Building on the supply chain and logistics session of the 2016 Annual Meeting, the EPCA Supply Chain Program Committee (SCPC) has decided to focus its 2017 activities on digitisation in the Petrochemical Supply Chain.
EPCA has therefore engaged in a research project with Vlerick Business School to identify how digitisation can create extra value in the supply chain of the petrochemical sector.
To nurture this research, Vlerick Business School has developed a survey that we are pleased to share with you.
The purpose of this survey is to investigate the digital technology awareness and digital innovation practices in companies active in the petrochemical supply chain. In the fast-changing business and consumer environment, traditional businesses experience a wide range of challenges and opportunities, coming from new digital technologies.
Individual survey answers will be treated with the highest level of confidentiality in compliance with the contractual provisions of the agreement signed between EPCA and Vlerick Business School. All the data from individual answers will be aggregated and reported at the sector level.
The results will be presented by Prof. Ann Vereecke during the 51st Annual Meeting on October 3rd, 2017 in Berlin. A written report will also be prepared in the framework of this research project and shared in due course with the EPCA community.
Please access the survey by clicking on this anonymous URL (it should take 15-20 minutes of your time): https://vlerick.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bBNOKGXQkH48yup
The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, 14th July 2017.
Please do not hesitate to share this survey with colleagues who would contribute their valuable expertise on the topic (including the supply chain manager, CIO, COO, CEO, purchasing manager, sales manager and the financial manager).
Johan Devos at Bertschi, SCPC Chairman and Caroline Ciuciu, EPCA CEO (firstname.lastname@example.org) remain at your disposal, should you wish more information on the whole project.
We would like to thank you in advance for the time you will dedicate to this survey and for your valued contribution to our project.
