Nanjing, China
Position: Assistant Manager of MIS Department
Prepared the bidding proposal of MIS (Management Information System) projects for (1) Anqing Electrical Bureau of Anhui province (2) Local Taxation Bureau of Jiangsu Province; built up prototype systems using Borland Delphi to show the main components and functions; recruited temporary employees; managed/developed sub systems using Power Builder/Visual Basic and Oracle/SQL Server.
