3 Project Description Time: 1 August – 31 August 2008 Total project value: £10092
4 Project Background The proposed project explores how the University of Sheffield can benefit through using the WiLCO software in modelling ‘Low Carbon and Green Supply Chains“. SEAMS believe the benefits in using WiLCO will be; to speed up the production of results, use of the latest life cycle modelling techniques from other industries, use of optimisation techniques in determining the best strategies for ‘Low Carbon and Green’ supply chains.
5 SEAMS Background SEAMS deliver its WiLCO software and associated consultancy services into organisations to improve their decision making. Using an organisation’s data, analysis is undertaken to build a model within the WiLCO technology. WiLCO then optimises this model to identify the best strategies to deliver the maximum return to an organisation’s stakeholders. For SEAMS clients in the water market, this means optimising investment in the assets (water pipes) to deliver customer service at least whole life cost.
6 WiLCO Background The modelling framework within WiLCO provides an ideal structure to model a product’s full life cycle. It provides a framework to capture the key performance aspects of supply chains; the costs incurred; account for the energy and carbon footprint. Furthermore, WiLCO can be used to explore the alternative strategies. Ultimately, these strategies can be optimised to identify the least cost strategy to meet defined performance and environmental standards.
7 Aim and Objectives The scope of the project is to explore how the capabilities of this modelling framework can be used by LSCM in supply chains. The problem of modelling the full supply chain, the energy and carbon audit will be defined mathematically. A prototype configuration of the WiLCO modelling framework will then be documented. This will enable the data required to also be defined. The benefits of using WiLCO can then be fully identified and assessed against alternative supply chain modelling software.
